    Maybe every iPod touch has this, or its a common thing that I've never heard about but..... my iPod touch has a weird circle/dot on the upper left part of my first generation ipod touch. I bought it in December 2007 (pretty old), and have noticed it for a while... it seems to be a little lighter (like light brown, almost red) then the surrounding black, and appears to be under the glass covering.

    the pink case has a circle opening right where the dot is:

    so, anyone else have this dot, or know what it is?
    thanks

    Haha, a public release of a prototype. It would be interesting, but Steve Jobs (especially) would never allow that!

    Its a secret camera that records all the time and then sends the info back to apple so they can spy on you.
