Questionable Practices

When I bought my iPod I but in April asked the Genius at the Apple Story what can be done about the battery. I knew it was similar to a laptop battery and people need to replace laptop batteries all the time. The Genius told me that people had not had them long enough to kill the battery yet. He said that by that time, Apple should have something in place.

It appears that some people are finding that the batteries are starting to die at 18 months. Apple wants $255+ to replace the battery. There are other place people can buy replacement batteries. I still think that a lot of customers will be really upset by this. it will be interesting to see how Apple handles this. It could really turn people off the iPod.
