Hm, if I’d be a US resident Apple would have extended the warranty on my iPod because the batteries of the early iPods weren’t good. They already replaced the whole iPod for me once, when the battery stopped recharging about eight months after I bought it. But there’s only a one year warranty, and now the battery’s started not lasting quite so long again….

I wonder if there’s any precedence for what happens with non US-residents in cases like this? Ideally, Apple Norway would extend the same extended warranty to Norwegians, and the same in other countries.

    “forbrukerkj¯p” in Norway, and if the thing is meant to last longer –
    its five years.

    Look at this for mobile phones:
