Okay... IN NO WAY AM I SAYING THAT PICTURE IS REAL. I AM ONLY USING IT FOR COMPARISON PURPOSES. That being said: My first gen iPod touch looks MUCH worse than that. (Tried that rough end of a scotch-brite sponge once... I have to admit it was beautiful for all of one day. Then it all went to hell.) So I plan on not opening my iPod touch 3rd gen until I can get a good case for it. Anyone know, based on the past experiences with cases, how long it will take for noteworthy companies like Griffin, Speck (I'm rooting for that one...) and the like? Any answers appreciated.
