Defective parts! WallStreet? More like Skid Row
The PowerBook G3 Series corrective action campaign

by Kenneth Ott, Kevin Barry & others
This campaign ends the day Apple agrees to repair all of our defective WallStreet PowerBook hinges and AC ports for free. Or at this late date, with a Titanium upgrade offer. Other models will be included if evidence of bad design surfaces. Some of us want to pursue a class-action ...

Broken hinges ("clutches") and snapped AC/sound ports after 12 to 24 months of moderate usage are not ordinary or acceptable to us. Defective engineering and no support from the mother ship.
