    I was wondering why get a case. In the past, I got a case to prevent the screen from scratching. Now the touch, you need to touch the screen so any point of putting a case over it would be well stupid in my opinion. any reason to get one?

    Gone but not forgotten.
    I wouldn't get a case that always covers the display but I would certainly want to get one that covered everything else to save it from bumps and bruises that might happen every day and to spare it at least some of the shock of a fall.

    Having an invisible shield on an iPod Touch will provide a perfect seal between the screen and the protector. This will make the touchscreen work just like normal except for a less glassy feel to it. Plus it keeps it from scratching the screen. Personally though, I will wait until iskin comes out with a revo protector for the iTouch. :)

    I want a case to protect the back of the ipod rather than the front. LOL.

    that does not cover up the screen or does it? Is there something that covers up the screen but still makes it functional?

    edit...never mind...i see how it works. Very nice.

    I 2nd the iskin cases. I've had them on my 5G video and 2G nano, i even waited to use the nano till i got the skin. Now i'm not using the touch as much till one comes out. I agree its more for a shock absorbing factor for me. I had a palm tx fly out of my pocket while driving my jeep and it landed on the street. Fortunatly the case i had on took all the shock and was trashed, palm was just fine.

    iskin makes some top notch stuff. and i might try one of those griffins if they come out before hand.
