Apple nixes off-shore support in India

Great news if true - I have had to deal with Apple 'support' in India three or four times and they were appalling each time -

"Your power supply is not working but we won't repair it as it might not be a hardware problem"

"You'll need to buy AppleCare if you want us to repair your Powerbook, would you like to buy AppleCare?" "No, I don't need AppleCare" "You need to buy AppleCare if you want Apple to fix your computer" "Do you mean that you're refusing to repair my machine even though it's under warranty?" "Oh."

They can't cope if you don't follow their script and frankly it's clear that they don't care if they can't/won't help with your problem.
