Apple (Devices That Will Require Power) Jacks

Did you know Johnny Appleseed was motivated less by an innocent infatuation with fruit and more by an alcohol-fueled scheme to sell cider? It's true! In that regard, we're pretty much exactly like him.

No offense, but I'd rather get a refurb direct from Apple

Because of this:
"Apple Certified Refurbished
We test and certify all Apple refurbished products and include a 1-year warranty.
All refurbished iPad models also include a brand new battery and outer shell.

move along

I would concur, especially since the offical apple refurb is cheaper.

Apple charges tax. So the only up side is the warranty

It's shocking how many people will buy a previously broken or defective electronic device simply because it is an Apple.

I was under the impression there was no such thing as a 8GB 3rd Gen, they were actually 2nd Gen devices that were sold still when the 3rd Gen devices came out.

I have what was marketted as a 3rd Gen 8GB, but it's really 2nd Gen hardware, and stuck at iOS 4.2.1, where most apps require 4.3 to install (even the Chrome browser).

You're right. If you look here: http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1353#iPod_touch_late2009 you will see where they explain the difference between a 3rd generation and a 2nd generation iPod touch. There is no such thing as an 8GB 3rd Generation iPod touch.
