I'm so Happy!! a time ago i started a thread asking if i would have any problems (for example the dead pixel thing) after buying the ipot 16 gigs in san fransisco, cause i live in germany. well,.... my baby had a lot of dead pixels and the first thing i did was calling the apple support hotline. they said , that if i want to exchange it, i would have to go to san francisco and exchange it there. but i just wanted to get it fixed, i could send it in to repair. so i did that, and im probably getting a new one anyway, cause you cant fix dead pixels.. can't you?? So... every one who was thinking about buying a nice vacation souvenir...... GO AHEAD!!!!
