Or you can do nothing and wait for the tiny checks to (maybe) roll in

More likely a 50 cent credit in the iTunes store.

GentDirkly: I bought a first generation Nano. First Apple product I'd ever purchased new. The screen broke after about 3 months of use. I just threw the thing away and said "Never again, Apple". Wish I'd kept it because they're finally (5 years later) doing free exchanges for those POS's.


"I paid $200 for a brand new product with a 1-year warranty. Something went wrong with it after 3 months, so I threw it away."

Our 2007 something iPod was stolen from our unlocked car last year. At first I was sad. But then I realized I could uninstall iTunes permanently, and I was once again happy.

vodka: I farking HATE that class action lawsuits can throw you into a suit without you doing anything at all. Then very often you don't even know you're in it because the only contact they make is via some old email address or old physical address . Even if they get the right address there is no guarantee you actually got it because they don't serve the documentation in a legally provable way.

If you're in a class action it completely blocks you from ever personally bringing suit for damages or whatever. What a farking scam.


You would probably have a case if you can show you didn't receive notice. Also DON'T cash the check they send you.

Kar98: So, what's the issue then? As long as I can add content from any source to iTunes, I'm good.


Because if your OS isn't supported by iTunes, you are screwed. Using Linux, I can't update my daughter's stupid iPod that her lame ass Grandfather bought for her. I won't install iTunes just to put music on the stupid thing.

Ideally, the court should force Apple to open up the changes they made to this generation of iPods so that 3rd parties could make apps for installing music on the stupid thing.

It really is unfortunate how tied into iTunes that ipods/iphones/etc are.

I used to have an iPod Classic but iTunes was so damn slow, bloated, and generally worthless that I just gave up with it.

I'd really like to buy an iPhone, but instead went with an Android solely for the reason of not wanting to deal with iTunes again. I can't be the only one.
