Now, many of you will think this is kinda shady, but really it wasn't. Here's what happened: I was walking down 5th avenue listening to my ipod and then the left channel in my left ear goes out. I just happened to be right next to the apple store and i walked in. I registered for the genius bar and waited. When it was my turn i let the guy take a look at the headphone jack. Naturally, it was loose. I asked if i needed to send it out or something and the guy says no, not at all. He walks in the back, grabs a white box, and hands it to me and registers it with apple. I asked him about the nag screen i constantly get and he says "oh i can get rid of that for you." It's at this point i realize him "getting rid of it for me" is actually giving me the app pack for free! So now i have a brand new ipod and the app pack without having to pay a red cent for it. My advice, if you're finding you have any issues at all with the ipod, take it back to the store. I mean ANYTHING, scratched screen, loose headphone jack, it smells funny, whatever. Take it back, and you might just get a free app pack with the ipod if you mention the annoying nag screen.
