Honest there is an ipod in that pic ;)
Just been reading about Ipod Restore, A New venture in the Us that will fix you broken ipod do upgrades and other technical stuff like hard drive upgrades. Best of all they operate world wide, you can just pop you ipod in the post and they will give you quote if you don't like it they will send it back for free.
For those of you who care for your iPod more than your own liver, TechRestore has launched their iPodRestore program. For $29, you can select the Full-Restore plan and wait as a specially designed box is sent your way for you to ship your iPod in. It includes overnight shipping both ways, and an estimate. Theres also the Self-Restore option if you know how to work a roll of packaging tape for only $10, but you have to supply your own materials. After they receive your iPod, a technician will contact you within 24 hours with a diagnosis and repair price. You can elect to have them fix your Pod or send it back at no additional cost. They specialize in battery upgrades, screen replacement and audio jack repair, so this may be the perfect solution if your iPod is beginning to show its age but dont want to drop $300 on a new unit. (They also offer hard drive upgrades.)
