yup it advises that on ipodlounge.com. i would get yourself a case for it. i have an evo iskin which is pretty good (i dont know if they do a 4g version yet), it also keeps the screen scratch free as it has a screen cover with it!

I have my PPod on the way and wanted to know about a good skin for it, would you change the iskin evo you have, if you could? isn't the thickness an issue? I thought the pPod was thicker than the 4G...can you confirm this?

I have a 3rd Gen iPod that did have a scratch on the display, but Brasso removed it and has also cleaned up the metal back as well.

is there any other substance that can remove those scratches. something that you can buy from a store, that is not online.

thanks,

Brasso is available in every discount (kmart and target), grocery, and hardware store i've ever been to. look in the cleaning aisle... it's pretty cheap.

you may have to do repeat applications to reduce large scratches... but it does work. great stuff to have around the house.

Ditto. I got scratches within minutes of taking my ipod photo out of its packaging. The Apple Case is a bit abrasive, I think. A case makes sense, but they take away from the beauty and feel of the ipod....

thanks for your help, i will buy brasso. also i got the iskin evo for my ipod and there is a slight tear in the front... is this normal for their to be a slight teat on the front. is there someway that i can patch it? also what other cool programs do you have for your ipod? is there any cool downloads? also, how do i use the brasso to clean the ipod. do i apply it right on the ipod screen and all over the back. will it get recked if it gets on the screen?

thanks again for your help,

you cant get new games for the ipod at this point :( but you can get a program that puts the recent news on your notes without pics. by the way i used to be able to play .mpeg files on my ipod as a song but after upgrading to the new 40 gig photo i cant anymore? too bad, i thought that would be the way to get a video on the screen. everything is great but i wish i had the 60 gig color :( oh well...

the only difference between the 40gig and the 60gig is the bigger size. there are no other advantages to buying the 60gig are there.

My local HD didn't carry it. I was able to find it at Ace Hardware - do they have those up there?

Best $3 I have ever spent :)

I just got my 60 gig ipod photo today from the apple store. The iskin evo 2 that I bought for my 4G 40 gig ipod does fit despite the fact that the photo ipod is slightly thicker. This is due to the stretchy nature of the iskin itself.
Now I have to buy another skin for my 40 gig ipod.
