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.

    its five years.

    Look at this for mobile phones:

Do people flock to talks about ChatGPT because they are scared?

Whenever I give talks about ChatGPT and LLMs, whether to ninth graders, businesses or journalists, I meet people who are hungry for information, who really want to understand this new technology. I’ve interpreted this as interest and a need to understand – but yesterday, Eirik Solheim said that every time […]
