RIP nexus 7

Pulled my nexus 7 out of my gym bag and opened the cover to find the screen festooned with a thick spiderweb of cracks.  The screen lights up with no flaws in the image, but the touch response is gone.  I can’t even acknowledge the “OK” to power it off.

The gym bag was just clothes and notebooks, but it was in a place where other people could dump stuff on it.  Someone must have hit it hard, or sat on it, or something.

A quick search indicates that there isn’t really a cost-effective way to repair it; has anyone used an old 8G model as a source of spare parts?
