Thanks Alot Apple!

Sun Apr 30, 2006 1:32 pm

So I got into my pool with the Nano and it broke. I called Apple and told them I broke it in my pool and didn't have a replacement/warranty card. They said no problem and would replace the Nano free of charge. I wasn't even charged a replacement fee or shipping. They sent a prepaid shipping box with DHL and I get a new Nano in 2 days.

I'm still in shock... bouncy

Forgot it was in my swim shorts...careless mistake.  


I did mention to the Apple Customer Care supervisor I spoke with that Apple should develope a water-proof version of the iPod for people like myself. He sent a memo to Steve Jobs!  Smile

What what what?

I sent in my malfunctioning 6 month old, under-warantee, PowerBook. They said it had liquid damage (not sure from what), which voided the warantee, charged me $1100 and then proceeded to take over 5 weeks to get it back to me (5 business days my ass). Glad it's going well for you, but hell, I wish they'd treated me that well.

Well, at least we know where all that money you have to pay for one of those external-HDDs-with-a-tiny-display-and-a-little-software goes to... oh and I do know a Nano has flash memory.

So... technically I could phone Apple, tell them I dropped my Nano in the pool and they send me a new one. Well that'd be good because I don't have one!!! Don't particularly like apple anyway.

It's called customer service and loyalty. Drew's ex has Macbook Pro 2.16 and a Mac Mini with the 23-inch Cinema HD display all on airport! So trust me Apple will replace a $200 nano for him due to his customer loyalty.

I can't wait for Apples Home Theater technology devices in late summer! Big grin
