• Best Buy gives me 3.0 firmware free
    40 replies, posted
I returned my ipod touch with the 2 year warranty and got it replaced, the new one has the $10 3.0 firmware upgrade. Everyone try this now! Best Buy fuck yeah
all the new iPod Touches and iPhones have 3.0 installed... nothing really to get excited about imo. but hey it saved you $10, so I'd say that isn't a bad deal at all.
Who the hell buys those firmware updates?

Or you could think about how much of a rip off it is to be spending money on updates that should be free and just find one of the jailbreaking websites to get the update from.
Yeah. There's no way in hell I'll pay $10 bucks for something like that.
irrelevant, as i got it for free
Yeah, well, nothing is relevant in a thread like this. It's not exactly a discussion thread.
please dont de-rail my thread im off to a shakey start dont want it to get worse
big blue... is irrelevant. after they sold their PC line off to Lenovo.
10$ for a firmware upgrade? What the hell? Another reason I don't buy apple products.
I'd be surprised if you paid for the upgrade, anyway - you don't need an iTMS account to upgrade.
You can just get the update from that site that has all ipod firmwares which I'd link but I'd get banned for warez.

[QUOTE=Prefan;17108579]I doubt its warez, considering the download is from apple themselves.[/QUOTE] True.
[QUOTE=Prefan;17108579]I doubt its warez, considering the download is from apple themselves. [url]http://www.felixbruns.de/iPod/firmware/[/url][/QUOTE] Except linking it to a site that hosts the files is warez
If you cant afford $10 then dont buy it, but dont pirate it either. If you need the update that much it's worth paying for.

It got Skype, camera support, Internet browser, Internet radio, and so much more in free updates. Charging 10 dollars for Copy and Paste and landscape keyboard and whatnot is not valid.
The price is all about the infrastructure required to roll it out, the development and research that went in to development, and the overall costs of the system.

everyone's missing the point
the point is apple sucks
[QUOTE=dgsjk1;17141821]the point is apple sucks[/QUOTE] The point is Microsoft fanboys need to get over the fact that Apple is a decent company, and Microsoft isn't totally perfect. But then again neither is Apple. Why can't we just agree that no company is perfect, there will always be flaws in what a company does.
Apple did not need the money that they generated from the update is the point being made. It was free for iPhone users, they just like to shit on the little guy and charge iPod users.

Replacement warranty is the shit. I got it on my phone and I will get it on stuff like laptops, printers, MP3 players, etc. Also firmware updates shouldn't cost money. I don't give a fuck weather it's Apple or Microsoft, either way firmware for 10 bucks is retarted. You purchased the product so you should be provided bug fixes and support for at least a few years free of charge. It's pretty standard shit.
