Can anyone help me with a little advice?
1. My daughter's 32 GB iPod touch, which I bought last December, is not working, and she thinks it's the battery. I read somewhere online that iPod batteries have a one-year warranty. Does anyone know if that's true? Also, if I take it to the Apple store, do I need the receipt, or will they just look it up? (If they look it up, will they use the manufacture date, which I assume they get from the serial number, rather than the sales date, to see if it's still under warranty?)
2. My wife wants to get a computer for Christmas - I'm thinking either a netbook, cheap laptop (maybe a PC like Toshiba) or an iPad. She would use it mainly at home for the Internet, especially watching videos/movies, and Skyping her family, and possibly reading e-books, although she's not used to the "e" part when it comes to books. (We are a more or less 21st century family technologically, with an iMac, a Macbook Pro, and several iPods). My concern is, however, that when it comes to touchscreens (neither my wife nor I have smartphones), we're more like the Flinstones ("a modern stone-age family"). I'm not sure how comfortable she would be with a touchscreen interface. Any suggestions any which model would be adequate would be appreciated too, price is a factor these days. I wonder if the new Kindle will put a little pressure on iPad prices - sooner or later?
