So I've been thinking about getting AppleCare for my 12'' iBook G4 (1.33GHz). While I was reading the small print, I noticed this in the terms and conditions:

e. Limitations.The Plan does not cover:
Damage to the Covered Equipment caused by accident, abuse, neglect, misuse (including faulty installation, repair, or
maintenance by anyone other than Apple or an Apple Authorized Service Provider), unauthorized modification, extreme
environment (including extreme temperature or humidity), extreme physical or electrical stress or interference, fluctuation
or surges of electrical power, lightning, static electricity, fire, acts of God or other external causes;

Wth? acts of God? lol, well thats just too bad. Anyways, i found it sortof humorous, thought i'd share.
BTW, is the AppleCare really worth the $300? (CDN)

I bet someone tried to sue them because their computer was destroyed by what they called an act of god.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Act_of_God
Quote:
Act of God is a common legal term for events outside of human control, such as sudden floods or other natural disasters, for which no one can be held responsible. This does not protect those who put others in danger of acts of God through negligence, such as a camp counselor who instructs a group of children on a hike to stand under a tree to escape a lightning storm.
Every warranty contract I've ever read (all both of them!) mentions "Acts of God."

Yea acts of god is very common in contracts. I booked concerts at my school last year and every contract (even for cheap bar bands) had the acts of god clauses in them

It's a blanket term covering natural disasters. I don't think there is any obligation on either party to prove or disprove the existence or involvement of a deity.

On a similar note one of my all time favourites is packs of peanuts which say on the back 'This product may contain nuts'. You don't say !!
