I've had some really good experiences with Apple. I cracked 2 different Iphone screens, and both were out of warranty / Apple Care. I brought it in, they looked at it for 10 minutes and replaced it with a refurbished phone both times, free of charge. They did ask me not to jailbreak my devices anymore, though.

Same story with my Macbook Pro that I've had since '06. The Battery malfunctioned in year 4, well past my warranty. Brought it in to the store, they looked at it for 5 minutes, checked something on their computer, went to the back, brought out a brand new $140 Macbook battery, tore the plastic off and handed it to me.

I have nothing to complain about with Apple's service thus far.

^ That's why I don't like chrome/nickel guns and parts. Anodizing > plating.

Also, I avoid buying the "new" phone because I know I will break it. Still using a blackberry torch, it's probably the slowest smart phone ever made, but I've dropped it on asphalt/concrete/gravel over a hundred times and it's never broken. And the battery lasts forever.

Plating isn't always chrome/nickel. The aurora plating that Eclipse did is durable like you wouldn't believe- much more resilient than anodizing. It's almost unreal. ....Granted they only did a total of like 42 aurora guns.

Companies need to make today's phones like the old Nokia phones.

"Drops Nokia, breaks concrete. Continues phone convo."

Yeah apple doesnt like it when you jail break their phones.

But I have to agree, even with Itunes they are great. I have had 1 hard drive crash and 1 computer stolen that my Itunes were on and both times they unlocked my online purchases and allowed me to re-download the songs. Same with my Ipod. That damned thing stopped working and I took to the store (no Apple Care, nothing) and they fixed it right there for free.

If Apple claims to fix something chances are high that the item was never really broken to begin with. Apple takes broken items and toss a refurbished one at you.

More or less the entire norwegian navy is sitting outside my bedroom window, stealth corvettes and everything. The latter can get up to and above 60 knots / 70 mph. For an armed vessel weighing 273 tons that's nuts.

Impressive, but that sounds worse than living near passing trains.

Get any chances to take some pictures? ..or will you get 'shot on sight'.

***RANT****

UGH!>!>!

I hate half.com

I bought a book on there where the seller listed that it came with a CD and Access Code. So when I get said book, surprise no access code! So I contact the seller they are WILLING to give me a 50% refund after I pay to ship it back to them and restocking fee?!?!?! So I file a claim, half.com says it doesnt matter what the seller listed the book with or what they promised you in writing or not the fact is that the seller listed the book as very good condition which means that they dont have to provide the access codes!!

I cant believe it! I mean how stupid do you have to be, Really???? If someone puts that what they are selling comes with certian items then hold them to it, ****.

The best part, Half said well you can always sell on our site....

I told them to **** off and ban my account, Im going to USAA and doing a charge back and the seller can come and pick up his damn book from the curb if he beats the trash man. (After a month long battle with half.com and firstclassbooks)

GH- too dark to get a pic of it since I don't have a tripod, but I have some from earlier this year somewhere.

Apparently Hostess is going out of business and 18,500 jobs will be lost.

Gather your Twinkies and Snowballs while you can. ...Or whatever your favorite post nuclear apocalypse snack is.

Yeah they were talking about that on the news today, from what most of news outlets say its a combo of 3 things:

The workers going on strike
The fact they went bankrupt 2 times in last 10 years
and Obamacare (They cant afford to pay the cost of the full medical for all of the employees with out passing the costs on to the consumer. They feel if they pass the costs on to us they would loose on sales because noone would want to pay for the goods anymore)

Funny thing is some of hte resturants are doing the same thing. Tacking on a 15% surcharge to everyones bill for the Obamacare and telling the customers why they are being charged more.

I guess Twinkie the Kidd will be no more...
