    Did you know they will also pay your mortgage if you ask? Not many people know that.

    ok, in aust. we do not have apple stores, we only have 'Authorized retailers'

    so if there is a problem they dont care, they just replace it FREE OF CHARGE TO EVERYONE, cept Apple.

    as for your car?
    i doubt it. unless you have the 'iCar'

    Nice team work there.
    I would suggest a high five. However, I, am British and would never resort to something so perfectly vulgar and so will shake your hand and shall see you on the putting green, after luncheon, my good sir.

    What an absolutely spiffing idea! You will, of course, join me and dear Emily for afternoon tea and a pipe afterwards?
    You must excuse me now sir. I must retire for the night as I'm due to have an early breakfast with a Mr. Sherlock Holmes. An excellent fellow, i must introduce you to at some point, a most incredible mind.

    G'night mate.

    Yea, I posted a picture from favorites, didn't remember what it had on it. Please post if they actually accept it back (I know it's not a regular Apple store), I might just have to fly on down south and set up nest there. :)

    OH NOES!

    We were aussie thread brothers, waiting for our preorders to arrive together... i feel your heartbreak!

    Good luck with the replacement. Of all the places to get a crack, thats not too bad a spot i guess.

    Get yourself an invisible shield or something - might help it stay together/functional for longer.

    By the way, youre from melbourne right? That's why you dont have dragons. They all hang out in the volcano near where i live...with the unicorns and fairies.

    Heh heh heh :D

    My Mighty mouse got clogged. Took it back to our good ol local Resseller, sent back to Apple, and got a new one free. Pretty happy with that.

    I'll be off to feed George, my hungry pet dragon, they're much larger here on the east coast, too many convicts to eat… :cool:
