This is an excerpt from a CBC broadcast this year. It does make the Apple Genius Bar look very greedy. I'm sure that not every repair can be done for free in 5 minutes but it does show you that it's a good idea to know something about the internal workings of any Apple product you own. If your Mac or iPhone is out of warranty, you can be "taken to the cleaners" by Apple's genius bar in their retail stores. It's a similar situation with car dealerships that do repairs, if you don't know what parts cost or the basics of auto repair, they can really run up the repair bills.
