iphone problems

Ohh the iphone. i love this thing, but then this weekend - 5 days after the warranty expired... it stopped working. I went to research my problem, and while not widespread, it sounds at least not uncommon. Basically, the middle third of my screen no longer works. HELP - Apple, if you are reading this - I'd love a new one shipped to me!

Ironically, this is the second apple device to crap out on me about 1 year in. My eMac did the same thing.
