plastic, metal.

on a larger scale, you could say that an iPod is made out of materials, some man-made

but just out of curiosity, whats the urgency?

It's made of snips and snails and puppy dog tails.

Except the pink mini. That's made of sugar and spice and everything nice.

Well, people tried answering your question...what do you mean by wanting to know what it's made of and how the manufacturing process works, but you don't understand technical language. What do you expect people to tell you? Can you explain to me how *any* engineered product is made or from what without using technical language?

I can't find it now, but somewhere on the wuhwuhwuh is a discussion with Ive about the case. From memory, the top shell is clear Lexan on white (or now black) ABS, the bottom is your basic cheesy stamped stainless sheet.

[edit: here (http://www.designmuseum.org/digital/index.php?pt=2&id=1&des=39) is a very brief version of his description. ]

The translucent front is the most noticeable part of the case, so here's (http://www.spirex.com/program/misc/twinshot_introduction.asp) the link to the technology being used.

As Meowbot said, yes, the back is almost certainly a stamping.

1) Nobody here knows.
2) You are getting annoying asking poorly defined and generally unanswerable questions. Repeatedly.
3) The point of a homework assignment is to teach you to think for yourself, not simply beg answers off of other people.
4) If you really want answers, learn how to write in a courteous and coherent manner, and send a letter to Apple. Be prepared to wait more than 10 minutes for the reply.

That was my first thought on the matter.

Which, if the case, why not just be straight with us instead of whining on and on? Hell, we're all about being helpful so would probably jump to lend you a hand if you just said "Hey, I'm working on a report and could use a little help tracking down some information."

Oh, and your keyboard settings shouldn't look like this:

The iPod is made by dwarves.
The process involves sacrifices to a Dark Lord, and much drinking of Kool Aide.
There may be a rubber hose in there somewhere.. I'm not sure.
More cannot be said.. "they're" listening!

This (http://www.apple.com/environment/) is the information Apple make available to the public about how they address environmental concerns. The packaging part of the story is worth exploring, in addition to the devices themselves.
