At long last, Apple is prepared to help owners of dead iBooks return their kit to the land of the living.

Apple yesterday kicked off an iBook logic board repair program after a flood of complaints hit the Web. Apple will fix the ailing iBooks - manufactured between May 2002 and April 2003 - at no cost. This fix will no doubt add to quality control costs that have hurt Apple's bottom line.
