I'm a former Retail Manager but that was back in 2005 so a lot has changed since then. I have a 64GB iPad 2 + 3G that I bought less than 6 months ago. Paid almost $900 for it. My girlfriend's father just died so we're rushing to get out the door and drive 12 hours down to deleware during a snow storm and the iPad slips out of my hands and onto our tile floor. Photo: I made an appointment for 3:30 at The Westfarms store in Connecticut. Basically, I can't afford a $900 iPad this week especially since we're 2-4 months away from a new model anyway so I'd basically just go without...oh dear god...my iPad for 4 months or until one comes out. So, I need tips. How do I angle this? The iPad works GREAT except it needs a new screen but Apple doesn't replace screens, they just give out new units. I need tips on how to convince a genius / manager to hook me up.
