    I guy at work offered to sell a 16 GB 2nd gen touch to me for around 200.00 I currently have 1st gen 8gb that I dropped in water. It still works though. Now, I have been reading these posts that say wait until the new ones are released, what do you think? Should I try to get his price down further or just wait?

    If it were me, I'd buy it. If it's in a good condition.

    if you're considering a new ipod, wait until next month
    the WWDC is happening sometime around the 10-12th (i think) during which they'll release new models
    i have a 1g and its starting to show its age, so i'm definitely picking up a new one when they're released

    Well, it depends on what the current advantages of jailbreaking are currently. I jailbroke my current one quite a while ago.. but went to official firmware after some program screwed it up. I've dabbled in the official apps store. And I haven't been up to speed on what is out there as far as applications and so forth.

    I'v read online they may release something in September... might be worth holding out until then, + the 2g will drop further in price right?
