I received my brand new iPod Touch 5th generation 3 days ago and it is already showing signs of defect. Yesterday when using it, the iPod's screen randomly phased out, slowly dying like the battery had gone out on a gameboy, but I know there was at least half a battery left. The iPod then restarted itself, and once at the apple logo, died in the same way with small lines going horizontally across the logo and fading out. I did a hard reset and it turned back on, this time it stayed on the apple logo and didn't change for probably 10 minutes. I finally restored it on iTunes and it worked for a few hours, then died the exact same way again. My question, can I take my defective iPod to a mac store to get a replacement, or do I need to take it to the Apple retail store (which is a 2 hour drive away). Or could I simply take it to Best Buy? I purchased the iPod originally from the Apple online store. I would also NOT like to send it back in because I use my iPod for texting and need it ASAP, not in a month or two. Long story short, I bought a $300 paperweight. I want my iPod to work. Where can I go to get it fixed.
