    Given the various statutes related to unauthorized computer use passed
    in the past few decades, I suspect MIT is in fact a hotbed of illegal

    oh my god, you are COMPLETELY wrong on this, it's 3 ISSUE of ANY TYPE
    that Apple has taken in the machine and hasn't been able to resolve, you
    get a new machine, that's a POLICY. It has NOTHING to do with the same

    Did you even deal with Apple on this? or did you use your local Windows

    Apple would have responded to your complain and you would have lost.
    There are no valid class action suits on this subject at this time since
    Apple has resolved all customer issues for FREE.

    > No need. I got the refund and I'm done.


    yes, or a Refund from Apple... that can happen as well, but I don't

    Re: Activating an iPhone - Made SIMPLE by Apple.

    I got the total refund on that big POS!
    I tried to get apple to fix it. My local apple store were jerks.
    But when apple tells me in short, It's my problem. I went to small clams.

    Chicken ****s did not show up. After the judge looked at all the repair
    forms and things like I printed out, He awarded the case to me. I took it
    back to my local apple store and within about 20 mins I got the credit on my
    credit card.

    Never again will I own a apple product.

    So it's my problem ? Anyway you look at it, It's apple problem to fix it.

    Give em a break on that one ? Are you kidding ? So they fix it by a fan
    speed fix. Nice. What happens down the line when this poor fan is wore out
    from being turned up to cool down the chip ? Repair time. They wanted to
    keep this so bad they even offered me a half price apple care plan. Which I
    refused.

    Again, Google it. People reported a 10% loss in battery life due to the fan
    being turned on at startup and the lowering of the temp setting to come on
    sooner then normal to keep this oven cool.

    Place it on your lap and see how long it stays there before the heat frys
    your legs. I should have thought something was up when the display was
    sitting on a targus usb fan cooler.

    The letter I got with the laptop said it was a new problem everytime.
    It was never the same problem as before. But I had them when the shutdowns
    kept on. The final straw was the MB Replacement.

    > Did you even deal with Apple on this? or did you use your local Windows


    My local apple store. Which is a apple service center.

    And I also forgot to tell about the DVD Drive that ate the factory disc's.
    Large rings around the media. Two sets of those in less then a month.

    Caused by a bad dvd drive. Google has much info on this as well.

    Only after they said no at first and people started the class action. Once
    apple saw that they had no choice they fixed the problems.

    Were they fixed ? Don't know or care. I got a refund and that's that.

    Apple refused to help me. It's only when The local apple store sent it in
    and came back with the same problem is when I filled out the paper work.

    It was sent in for the shutdowns, Upon opening it up in the store, less then
    30 mins later it had done it again. That was when I had enough.
    The repair said mainboard replacement.

    The thing is, we don't hear about the thousands of cases where charges were
    either not filed, or were quietly dropped prior to the court appearance.
    So you get a distorted sense of reality by relying on just two court cases.
    If one of these cases is ever appealed, a higher court may well rule that no law
    was broken, and that use of unsecured Wi-Fi signals is similar to standing on a
    sidewalk and enjoying the shade from a shade tree that stands on someone else's
    property.
