This is probably the dumbest and most idiotic question out there, but I'm curious. I have an 8GB iPod touch. I've had it for about 3. It's running the latest software (that can be downloaded) The wifi receiver is starting to go bad. I use it almost everyday. I ALWAYS use it till it goes dead. Sometimes it's at 30% and I run it down to 0, sometimes it's a full charge. It gets fairly hot when I charge it. I am very hard on the battery, I believe. It has been dropped on concrete, it has been sanded down, it has been dropped on my carpet floor tens of times. Most of the time it gets flung against my headboard or wall and goes down to the floor. I have it hidden under my pillow. And I has woken me up a few times when in the middle of night I throw it against the wall and to the floor. Has anyone's iPod actually died and can anyone tell me how much longer it can last?
