Tonight was the first time in a few weeks that I've taken my iPod Classic out of the pocket in my backpack where it lives when it's not in my iHome. I was taking it out to sync some music and noticed a spot behind the plastic in the screen. Is it water? A spot in the LCD? It was in an outside pocket of my so either is possible. I've had it since 2007 with no issues. The battery was dead but it's syncing with my MacBook Pro just fine now.
