"stand behind their products"? seriously?

Where did Apple EVER tell you that the ipods were drop-resistant? How is it their fault if you mishandle something? If the device just stopped working fine... but it broke after it was DROPPED.
If you drive your car into a wall ... is it the manufacturer's fault that the repairs are so expensive? No. It's the driver's fault for driving into a wall.
Likewise this is where a child is taught to be careful with her expensive gifts.
Or where you learn about using protective coverings and perhaps extra warranties - especially for expensive items given to a child.
Or... think of it like your car insurance. Can you get your car insured for an accident AFTER the crash? Hell no. The insurance company will deny the claim.
This is why you insure your items before mishandling them.
