    Apple Confusion.

    I'm confused. Okay. Today I bought a third generation iPod touch for 299$. Then my friend tells me today that in 3 monthes apple will release an iPod Touch with a camera. Then I research and I can't find anything about that assumption, so should I return my third generation, and HOPE that the iPod Touch with a camera comes out within 3 monthes, or assume that it doesn't. Im confused -.-

    Don't return it. Do you really need an MP3 player with a shoddy 3 megapixel camera? Save up some more money and buy yourself a snapshot camera by a real photography company - you should be able to get something better from Nikon or Canon for under $150. I can understand the appeal of having an all-in-one device, but Apple rumors are just totally out of control these days; you shouldn't let them influence your spending decisions.
    As someone with a iPhone 3G, I can tell you that the camera is nothing to get too excited about. If I really needed to take pictures of something, I would bring my six-year-old HP point-and-shoot.
    Buy an AppleCare plan or the product replacement service from Best Buy. (Last I checked, you don't even have to buy it from Best Buy, so long as they carry the product.) If a new one comes out that you really want more, break your old one and send it in for replacement. It's terribly wasteful and more than a little unscrupulous, but the costs are all worked out to where Apple and Best Buy still make money even if you're hopelessly exploitative.

    There was rumor of a camera coming to the touch. On Sept 9th Apple released their new generation of ipods. The nano will be getting the camera, the touch will not. The touch will get a price drop, that's all.
    The 3.2 megapixel is NOTHING to get excited over. Now my question is why people get all goo goo gaa gaa over the latest Apple releases. I've bought an ipod (nano) and I know I will never ever buy Apple ever again. Shotty quality and customer service with a hefty price tag all for lack of user control. And no my ipod hasnt broken and I havent had to deal with customer service, BUT all my roomates have and I've witnessed it all. From their macs to the touch, Apple just likes to over price everything and tell people it's not covered by the warranty.

    Halt, you should still be able to buy the apple care plan through apple. I think you have like 30 days form purchase but you might want to call them to ask. I would not recommend buying the replacement plan through Best Buy, they have that set up to screw you over royally if you actually try to make a claim against.
    French, I have had nothing but amazing customer service from Apple both on my Ipod and on MacBook. They replaced parts that were defective/broke too early on both my ipod and my MacBook with no hassle what so ever. I would definately buy apple products over anything else out there based on the customer service I have gotten from them.

    To each his own I guess. When I had a problem with my HP laptop overheating, HP promptly replaced my laptop with free upgrades. They sent me a new laptop with an extra Gb in Ram and extra 120 Gb in HD space. I am glad that at least some people have had better luck with them and they stand by their insurance plan in some cases. It just didnt happen to be the case for my roomates.

    We've received great service from Apple too, but there's an Apple store 4 miles from here, which makes it a lot easier. I wouldn't go to Best Buy even if they gave stuff away because I'd figure they were still cheating people somehow.

    French, I had the exact opposite experience with HP. My laptop motherboard when out after 8 months the first time, and because it was over heating still 9 months after the first replacement, and then it was out of warranty so I would have had to pay to get it repaired. Plus when the sent me the laptop back the first time they re-assembled it wrong and didnt even put the plastic flap that covers the hard drive back on, it was laying in the bottom of the box. So I went out and bought a Mac and have loved it ever since. I guess HP customer service is a flip of the coin and I always got the rotten end of that deal.
