Question about Apple iPod touch
Most important thing...
DO NOT TRY TO TURN IT ON!!!
This can short circuit the ipod!
Make sure it is off! Your lucky because the iPod hasn't shorted yet Don't switch it on again!
I will teach you what to do...
You must remove the water from the iPod
Firstly Be sure that the iPod is off...
Now your going to have to open the iPod
This video will teach you how to open your iPod touch 2nd Gen
How to open iPod 3rd Gen
Now clean out all the water. You can use a hair dryer to do this... But make sure that the hair dryer is blowing out COLD air
Leave your iPod open for a while to dey out the remaining water Now put the iPod back together
Leave it for an hour or so Switch it on...
There is another way...
This way is easier and has worked for many people
First fill the headphone jack (where you plug in the ear phones) with WhiteOut (yes WhiteOut!!!).
Leave it for an hour or so Use Nail polish remover on a cotton bud to remove all of the WhiteOut. Let it dry before turning the iPod on. Enjoy!!!

I would stick it in a bowl of rice for a few weeks then test to see if it's working.
Another thing you could do if you still have your warranty, ring up the place that you bought your iPod touch and see if they can replace it.
You might loose all your music and games, but atleast you'll have a nice new shiny iPod Touch. :)
Also do what kniland said and visit that website and look through and see if you can find the problem. :D
