Last night, I was listening to my 2-month old Touch, which I've treated like a baby (no drops, bangs, etc.). The audio began to crackle, popped, and went totally silent. Now, there's nothing coming out audio wise. I tried restoring, different headphones, etc. etc. The real kicker is that I live 2 hours away from the nearest Apple Store, so now they are making me send it in for repair! NOT happy!!!
