what is the back material of the new iPod. it looks like the new aluminum case of the powerbooks. but some angles makes it shine. which confusesme to think it is the old chrome back. please help me out on that

The AI books shine just as much as the old ipods. Atleast in my opinion I don't think it would matter much either way.

You can get lost of colors for iPods, including black. Some even glow in the dark.

This smells like spam...

Plus, those are for the old iPod designs, not the new ones.

thats really cool, but it wasnt a 25gb ipod, probably a 15 or 30.

I have any iSkin cover. The thing is fantastic. I love it, especially since it Glos in the dark.

I'm getting a 15GB on Saturday, and I'm wondering if there are already any good third-party cases out there.

Also, is the LCD backlight blue or white? How secure is the iPod-to-Dock fit? Is it immovably snug? Or is there a tiny bit of wiggle room? (since the Dock really doesn't "cradle" the iPod much, atleast from what press photos are telling me)

backlight is blue, dock isnt snug but is secure, the ipod isnt going anywhere so i wouldnt worr about it, one company came out with cases, forgot who they were though.

the dock is awsome. it even make a little sound when you plug an iPod into it:)

it fits snug in the dock, and almost absolutly no wiggle room.

cases i am not sure about. the only ones i have seen are ones from speckproducts.com, but it's not even on thier site yet. i read about them on MacMinute.
