    Now, ifans.com is a great website. But there is one major difference.

    Half the threads are on questions/comments/etc.
    Half the threads are on issues.

    Now, there is one paticular issue, called a brick. Sadly there will be noobs that will ask what it means, so i broke it down into a form that you can un-der-stand.


    {Pronounced}
    {Br-ick}
    Brick- A term used by jailbreakers that means, that you have internally, messed up the software in your iPod so much, that it cannot perform its normal functions, so sadly, it is an expensive mass of plastic and metal, hence, it is as useless as a "Brick".

    Symptoms
    iPod Does not Boot
    iPod displays the SWOD (this can be fixed, but if it does not, i guess it falls in this catagory)

    Repair:
    If you cannot boot your iPod, chances are Apple will not be able to fix it. So if it falls in warrranty, and you cant fix it, no matter which method you tried, get it replaced by Apple, and have an excuse ready.

    "Br-ick"? That makes it have two syllables. It's not a br-ick.
