    i have heard rumors that the 8gb will be discontinued due to the release of the 32gb and the 16gb will the lower model. and possibly price drops? is there any truth to this. should i just wait to see. i might be getting one within 2-3 weeks.

    looks like you can get a 16gb new for around $300 on ebay. i wonder if apple still honors the 1 year warranty on them though.

    waht if theres no proof of purchase like a receipt. i always thought it was when you opened the package and then registered it or something like that

    its 1 year from when it was sold in stores or online, they keep track of it by serial number. so if anything is wrong with the ebay one you should be able to get it fixed for free.

    I just bought an 8 gig off craigslist for $240.

    I already have a new nano, so this was purely to test out webapps i'm writing. I still think that's a decent deal :dunno:

    I just posted my 16GB iPod touch on eBay before Apple decides to slash the prices on the new 'low-end' touch models :) These things sell for ~250 EUROS on ebay here in Europe... that's about 380 US$

    so i got a 16gb from ebay. the user that sold it apparently buys them off amazon.com and then ships to the winning bidder overnight. the receipt was in the box and looks like he lost money from what i paid for it. and i registered it and has warranty till the end of feb 09. so looks like i got a good deal. paid 315 shipped overnight. and i did the 1.1.4 jailbreak and everythign is well.thanks to everyone and their help

    Oh man, I wonder if Apple's legal team has seen this. Got this email today from Geeks.com. If this doesn't deserve a cease and desist I don't know what does. Hell they even try to hint at what it is in the title.
