Judge Orders Apple To Pay Up For Bad iPod Batteries

Link: http://informationweek.com/story/showArticle.jhtml?articleID=170101338

The settlement, which won tentative approval in June, gives buyers of the first two iPod models either $25 cash or $50 in credit at an Apple store that can be redeemed for any Apple-branded product, including iTunes downloads. Owners of the third-generation iPod are entitled to a free replacement battery if theirs fails.

This is kind of disappointing...

I had a 3rd Gen iPod....from October 2003 to August 2004....and I was hoping to get a $50 credit for it. Considering I (initially) replaced it with a 4th Gen iPod...which is now a year old.

Which kind of implies that it is probably suited for another upgrade, where $50 off of a new iPod would be nice. But, I don't really need a new battery for my old 3rd Gen iPod. Especially, since the would probably only offer an apple branded replacement (or 50% refund of an apple performed battery replacement). Ignoring that the aftermarket iPod battery is of higher capacity, etc. Plus they probably won't like the fact that I opened up my iPod myself (kind of roughly too....and stabbing myself, because I tried to pry it open using my pocket knife, probably complicates things for me....)

Wow, I'm feeling nostaglic.... )-o

I sure wish some of the old ASCII art from my BBS (Lunatic Haven) had survived. Unfortunately, it was a rather abrupt transition from the death of my Amiga 3000 to landing on the Windows wagon.

The Amiga 1000 was such a cool machine....my BBS started out on one, I was running a Kickbench in one drive (that expanded the running system into a ramdisk) and the BBS messages on the other drive. The 2MB memory expansion set me back like $1K. It was some time later before I got my first harddrive...$1200 for 100MB was considered a great deal back then (the Amiga and Mac people got together to do a group purchase....)

It was also the machine that I taught myself C on....:yes:

Also hard to believe was that the C64 was $895 once.

Decided to start rating some of the DVDs I had intended to rent, but ended up watching on HBO-HD instead....

Largely because after watching this one, it continued to occupy my mind last night.

I rate this 4 stars.

Now instead of subjecting some poor random forum to a long rambling thought, I will try to consolidate those things into this blog where they can be more easily ignored profess to be collected thoughts from my mind.
