    This problem is obviously VERY widespread. Blacks looks so bad and strange on these things, you almost can't watch video on them. Seriously, it's that bad. I'm not one to complain until the problem is to the point where it can't be overlooked. Well, these screen are to that point. Blacks on them are gray/shiney, negative space type of colors. WOW it's bad. To make it halfway acceptable you have to hold it at a strange "tilted-up" angle, not even looking at it straight on.

    Has anyone contacted Apple about this yet? If so, have you gotten anywhere with them? We've got to get this figured out.

    Can someone please respond who's talked with Apple about this and let me/us know what you've got figured out?

    Yes it is very widespread...and Apple knows it. I am on the phone right now calling about my neg black touch screen, and i got transferred to a "dedicated ipod touch technical support line." A lot of people must be calling in...

    Do you folks think apple would release these knowing about this problem?
