According to a streaming video report on CBS5.com, 8-year-old Shea O'Gorman tried to write a letter to Steve Jobs with recommendations on how to make the iPod nano better as part of her 3rd grade class's project in letter-writing. The response she got in the mail from Apple was, as most of us would expect, a form letter from Apple's legal department outlining the company's official policy on (not) accepting unsolicited product ideas
Clearly, the purpose of this policy is to protect the submission-writer as well as Apple from any legal mishaps that may happen if Apple were to ever employ a technology that was similar to the one submitted. However, the whole family had gathered around to read Apple's response to little Shea's letter, and when she read it, she apparently threw the letter up in the air and ran to her room to cry. The girl's mother was outraged at what she considered to be an overly harsh and unwelcoming response from a company that promotes itself as supportive of education. Despite how much many of us would like to make fun of this story, it turns out that because of the coverage that little Shea's plight has received, Apple's legal department called to make an apology and informed CBS5 that they were re-evaluating their policy on response letters to idea submissions from children.
Holy shit, so this soon to be bitch get's a corporative change, while this poor guy who got scammed by an oficial Apple Reseller for more than 2K gets shit...
What a wonderful world:-(
