Apple’s Unfortunate Policies

It seems that Apple, due to popular demand, has added an “AppleCare Protection for the iPod,”: which extends the warranty from one year to Three for $60. The unfortunate problem with this great addition to the AppleCare line is that my iPod missed the deadline by 5 days, because Apple did nothing to inform customers that they did in fact add the service.

This is infuriating.

5 days.


Would it be too much to ask for a grace period? Considering that I asked when I purchased my iPod if there was a protection plan and Apple had said, which was true at the time, no. Now, _wah-lah,_ here is the plan I would have bought a year ago. Apple’s stance on the matter is… sticking their fingers in their ears and going “Nu-nunu-nu-nu, I can’t hear you!”

My advice for all you people out there with newer iPods (Mebird, Naaman) take out AppleCare! it’s $60 bucks well spent. It covers everything from the iPod to it’s accessories. It’s really a no brainer.

  1. it is a great idea – BUT, if 60 dollars means eating that week or not – you have a tendency to buy pasta and things with it instead.
