Hi Jay:

Is there really anything wrong with sending first-level technical support
offshore?

Macs are macs, Windows is windows and mail is mail whether you're in Mumbai
or Memphis. As long as the language skills are good and the people are well
trained, it should be mostly irrelevant, IMHO.

Happy Holidays,
