I had a leaky container in my bag the other day, and I found my iPod with sticky plum juice all over it, even seeping out of the seems around the click wheel. Devastated! Especially since it seems like this product line is at the end of the line. The little guy won't start up at all anymore, no response at all since I found it in this state. Any advice? I was having a look at opening it up to let it dry out, but ifixit leaves me to believe that opening this gen of iPod is no trivial matter. Meanwhile, I have my old 5G iPod video (only 30GB). Just opened that one up (relative piece of cake) to give it a fresh battery, should tide me over for a while, but I'm gonna miss having all my music with me. More importantly, I'm gonna waste tons of time deciding which of my music to keep on me!
