Household queen Martha Stewart complained on Twitter that her Apple iPad cracked after if fell on the ground and that Apple hadn't sent a technician to her house to fix her iPad's broken screen, according to a Sept 27 report in MailOnline. The TV personality, a well-known tech lover, vented to her 2.9 million Twitter followers that her iPad now had two shattered glass corners.
In a series of tweets on Thursday, Stewart said that she was still waiting for an Apple tech to come pick up her iPad and was frustrated that a Apple rep hadn't done so. A day earlier she dropped the iPad that Apple's co-founder, Steve Jobs, gave her—and she tweeted her thoughts about what she should do. Should she wait for Apple to pick up her iPad or should she bring her iPad to Apple? Why hadn't Apple responded to her tweets?
After her Twitter rant quickly went viral, Mrs. Stewart found herself the butt of jokes—many making fun of her thinking that Apple would sent someone to pick up her shattered iPad. When a customer breaks an iPad (or iPhone or iPod touch) the procedure is to bring the iPad to an Apple store where a tech will either fix the iPad or exchange it, according to the Apple warranty.
Sensing that her hissy fit was turning into a public relations disaster, Stewart backtracked and insisted that she was joking all along, but it didn't seem like it.
But the big question is, should Mrs. Stewart get her iPad repaired at all? Rumor is that Apple is going to unveil its new iPads sometime in October. If she does get the new iPad, it might be a good idea that she put her new iPad in a protective case.
