is it really "Applecare"?

In reply to: iPod takes a bullet, saves soldier...

because if you read this quote:

"The first had been damaged earlier and the store would not replace it, even with the additional warranty he purchased."

it's pretty evident apple doesn't care at all. Sad

Just give our hero a new Ipod damnit!!

yeah seriously. my comment was in jest, however...

In reply to: is it really "Applecare"?

it would be easy for soldiers dodging bullets to game applecare by making false claims...plus, they're a company that doesn't really want to be associated much with war, etc.

Still, I can't believe that applecare didn't honor their written word, ridiculous!

Interestingly enough, many procedure manuals used by the military are written at a middle/high-school reading level. I'll be that the well designed and easy to operate iPod is a prime choice in the field. They're already using it for misc. interpretations and public-service-announcements when they roll into certain areas.

Best,
S

The iPod didn't stop a bullet.

The jacket did, and the totalled iPod was what made the soldier aware to the fact that he'd been shot.
