I had a little iPad accident this weekend and had been fretting about what to do about my shattered screen. Would Apple replace it? Could it be fixed? Well, I went to the Genius Bar at the local Apple store tongight and they confirmed that accidental damage was not covered by Apple Care. But by Saint Steve in Heaven, they decided to wave the repair costs due to an extended wait (~30 minutes) and gave me a new machine. Maybe they do this all the time? Maybe not. All I know is that Apple earned some serious loyalty points with me tonight.
I'm currently restoring from backup. Because I use the iPad to compose posts, blogging will resume in a day or so.
(Still hoping to read Weird Adventures on this sucker, as that's what I was reading when I suffered my mishap.)
