Just curious. I've seen a lot of "best case" type posts in the forum. I originally used cases to protect my older ipods but decided to not get a case to save money (I treat all my gadgets like trash anyways). so far I've been pleasantly surprised at the sturdyness of the ipod touch's structure and glass screen. No scratches anywhere! Although the aluminum back has scratches, but that doens't interfere with anything. am I the only one who doesn't keep in in a case?
