    great news

    Wow, they're right on time! Lots of money to be made here. And, best of all, Apple's extended warranty is really not required anymore - it's worth the risk when you can get it repaired/battery replaced at this price. Nice.

    ripe

    RIpe was started by one dumbass and now others are starting to say it even though they don't have any idea what it means. I don't even know what it means. Its like one person's own inside joke that they moronically decided to annoy the h*** out of everybody with.

    Warranty

    The extended warranty is still a good deal. What's above is a repair service, nothing more. They require a $29 fee to look at the iPod and then will charge you more depending upon what's broken. As they say on their site, they don't know what the cost could be because it could be $10 or $99 depending upon the part. The initial $29 is non refundable. This service could be useful if you blantaly damage or drop your iPod, such things are never covered under any manufacturers warranty.

    Also, the above service doesn't claim to use Apple authorized parts or anything like that. Couldn't find if it was even an Apple Authorized Service Provider.

    The $59 for iPod AppleCare is still a sound investment for those who take care of their iPod and are concerned about battery life, harddrive, or the lcd.
