This is my response towards those that defraud Apple. This includes intentionally "breaking" your iPod touch, to receive a new or refurbished device in it's place. Defrauding Apple (or anyone), also known as scamming, the last time I checked is illegal. This includes those that are attempting to intentionally cause fault with their 1G iPod touch in order to have the potential at scoring themselves a brand new, shiny 2G iPod touch. Yes, we may go against Apple including jailbreaking, although defrauding Apple is in a whole different ball park. Jailbreaking does not hurt Apple financially, nor is it illegal. In fact, jailbreaking has most likely sent a spike in iPod touch sales, as the "walls" initially set on the device by Apple were knocked down, leading to so much potential on such a small device (that's big selling features were Safari mobile browsing, and the first Wi-Fi accessable iTunes Store, amongst others). After all, Apple is a company. And to many of us, the caliber of their products and software that they produce is appreciated - plus gives us a hobby that we can all follow as a community. Yet, the line needs to be lay down between what is acceptable and what is not. And defrauding Apple is certainly across the line, that has a post-it note attached labeled "do not cross". Yet, there will always be those that cross that line, and that is solely your decision. I am not saying that if you defraud Apple, we will see the company's stocks rapidly fall downwards. But I am also not saying that this will have no long-term effects on Apple, because it's possible. That said, it's in your hands whether or not you take the danger of crossing the line that clearly says "do not cross". That may just be a metaphor, but if you want to see Apple continue in growth as a leading company in the electronic world, think before you act.
