    Ya... meaning two years from the original purchase date...

    And to answer your other question: The AppleCare Protection Plan can be purchased only while your iPod is still covered under the standard one-year limited warranty. (From Apple)

    I don't want to talk you out of it, but one extra year for $59? Seems too expensive...
    What I would do is save the $59, and use it towards buying a new model in 1 or 2 years from now when they have a new iPod that your going to wanna buy...

    However, an iPod touch battery replacement costs $74 so if your planning on replacing the battery... it might be worth it. But beware that it's subject to Apple's approval that the battery can hold less than 50% of the original...

    applecare does not cover accidental. so in my opinion not worth it for the touch. if it breaks and its your fault they still say too bad. if you got it from best buy i would try and get their accidental instead. if its possible.
