    I just got off the phone with Apple and couldn't believe it when they told me that they would give me a refund for the Apple Protection Plan I just purchased because my product is 9 days out of warranty. Is there another company somewhere that warranties Apple equipment after the manufacturer warranty expires?

    You can try SquareTrade though I am unsure. Sometimes homeowner's/Renter's insurance will allow you to schedule it into your policy.

    But that would be insurance, not warranty, right?
    I mean, that would cover theft, damage, fire, etc, but not manufacturers issues
    At least that is how I understand it

    I thought they try to fix the problem for you, just like apple?
    i.e.
    you have to ship your product to them and they will try to fix it themselves, and if they are unable to, they will send it to another place.

    **correct me if i'm wrong ^_^

    Apple Care

    Not to sound like a jerk, but.....
    Apple says you can buy Apple Care as long as the item is still under the one year warranty. Pretty generous, since most companies only give you 15-45 days if that long.

    Sorry you missed it by nine, b ut it was no longer covered under their warranty.
