Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
I dropped my video iPod onto a tile floor the other day. I won't bore everyone with my life story, basically it gives me the "sad" icon and makes clicking noises, so I'm pretty sure the hard drive is fucked. It's just out of warranty so I'm wondering if I should pay the $180 to get it fixed or just buy a new one for $300.
Now, I've heard they don't actually fix these things, and if I send it in they'll just replace it with a refurbished unit. Because a refurb would probably be in better condition than mine was even before I broke it, I'm leaning towards that option. Is it true they'll actually replace my scratched-to-hell iPod with one that's basically new? Does anyone have experience with out-of-warranty iPod repairs?
