so i don't know why, but all of a sudden my electronics have gone bezerk:

1) laptop hard drive started coughing, and was just about to die. dell replaced my 30 GB for a 40GB one, free.
2) my palm zire 71's button had gotten stuck. pretty scratched up; they sent me a brand new unit, free.
3) my ipod (totally beat up, scratched up etc) drive started clicking and misbehaving. they gave me a brand new replacement.

i've basically gotten all my favorite electronics brand new in the past week!

Was it a manufacture warranty?
ipods come with 1 year limited warranty; 9 months free warranty (the remaining 3 months there's a $30 fee).
i ran the HDD test on my ipod, it had a read error 20 mins in. i took it into an apple store and the battery was dead, and they diddn't have the charger. she said i'll just replace it, and handed me a brand new ipod. my jaw dropped.

My wireless router w/printer server failed, sorry out of warranty. Had to buy a new one.
Cable modem has a load handling issue, sorry we can only replace with same unit recommend buying your own modem.
Laptop monitor started flickering, sorry that model has been discontiuned and we don't support it anymore. Looking to buy a new one.

I guess my stuff just lasts too long. :D

And ipod is so damn expensive that fullfilling the warranty is nothing to the company.
