I was deciding between the new Sony Walkman coming out, the Zune or an Ipod Touch. The Sony Walkman was on the top of my list...but, it seems my credit on Amazon would expire before it comes out. So I am going to get the Ipod Touch 32 gig with free 1gig Shuffle for $359. Not a bad deal I suppose...wish it came with better headphones though. Anyways, I was curious about Applecare...is it worth it? I woldn't want a refurbished product if something was to go wrong with it. And do I have to purchase it right away with my product? ...and how do you register the product with Applecare? Whats required? and last but not least..what is the expected life expectancy of the battery on the ipod touch? and when are the second gen ipod touchs arriving?
