So what are peoples' opinions on the backs of the iPod touch getting scratched? I have had three iPod touch's. The first was a 1G, which I did hate seeing get scratched. The second was a 1G refurb, which replaced the original when it screwed up. This one already had several small scratches when I received it from Apple, so it didn't really bother me if they got worse. Now, with my 2G touch. The moment I got it I put it in a case. And then I realised the light leak, blah, blah, sent it off to Apple and all that (I think I've complained about it enough on these forums ). When I got it back, the once pristine back was now absolutely messed up, with scratches everywhere. I honestly don't like my iPod as much as I used to now. It's still in it's case just for the sole fact that I don't have to always look at the scratches (though it's not as if protecting it is going to do any good now), although I find myself pulling it out every few days just to look at the scratches and get reminded why I'm slowly beginning to dislike Apple more and more. I really don't understand how they can do this to, first, a product that the company they work for produced and, second, to something that they do not own, something that another person has paid a lot of money for. My parents bought it for me as a graduation present, and they're equally as pissed at Apple for treating the iPod the way they did. Anyway this is turning into a rant, sorry What do other people think about scratches on the iPod's backplate?
