Crap. Barely 24 hours and I already nicked my new iPad.

    It slid off the couch and bonked a glass table.

    Put a decent nick/dent in the black plastic antennae at the top :mad::mad:

    First ding/mark always hurts the most I guess. Arg and it's rough and pointy right where I hold it. :mad:

    I really gotta find a case.

    Sorry just venting.

    I got some scuffage on my iPad 2 on the side. I forget how. But when I noticed a dead pixel and heard about people being able to return it, I thought "Sweet!" So I got a replacement model. That damn night the thing slid off my bed and caught the metal bed frame. I had bought a body cover, but it got a little knick in the space between the body cover and the Smart Cover magnets.

    You can't stop body damage. You can only hope to contain it.

    I have masking tape on the back of my iPad until I get my iCarbon skins in. After that a Clear SwitchEasy CoverBuddy goes on it when it gets released.

    I have not scratched mine yet. The aluminum always seems to scratch easily as my iPhone 4 looks horrible on the band.

    I put a small dent in my iPad 2 only few weeks after purchase so I know how it feels.

    How does that make apple stores crappy ? There is a completely separate supply of replacement devices and devices for purchase.

    Because everyone goes to the store and tries to get something swapped out when they do something that they damaged. As an ex apple store employee, you'd be surprised the stories I've heard just to get a device swapped out.

    Why do you think most the staff there just talks to each other and doesn't even wanna go up to someone and help. The apple experience was much better pre iOS devices.

    Doesn't it lower it /c then they sell them as refurbished at a lower price?

    It raises the price of doing business which is passed down to the customers.

    You are a grade A d-bag and do not deserve to own an Apple product.

    If it makes you feel better mine had a nice chip in the aluminum casing when it came out of the box.

    But it always sucks to inflict the damage yourself, hopefully time will heal your wounds. :apple:

    Work retail...ANY retail...for even one day and you will be astounded at what the public tries to get away with.

    Personally, the stuff I see returned to Costco, for example, just boggles my mind. When I've stood in line to return something, I've seen HEAVILY used vaccuums with FULL bags of dirt; ripped clothing; jeans that are already worn through at the knees...and my personal favorite...FRUIT.

    How does somebody return a crate of FRUIT? I'm like..."Seriously?"

    I know their return policy is liberal, but come on.

    Bummer. The first scratch or ding on anything always is painful. I have a Acura and when it was pretty new, I was in the parking lot at the grocery store, parked a few spaces away from the nearest car, went in to shop, came out and some jerk had put a nice long key scratch about 2 feet long down the door. I was so pissed - my baby was tarnished!

    OMG...I'd wanna kill that jackhole. Why do people do things like that???

    Somebody etched "F--- Y--" into my brand new Jeep Wrangler's rear window once. The dealership was awesome. When I took it in, the service manager looked at it...then noticed that there was a manufacturer's defect in the insulation where the window meets the tailgate, and replaced the whole thing.

    Yeah, I wasn't too thrilled. And it's not like I cut anyone off or did anything obnoxious in the parking lot before parking - not that this should make a difference.

    iOS devices are the reason Apple is the success it is today. That is worth some idiot customers I think.
