Happiness! Apple has extended its mellifluously named iBook Logic Board Repair Extension Program, and Wintermute’s serial number now puts it in the Officially Accepted Range of Machines That are Bad. Good deal. Time to bring it in to the happy elves at the local Fruitstand for some TLC.
On a snarky side note, though, I’d like to send this message to Apple: Took you long enough, didn’t it? You’d probably have generated a lot more goodwill from your customer base if you’d fessed up from the beginning instead of waiting more than a year and a half.
