just an update - went to the Apple Store at Glatt Zentrum today (mental note: next time make an appointment at the Genius bar
Got a "new" iPod Touch 4 gen. 8 gb for 109 CHF to replace the broken screen one, I assume it is a refurbished one? I thought it would be a little bit more expensive, so I was happy for that. OH thought it's a waste and I should just buy a new one. Except clever Apple no longer has the 8 gb ones, even from gen. 4, so you have to buy at least a 16 gb one for 239 CHF. Anyways, lessons have been learned, hope not to be repeated!
