ipod-nano-settlement-01-23-09

You know those lawsuits that you kind of forget about and figure they will never come to anything or will be thrown out of court. Well back during the first generation of the iPod Nano, apparently their was a lawsuit for some pretty pissed off people that just thought the original iPod nano's crappy case was just beyond what would be considered acceptable when it came to how easily it became scratched and scuffed and turned into a really nasty piece of hardware (click image above to see closer example).

Well it seems that not only did they take Apple to court over the crappy case that was later sort of alleviated by including a slip case (admitting they were originally at fault basically). They didn't just take them to court but now apparently they've won a settlement of $22.5 million that will be given out to those who own the old iPod Nano FIRST GENERATION, ya I know we're on what the 4th, 5th. 6th generation now? Basically if you had one of the original Nano's without the slipcase you are eligible for a $25 settlement, if you did get a slipcase your not left out either because you still got jipped and get $15 for your trouble (does that mean the case is somehow worth $10? Of course this is all after the crappy attorney fees and other law related fees.

In the end it all is still subject to the final judge's approval of the settlement that will be heard in court on April 28th. So this may not be a discounted item or a way to make a killing online, it is a way that you might end up getting a bit of extra cash, even if it's only $25.00 in the crappy financial time every dollar counts is my view.
