bad idea

Benjamin iPaq, an uncharged tale

Apple Computer's new iPaq may come with a few extra, needing to send the unit back to Apple if/when the battery fails, for a swapped out unit that may (or may not) be refurbished and which will not be returned with any of your personal content intact.

And they'll do this for only $99 plus $6.99 shipping.

Neat, eh?

...yeah, now I'm just chompin' at the bit for the opportunity to get screwed like that buy one of those puppies.

No, really -- stop laughing, dammit.

...oh, alright...fine.
