So did Apple fix the whole Nano scratching thing...?

by Jasmes / January 20, 2006 4:18 PM PST

Or did Apple just start including the little cases?


When I order a Macbook I'll get a new iPod with it... if they fixed the Nano's

I wouldn't count on it.

That would require Apple to acknowledge that they even have a scratch problem. I once posted something on their ipod web forum about it and saw the posting promptly removed by their web Nazi.

Apparently you can gush all you want about how wonderful they are but mention scratches and it will be considered inappropriate.

Bite me, Apple!! And yes, I'm schizo when it comes to that company. It's a love-hate relationship on a psychologically sick level that would frighten Hannibal Lecter.

Doesn't the Ipod video scratch just as easily?

Because it is made of the same material? And wouldn't the scratches be more notacable do to the large screen?

And to make sure that nuffin would happen, I used a old sock to protect it till I was able to get a skin for it.

Well why has their been a huge outcry about the scratches on the nano, yet we didn't hear a thing about scratches on the video ipod...i mean ipod with video

Anyway i got an invisible shield thing www.invisibleshield.com and its good if you dont like cases, as it protects the ipod from scratches and you can bearly see it.

Or if your rich get a vaja ivolution case www.vajacases.com Wink

I'm still convinced....

that most people were just being over-sensitive to the scratches incurred on their nanos. I got one about 2 weeks after they came out, carry it in my "nano pocket" of my jeans everyday, and have dropped it numerous times onto very hard surfaces. I won't lie, the thing is covered in scratches and scuff marks, but I don't see them as anything more than superficial.

I should mention that I'm a complete Apple purist (since OS 7, I might add), but will criticize them when something doesn't go right.

It doesn't have to have any
by MacHugger / January 25, 2006 4:24 PM PST

I've had a Motorola RAZR for 8 months. I carry it and use it every day. It doesn't have even ONE scratch anywhere on it.

Admittedly, I'm careful not to put coins or keys in the same pocket or slide it around on harsh surfaces but people just as careful with iPods will find them mauled within a week.

Yes the case is aluminum, but I have NO scratches on the outside or inside display panels. Whatever Motorola is using, Apple could just as easily use on their iPods display screens.

(this very suggestion was removed from Apple's iPod forum by their lame-a$$ moderator for being "inappropriate.")

scratching

Pretty lame on Apple removing your post.

To answer the question about whether the 5G iPod scratches easily. In a word....YES!! I kept mine in the supplied case until I got a hard case for it and was pretty careful with it and it still scratched.

BTW, FWIW I went with the agent18 case. I like it!

The Apple forums on their website are full of replies to post saying it is against the TOS. It's just people who like to be hall monitors on the internet.
