I just went to put an Envy X2[^] and when I go to check out I'm offered a 3 year accidental warranty for ~$2. I've played around with it a few times and it seems to be limited to this specific model with offered prices ranging from $1.94-2.18 and via either Canopy or Square Trade. The prices listed for all of both other brands warranties are at more reasonable levels.
I'm wondering if it's some sort of weird promotion or a bug. In the latter case does anyone know how Amazon will respond when I tell them that for $125ish I don't want it after all?
Did you ever see history portrayed as an old man with a wise brow and pulseless heart, waging all things in the balance of reason?
Is not rather the genius of history like an eternal, imploring maiden, full of fire, with a burning heart and flaming soul, humanly warm and humanly beautiful?
