I knew it was only a matter of time, but holy crap, I almost peed myself. I dropped my touch today, totally unclothed. It was up on the screen of the elliptcal machine at the gym, I had just finished my workout, I went to grab something, and I hit the headphone cable. It fell from the screen down to the foot pedal ~3'. No scratches, no scrapes, no nothing at all. I'm impressed.
