iPod battery lawsuit to be filed in January

“Another growing source of complaints surrounds Apple’s wildly-popular iPod line of digital music players, which many enthusiasts believe will get an upgrade at Macworld with the introduction of smaller, less-expensive models and a range of case colors.

In California, a lawsuit seeking class-action status is expected to be filed January against the company over the claim that Apple’s warranty does not run long enough to cover problems with the player’s battery.”

Look, Ipods need batterires. I will no complain if the batteries fail but give me an option to replace it!!! Dat is only fair.

When Ipod suggests that foks should buy another device instead of repalcing the battery.. that was a bone head move.

It’s not a new trend.

“New” as in the “the last several years.”  3 to 5 year warranties used to be standard.  Now you’re lucky if you get one, and that’s a real shame.

I’m very unhappy over the fact that I trusted the name Apple without checking into other MP3 players. For $400, I expect the iPod to have a battery that stays charged longer than my cell phone. Especialy if it’s only 2 months old!
