    STAY AWAY FROM THE APPLE IPOD TOUCH My son received an IPOD touch as a gift from his grandparents. It failed in less than two months. We purchased the extended warranty thinking we were safe from this type of loss. We took it back to the Apple store in Syracuse and were told the sensor in the headphone opening was tripped (turned pink), meaning the unit had water damage. My son walked home from the bus in a snowstorm carrying his IPOD in his front pants pocket the day his IPOD failed. This is the only moisture that came into contact with this unit. The real message from Apple is DO NOT TAKE THIS UNIT OUTSIDE. THIS IS A SENSITIVE ELECTRONIC DEVICE THAT WILL FAIL COMING INTO CONTACT WITH MOISTURE. Unbelievable!! Apple developed a clever way not to cover warranty claims. There is definitely a dark side to all of the Apple Glitz

    i appreciate your anger, and the useful tip, but no need to completely diss the Touch to others just because it failed you.

    Im sure MANY electronics will fail when they come in contact with moisture. And you should have checked that little "moisture sensor" before you tried to return it.

    Well, I understand you are angry, but think of this: The iPod Touch may have failed you, but millions of people LOVE it. So there is absolutely no reason to tell us it's not good.
