    OK, so I just took my iPod Photo out of its iSkin for a few minutes, and sure enough, there are some minute (my-noot) scratches on the chrome back... can anyone recommend a good polish that will "enhance the luster" of the iPod's chromed bits without scratching?

    I've used it without any scratches, but won't vouch for any other results. :)

    I've just given in to the idea of having a scratched iPod. The high gloss surface, looks pretty, but you pay a price for it. So far it's the only flaw (if you can call it that) I've really noticed.

    I find that after the gym, my ipod mini has quite a lot of bits & fibres all over it from my cloves & the gym equipment etc....

    I find that an ideal way of cleaning it is to wipe it all over my soggy track pants.....

    Hmmmmm!!! :p :p

    Just put a little dab on your finger, and spread evenly. Let it dry and wipe it off with a damp cloth.

    toothpaste

    I wouldn't advise using 'WHITENING' paste, or anything else containing abrasive sodas...

    Otherwise after a while your chrome is gonna end up looking like brushed aluminium..... :D
