I just came home and opened up my new iPod! yay! I looked at the bottom of the box which says contents, serial number etc and it says 'Includes iPod, earphones, USB 2.0 cable, and iTunes for Mac and Windows. I believe, after the fuss with the nanos getting scratched, Apple rushed off some cases for the new iPods - explaining why they are so awful - to protect these, and they were stuffed rather tightly in my case. Sos if this has already been discussed, just my little word!
