    Well, not exactly.

    I did just upgrade the ram in my new iBook from 512MB to 1.5GB. Noticable difference, and a very worthwhile upgrade for those considering.

    A special shout out to CanadaRAM who provided me with the 1GB stick. Reasonable price, and it was delivered to my door less then 24hrs after placing the order. :eek:

    I've just popped it in, and everything is working fine. Very impressive. Thanks again.

    That's not fair - I was expecting white casings and flames!!

    Nice RAM bump though.

    Isn't there some company that will send you a new product if your old one is defective, and you destroy it spectacularly, send them proof of the killing, then they send you a new one?

    I think it's Griffin. I remembre reading about this in regard to an iTrip...

    At first I was really expecting to see some flames. But than I lowered my expectations to just smoke. Well, I guess I shall just have to use my imagination.

    Stick was like $265 Canadian.

    Better prices in the US, but shipping and exchange rate applies. All in all I'm pretty happy with price and service.

    I had a Router that was like that, its gone now, but when I bought it, I bought a warranty on it for 2 years that would allow me to kick it, throw it, set it on fire, toss it, etc. and they'd replace it for free - bought it from CompUSA.

    Monster Cables has contracts with stores that, even if you cut the cable with a scissor the store has to give you the same one for free.
