Scam spams

Has anyone noticed that bank account scam emails have gotten shorter and shorter? It used to be like,

“Dear Honorable Sir JEFFREY FADEN, Esq.,

[insert 5 paragraphs here jam-packed with courtesy and serious business]

$6 MILLION DOLLARS USD CASH $$$

[5 more paragraphs of being really kind and shit]

Love,
Completely Serious Name, Ngudukubuntulinux, Africa.”

Now it’s just like “HELLO SIR I HAVE $6 MILLION DO YOU WANT SOME? GIVE ME YOUR BANK ACCOUNT THANKS”

Some people just have no manners.

FYI, I got that humor test 11 times on my friends page after I posted it. :P

EDITSAUCE: GEEZ GUYS IT’S NOT LIKE I’M TAKING CREDIT FOR IT GEEZ

Uh oh, warranty about to expire.

I’ve owned an iPod for almost a year now, and my warranty’s about to expire. I didn’t buy AppleCare back when I registered it, but since then I have sent it back for a replacement since the hard drive stopped working… shipping cost $30 since I didn’t have AppleCare, which costs $60, so it was a good deal.

Now – I’m not 100% pleased with my iPod. It does what I want it to do and its playlist management is astounding, but that’s all iTunes features – I’d really rather have an MP3 player like a Zen or whatever… egh, I don’t know though. I’m not sure whether it’s worth $60 to extend my warranty (for only a year), or just keep the iPod until it breaks and then get a new MP3 player, for something like $300. I can’t be sure how long my iPod is going to last (and given what people have said about its battery, it just might not last that long).

I’m leaning towards spending the $60 and guaranteeing its life for at least another year, and then much later decide what I’ll do… do you, faithful readers, have any other insight?

edit: Bought the protection plan for $47. Hooray student discount.
