    I notcied after having it for only a few days that there are two small scratches on the screen of my iPad, I've been extremely careful with it, its either in its case or in my hands so this is rather annoying. Does anyone know of any handy way to repair them?

    As a general rule you cant really polish scratches out of glass especially if you can feel them with your fingernail (it is a lot of hard work and often causes distortion in the glass) plus I believe the iPad has an olyophobic (spelling) coating that you will rub off if you try to polish it

    I would just live with it :)

    p.s. I have been in the glass trade for over 13 years

    I've read about some stuff called Jeweler's Rouge, which is used on metals and watch faces etc. Is it any good do you think?

    I'm curious. How do you use your iPad? Backpack, sleeve, toss it around?

    How hard is it to scratch these things?
