    so anyway, i'm sitting at my desk, headphones on, listening to my naked/sleeve-/caseless ipod touch, all caught up in excitement; i forget i'm wearing headphones and swing my arm down hitting the headphone cable which in turn jerks my touch off my desk, my heart skips 3 beats as i grab the cable in slo mo hoping the jack stays the f in, back of my mind already sees ipod touch display glass shattering, bringing the music and my day to an abrupt end but thank GOD the jack holds, music keeps playing as the ipod dangles some 4 feet above the ground

    JESUS!

    point to this post other than venting relief? errr... ipod touch needs a magsafe type headphone jack? :rolleyes:

    Good idea, but I can only imagine how many people would have a problem with the fact that they would need to use Apple headphones/earbuds...

    really? how would you design this

    the reason a magsafe works on a laptop is because a laptop is relatively heavy

    an ipod is too light for this to work

    I would rather have a magsafe dock connector. Or better yet, wireless syncing. Get rid of that cord.

    i know i know, also the jack would let loose way too easily when the ipod was carried around in your pocket etc.

    i'll settle on the venting relief reasoning
