Canadian iPod Owners Get $44 Each For Crappy Battery Life (Thanks, Budday!)

Illustration for article titled Canadian iPod Owners Get $44 Each For Crappy Battery Life (Thanks, Budday!)

I love when life imitates art. A few weeks after a South Park episode where indignant Canadians go on strike and are rewarded with Bennigan's coupons, indignant Canadian iPod owners go to court and win roughly the equivalent of a meal at Bennigan's: $44. Why? Because the 1G, 2G and 3G iPods that were supposed to have battery life of up to 8 hours instead delivered a paltry 3 hours, according to two separate rulings in Canadian court. Still up for settlement: the lawsuit by the Canadian gentleman who discovered that his 8GB nano only has 7.45GB of storage. He wants $220, but he'll take $92. [InformationWeek]

Did this Canadian gentleman sue the manufacturer of the computer he used to sync up his iPod? He should, because they ripped him off with their hokey formatting that screws us consumers. Flappy-headed crazy people they is.
