Nope, apparently the "Genuis" at the Apple Store made up his mind before
he even UNPACKED THE MACHINE OUT OF THE BOX that any problems were caused
by "tar buildup" (my wife is a smoker, I am not - but she doesn't use the
machine) and were not covered under warranty.

They're going to have someone look at it tomorrow, but from the way he 
wrote up the work order its not going to be covered.

I wrote it up in detail:
