I've had my Touch for a little less than a week. Most of the time it has been sitting on my desk until my case arrived. I only used it a few times holding it carefully by the sides. Today I noticed several deep scratches. Jeez, I wonder what this thing would look like if I put it in my pocket for a day. I wonder if air scratches it? The new case I got is crap. It is the closest thing I could find to the sleeves Apple use to ship. I wish Apple would continue shipping those sleeves.
