I think the problem is that while the "function" part of the unit is very durable, the "form" part ain't. If you can beat the crap out of it and it still plays, that's great... but we also want it to look good for longer than 10 seconds after you take it out of the box.narco said:Didn't someone run the nano over with a Volkswagen? I haven't received my nano yet so I can't really say for sure, but if something looks like it's easy to break, then take better care of it.
Apple used early adopters as beta testers. Financially, it makes sense I guess. It happened with the mini as well. Early units suffered from scratchy noise after a few weeks of use. Apple downplayed the problems and instituted a fix, silently of course. They refunded or exchanged faulty units and chalked it up as an expense of doing business.24C said:It seems Apple rushed the Nano out the door without too much real world testing, big mistake, but whose fault was it?
Worth saying again.Lacero said:...Them saying they used the same material as the 4G iPods is almost fraudulent. Can't believe everything they say, even from a company as perceived as trustworthy as Apple.
The guy who owns that site and flawedmusicplayer.com is a bit fishy. He was a contract employee/consultant to Microsoft. He claims to have first contacted Apple on 9/20 and put the site up on 9/21. He registered the Yahoo ID ipodnanoflaw on 9/14.narco said:
