At Portugal you can claim the warranty from the Seller or the Manufacturer at your choice. The warranty period is for AT LEAST 2 years, or anytime later if you can prove it was a manufacturer defect (basically impossible except if it is a class issue). Apple did give me some trouble back in 2009 to repair a MBP battery with about 18 months and I asked them nicely to fuck off. They replaced it after a few days.

I returned an Iphone 3G in this spirit. "I don't know any other phone were I can't resent or forward a text message".

Give a receipt to all voters with: voterID random-challenge hash(voterID, random-challenge, vote option) Then create a online list with all the population hashs ordered by vote option. Only who knows the random-challenge can check that the vote was indeed accouted for that "vote option". Should I start run to go patent this? :P
