Subject:Cheap iPod Touch?
Time:11:46 pm
Dear lazyweb:

I find myself in need of an iPod touch. I don't especially want one, but I sort of need it. Because of that, I want to spend as little money as possible on it. I don't care if it's 1G or 2G, and 8GB is pefectly fine with me.

What's the best possible way to accomplish this? Anyone know where there's a secret stash of dirt cheap iPods?

I haven't ebayed them to see if the prices are much better than retail or something but maybe there?

Any of the cardrooms have them in exchange for points? lol

The PokerStars store has a 32GB one, but it costs like $600 worth of points.

insanity!

Unless you don't plan to use your points for anything, but dang.

I looked up "refurbished" in the search engine. Not sure if that is of interest but here is a link. HTH.

Sorry for spamming. I also found this through CNet.com.

Oh, you're not spamming. And yes, I absolutely use my points for something. The apple outlet currently has refurbished 8GB 1G Touches for $179, which is probably the best I'll do unless someone wants to sell me their used one.

I have one - you've given me lots of things in the past in exchange for a charity donation - so I can do the same here. Shall I send it to you (I am not sure I will be able to find the headphones, the charger, or the manual but manual I believe is also online, the charger can be ordered online, same with headphones.)

If you aren't using it, that would be lovely. I don't need headphones, because I only intend to use it for a backgammon client, and I'm happy to pick up a charger.

Sooner is better than later... I want to work with the guy who wrote the iPhone client for FIBS so that we can make the experience suck less for everyone. It's not "oh my god, if I don't have this tomorrow the world will burn down", but phone users are making a mess of the server and I want to try to address the issues.

BTW I forget the specs. I am still in Dallas but I THINK I bought the 8gig when I bought it. I can leave my stuff on it or reset it all - up to you.

Advise against ipod/itunes/drm. Madness that way lies.

I don't intend to use it like an iPod. Someone has written an iPhone client to play backgammon on my server. This is causing all sorts of havoc, and I want to be able to run the client and evaluate it so that I can work with the developer on making the experience better.

I hate iTunes with the fury of a thousand white-hot suns, and I have religious objections to DRM. Hence my need-but-not-want situation.
