I got two claim forms from the “Apple Adapter Settlement Claims Administrator” (my wife got one, so three between us). It says Apple owes us $35 each for the faulty power adapters that came with various iBooks and Powerbooks we have.
I vaguely remember getting a replacement adapter for free from Apple, but that was way back in 2002. I think this is the same case because it keeps talking about the black brick adapter. That must have been the one that came with my Pismo Powerbook.
Now it’s 2005 and the Claims Administrator wants to know all about which Powerbook I have, when I bought it, which adapter I had with it, if I purchased a new one, and so on. I really don’t know the answers to any of these questions. My Pismo, for instance, surely is from the late 1990s sometime.
I don’t really mind not getting 3 times $35, but the thought of some lawyer keeping it because I didn’t claim it is a bit annoying.
