    Your best bet is to e-mail Apple some companies like to offer help to students.

    As far as I know Apple employees are banned from posting on forums / blogs so you won't get any answering your thread.

    Any idea who I might want to email? The only email address i found was under Investor Support, which might make sense for some of those questions. I Guess ill give it a try.
