I dropped my iPod in the locker room after Swim Team Practice yesterday. It fell from the top locker. (About five feet) I have the VERY THIN new 4G. It landed on hard tile flooring on it's back. I was freaking out, I've only had this thing since Christmas!! I picked it up and looked at it. What I thought was a series of cracks was a handprint, what I thought was a scratch was a piece of dust. I was so RELIEVED. Everything works fine, and I had a case on it. This is my case, it works REALLY WELL. http://www.myincipio.com/Facebook/Product.aspx?ID=839 Well worth the 25 bucks. BUY!
