Question about Apple iPod touch
Your fu.k.d cause Apple won't replace units damaged by water. Wipe as much of the water off as you can and don't use a blow dryer cause that will fry the circuits. Go to the store and get you a bottle of alcohol. No, I'm not talking about the 3 wise men. Isopropyl 80 or 90% is what you require. Fill up a container with the alcohol and throw the ipod in and let it soak for 5-10 minutes max. Then take the thing out and dry off the thing and let it sit to air dry for about an hour or two. Before you ask, "Man, what you been smokin?" Note that alcohol rapidly dissipates and will remove the majority of water that is inside the ipod. Then fill a zip lock bag full of white uncooked rice and I'm not talking Uncle Bens or Minute rice. You gots ta use the real sh.t Asians are eating all the time. Before you ask, "Man, what you been drinkin? Note that restaurants put rice in their salt shakers to remove moisture. Let the ipod sit in the zip lock bag for a week so the rice can do its thing. Then take the ipod out and see if its alive. If you still are unhappy with the results, then go on you tube and seek the advice of a shady hispanic guy who will show you how to beat the system and have Apple give you a brand spankin new ipod.

Also Apple know if your iPod/iPhone has been water damaged by a water damage indicator.
If you look into the bottom of the headphone socket (you might need a light) you will either see a white or red indicator.
Red means water damaged and Apple won't replace it
White is ok, and you will get it replaced ;-)

The touch screen is not physically attached to the screen, if water was anywhere near the bottom of the ipod it may have triggered the water damage unit inside the bottom. Water also may have leaked into the unit frying the circuits. You'll have to visit an Apple store or Apple.com/support for repair.
