The shrine, and shop, to the almighty Apple in Regent Street, London, has received shed-loads of complaints that the colour screen on the reassuringly expensive machine is not up to scratch because it cracks too easily.
Already a website www.flawedmusicplayer.com has been set up for all those iPod fanatics who want Jobs' Mob to recall the Ipod Nano.
On the site is a disgruntled Apple enthusiast who was careful to keep his nano safe yet after running it only twice the screen showed an off-white rather than its usual beautiful colours.
One guy has claimed the screen cracked just by sitting in the pocket of his ever so baggy jeans. He took out his player to show his friends and discovered that his headphones must have cracked the screen.
Interestingly enough, when people have approached the mighty Apple to get their screens fixed, they have been told that they should buy a new iPod instead.
The official line is that stores will examine requests for returns of damaged players. So far, to the Apple spinsters, total recall is just a movie starring a Californian politician.
