    A small amount of water sprayed off of me and onto the screen of my ipod touch 2G . A bit later i hit the home button to bring up the unlock screen and it played a GLADOS sound (a custom sound i set) but it was unusual bc that was not the sound that was supposed to play. then when i tried to unlock it, the scroll bar only dragged about 1/4 of the way accros b4 going back to default. eventually i was able to unlock it but then only about 20% of my screen was responsive. the brightness was also much lower than ever possible by setting the brightness, there was almost no difference between it and when it was locked with nothing on the screen. the sound menu that comes up when a button is pushed started going haywire. i evantually restored it even tho it was jailbroken but everything was still messed up. could this be bc of the water? i don't see how it could seeing there are only 2 small entrances to the inside hardware. if so will it dry out and begin working??? or is it something else??? the app i was last in was facebook so nothing should be wrong about that

    The iPod itself is not watertight. You could try to seal it in a container with rice for a week or so (I would search for "tried and true" (I use that in the loosest sense) methods). However, the damage probably has already be done (considering you already turned it on) and your only hope is to buy a new device or if its cheaper, have Apple repair it.

    Are you talking to me?

    It is very likely you fried the digitizer. If you hadn't pressed the button to turn it on, there wouldn't have been the electrical current to do the damage. At this point, you could try the rice trick, which effectively evaporates any water inside the device, but don't get your hopes up

    Something that will suck up water... You have any silica gel?

    Silica Gel, which comes in a lot of packaging, as PFish said. Also, you can try putting on the dashboard of your car in the sun, or under a lightbulb.

    No guarantees whatsoever.

    That would be fraud (tricking Apple into thinking your iPod hasn't been damaged by water) and is against the law, not to mention the rules of this site.
