http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TkXlriABfOo I'm sure many of you guys have seen the "Iphone Stress Test" above. I went with my iphone for a year without any protection. While I accumulated scratches on the back, the front screen is scratchless. I keep keys, coins, and etc. in my pocket as well. That brings me to my question. After a week of normal usage with my new unprotected Ipad, I've yet to have a single scratch on the screen. In fact, I even purposely scratched it with the sharpest kitchen knife I could find. No damage. I'd record a video if my SLR offered video. I tried keys, coins, knifes, anything I could find to scratch the screen. Nothing. Kind of like the glass on Movado Watches. Don't get me wrong. I love my iPad. But I love it for what it is, the natural look and feel, that a case, or screen protector would take away from it. Share your thoughts below.
