    2G iPod touch
    Right now I've got a 1st gen iPod touch that I've had since last christmas. Recently, the screen cracked (the glass screen, not the internal) and while it is still usable, it doesnt look pretty. Also, it recently got very wet and now has something wrong with the LED (i assume) screen with discoloring. I've looked into buying a new screen and fixing it myself, but the question is that if it works will it be worth the $50 or so it will cost and possibly messing it up some, or should i just buy an ipod 2nd gen? Or should i just like wait it out for a third ipod touch because, knowing apple, im afraid ill buy the 2nd gen and then itll become obselete!

    So, try and repair 1yr old first gen 16gb, buy a 2nd gen 16gb, or just try and wait??????

    any advice?

    But what happens when you buy the 3rd gen version and then they come out with the 4th gen? My point is not to worry. It'll be another year before a new touch comes out so just buy the 2g and be happy with it. No matter what you buy it'll be outdated in no time anyway.

    Even if the 3rd Gen comes out, the 2g wont be obsolete. 1g aren't obsolete now.

    And yeah, sell it to me for 50 bucks and I'll buy it.

    LOL yeah. 50 bucks and I'll take it. You can buy a replacment screen and display elyk. you can even find step by step guide by googling. But if you want to sell it, just yell.
