    Hahaha, I had a feeling this would happen.:/ I finally after three years of having my 1G got a new iPod for my birthday, and after initially opening it up and turning it on I noticed it had an extreme sensitivity towards touch, or in this case static electricity, which for the last two weeks(Got it on the 11th) has been elevating in I guess an exponential rate, and today when turn on my iPod I can literally hold my fingers/hand over the screen and the screen reacts to it and literally wigs out. No touch gestures work with it but having my hand over it causes all hell to break loose randomly scrolling clicking apps even to the extent that I went to put in my password and it put in random numbers when my hand wasn't even near it, but it was on a rug.

    Has anybody else had this type of thing happen? (Last time I've personally seen this was when the 2G first came out, lol, never expected it to happen to me, but never expected to get a new iPod.

    Go to the Apple Store, and get a replacement.

    Never heard of this problem before... sounds like a short and you're best off getting it replaced.

    Sounds like a hardware issue. Definitely get it replaced from the Apple Store.

    I only recall seeing it happen to someone else once before but that was long ago. http://www.ifans.com/forums/showthread.php?t=89019

    And I'm going to return it, either sometime Saturday or later on tonight, not sure just yet, it was purchased at Cosco so I have 90 days with it, but I'd rather not wait.

    Get a friend to try and see if the same thing happens. It quite possible that the iPod is fine and it's you that is mutating into some sort of heroes-esque super villain.

    If you don't have a friend to try it, try shooting electricity from your palms at people...if it works then you're a winner!
