Fucking Apple.

I got an iPod for graduating 4 months ago. FOUR MONTHS AGO. Keep that in mind. So, said iPod just crashed in some major terrible way, its screen is frozen, and it's running hot, and I tried plugging it into the laptop, and I got "Can't recognize disk." Yah, looks like it's majorly fucked.

So, I called support. "I'm sorry, we can't help you with this, because it's over 90 days. This call will cost $50 if you want to get it diagnosed."

Wtf? It's *FOUR MONTHS OLD*. So, I'm going to have to pay probably the entire worth of the bloody thing to get it both diagnosed, and then fixed. And ... I didn't do anything to it!

edit later: I did order the "Fix me" box from Apple, via the website referenced in many comments because of ralphmelton's help. But by the time I finally got to that part, I had to run out the door to go swimming, and didn't get to edit this entry... I am now! Just a bit late.

So at this point, I guess I get to wait for the thing to be fixed. Sigh.
