    It's morbidly beautiful.

    Maybe Apple can be convinced it was a manufacturing defect? ;)

    Totally agree.

    It looks like the treadmill properly bent it, did it try taking it under the track.

    Well there's a good reason to keep the safety clip on...better the ipod than your foot! :eek:

    Seriously, that's CRAZY! Care to give details on how that went down?

    well imagine a *THUMP* and waving the ipod goodbye as it dissapears down the gap only to appear at the other end like this..

    Wow, I love it! Hope you had some sort of insurance for it (AMEX/VISA/Home Possession Insurance etc.) R.I.P. iPod Touch!

    You need this:

    Just got back from the gym. Those are scary pictures. You show good reason for Touch protection.

    I have my Touch in the Otterbox Defender and I also purchased the armband for the gym. Glad I did. It may not look pretty, but I don't worry about it while I exercise.

    Sorry for your loss.

    You should submit those pics to Digg, it would be a big hit.

    So painful.

    I still don't have the courage to run with my iPhone. After seeing these photos, I'm not sure I ever will.

    Looks like it's been done.
