    Why don't you jailbreak it and sell it? As long as the buyers are reasonable, it shouldn't be that bad.

    Is jailbroke.
    I just want the new fancy one with volume buttons and speakers.
    This is such bullshit.
    I hate apple.

    Its a 32 gigabyte one too, so any sales under 425 dollars (so I can buy a new one, and pay for their S+H) I won't do.

    Then you're stuck, since you're not going to get that much for it.

    Maybe next time you won't make the same stupid mistake.

    Hehe [​IMG]

    Wait until wherever you bought it from stocks the new iPod Touch and then take it back for refund.

    Or listen to Urza. He's always right.

    I truly hope that you do break it, and it comes back to bite you in the ass and all you wind up with is a broken iPod.

    That's why he would buy a Zune. The superior Mp3 player. Prove me wrong.

    This is why I stopped buying apple products. Either they don't last long enough and need to be replaced (both of my ipods are semi-functioning) or they release 'updated' versions so often that superfans just open their wallets for the newest toy. Boo on you Steve.

    Agree w/ blueskies.
    And FYI, Ipod >>> zune. The itouch is an amazing piece of hardware, and I love it. I just wish it had a speaker.
    Carpz, next time I'll pay attention to the news and make sure I don't buy right before an event >_>
    If no one is willing to buy for a decent price i'll figure out some new scheme to return it.
    I got it at the apple store, with the "get one for college with a new comp. deal >_>
    I'm thinking if my mom complains enough they may decide to exchange anyway -maybe if she pulls the "I need the speaker function for my class" card.

    Okay.

    The Zune is another Microsoft entry to a market where nobody requested their presence, and only after some other company has established it: by innovating all the ideas, finding an audience, raising awareness, advertising+hyping it, and fine tuning the product over multiple iterations based upon customer feedback and analysis. Then along comes MS, rips off all the ideas and claims them as their own, sticking users with inferior product and/or software, leading to a shoddy end experience under the MS branding which detours from where the inventions were headed and generally just raises more anti MS ire and pisses people off so that ultimately you get some douchebag on a random internet forum saying "Zune is the superior mp3 player, prove me wrong". How am I doing so far?

    Well, off the top of my head, the iPod Touch has...

    Less weight
    superior controls
    a larger screen
    a smaller form factor
    a keyboard
    a much more powerful processor
    a web browser
    decent games
    all the major IM clients
    IRC clients
    a fully featured calendar app
    VNC clients
    RDP clients
    PDF/Word/Powerpoint/Palm/Excel/txt/etc viewers
    Fully-featured ebook readers
    RSS clients
    File system browsers
    An SSH client
    An SSH server
    Theme support
    An email client
    A usable scientific calculator
    Text editors
    A YouTube viewer and downloader
    Remotes for iTunes, Winamp, and foobar
    etc

    EDIT: Granted, the iTouch is not the end all be all device, as there are many other devices that offer much of this functionality. My point is that the Zune is a trendy piece of shit compared to anything useful.
