    Hi, just got a TOUCH :),
    wondering about the durability of all the buttons,

    I mean, will this sweet thing last a good long time?

    thanks,

    also, as far as applications, any that I can add to it?

    I have had my iPod Touch since launch, it is still in great condition (granted I try to keep it that way). In terms of Apps, you can either wait for the 2.0 software (a 9.99$ purchase around the end of this month) or jailbreak it and install apps.

    Ive always wondered how long the touch battery last? Before it just dies and you have to replace your Touch

    I've had mine since launch. Use it every single day. Have dropped it over 5 times (concrete as well as indoors) and not one single scratch on the screen (thought bezel and back is dented). All the buttons still work like the first day i got it.

    Fantastic!!!

    Yes, the chrome back is "sensitive" to scratches. I absolutely want a cover very soon.

    Oh well :) If the touch can last a few years while still having decent battery life I'm happy :eek:

    The device is pretty heavy-


    so, i've dropped it a couple times, and twice its landed on a corner with the anodized aluminum (around the screen), and basically smashed it in a bit. So avoid dropping it there.

    The screen itself is very durable, first touch only had a few minor scratches (tiny) and could only see them in very bright reflections. Second touch's (first had dead pixels all over, non in second, 8 months later) screen is still perfect

    The brushed back will look like crap (unless you put a case on it) no matter what you try to do, after about.... 10 minutes.
