Help! My iPod won't play...

Mysteriously my iPod started working again just before my Europe trip, so I charged it up, and took it with, and it was a great companion on the train and airplane rides.

But now I'm back in the USA and it isn't working again. Sigh.

I click on all the buttons, and nothing happens. It just sits there. But there's this weird symbol on the screen. Here's a picture. The symbol is circled in red.

What does it mean? Any clues on how to reset the thing?

WiFi in cell phones?

What does it mean when they say a cellphone comes with WiFi? Is it a VOIP phone? Or does it appear on the network as a shared hard disk so you can edit your address book on a PC? They never seem to say what features are made possible by WiFi support.
