    Warning: random oddness :)

    I had a chance to play with a new iPod at Fry's tonight, and this may seem like an odd observation, but it occured to me that sliding my thumb over the touch-wheel all the time to access my music and navigate menus might lead to a blister on my thumb.

    1) You'd have to be pushing awfully hard

    2) If you're using the touchwheel that much, I'd suggest you either replace your music collection or build some better playlists! :)

    yeah you should barely be touching it, just gliding the tip of your finger along, it's basically a touchpad like a laptop would have. with proper use i can't think even after extended periods of time that it would cause even a friction burn, let alone blister...

    no way! it is like "glass" as Mr. Jobs said. but if you want a blister I'm sure you could get one somehow off an iPod
