I accidentally dropped my iPod touch down some stairs and now there is a small crack as seen here:

I know it looks like a hair but it is not. I part under the screen is now unresponsive. Is there any easy way to fix it without replacing the screen? Please help, I'm going on vacation soon and I don't think I can last without it.

I've heard a LOT of this on the Leo Laporte broadcast on TWIT and is warning everyone that it's glass and should be treated as such. A few have reported that the cheap cover that Apple gives users to fix the connection problems helps some, but probably not down a flight of stairs.

I don't believe there's a fix at all, and very seldom does the insurance (if bought) covers abuse. If you have insurance, you can probably try and tell them it was just in your pocket and skip the stair story to get it replaced/repaired. Other than that, you're hosed I believe.

hopefully the insurance will cover it,if not you'll have to either buy the part from places like pdaparts,or have someone fix it for you.
