Geek squad people are of the opinion that it bricked because its battery drained to zero, which is a pretty terrible design flaw. I had actually planned on getting it repaired because I really liked it, but I ended up buying a Surface RT instead, so it's just sitting there now.
But yeah, as long as it's working, it's not outdated by any means. It works fast enough, runs games beautifully, it's snappy and responsive, I loved it while it worked. You really can't beat the value at this price.
A method to try and get it back from this as mine has done it a few times when it was drained to zero is charge it for a few hours (even if it doesn't show it is charging) then press and hold the power button and the volume up button, hold for about 5-10 seconds. Attempt this about....o, I'd say, 10 times every hour or so (while still on charger). Mine has always come back. (2nd gen) But I've had to also do the same thing to my moms when she let hers die completely and hers is a 1st gen. Same method too.
I hope this works for you.

No, but it is with an OTC cable (about $1), the app “Nexus Media Importer”, and a flash drive. I also like the app “MX Player” to play movies from the flash drive. Some people do not like the OTC cable, but for movies it works great. You are only limited on the size of your flash drive and the amount of the flash drives for your total capacity.
