    Okay, so basically this morning i woke up to an immense amount of heat spewing from my iT. I Didn't now what the hell to do so i tried to unplug it but it was to f***ing hot to touch. (Ironic huh... cant "touch" my iPod "touch") So finally after i got it unplugged from the charger after burning myself a couple of times i found some burn marks on the screen and it was a LOT dimmer than usual. I did a restore to see if it was just some software issue. But low and behold it isn't! Under the glass is burnt. What do i do now?

    Here's what it looks like... sorry for the bad images

    Yeah I mean it's not your fault that there is an issue with your touch. You should be able to just bring it back to the store and return it. This makes me think twice of charging mine over night!!

    Guys, I don't think there is a reason to worry about charging your iPod overnight. xD
    I think it was just an issue with his personal ipod, iPods are meant to be charged for long periods of time (I think, anyways).

    I'm sure Apple wouldn't take into consideration people leaving theirs plugged in over night, while designing it.

    and yea, they pretty much have to take it back.
