hehe but knowing your luck, you'll take the player out of your pocket and try and use it as a ball!

i over cared with my ipod, i didnt want to scratch the back or even get fingerprints on it.. i know that the stuggle to keep it clean at this rate was useless so i gave up and well, my ipod still functions normally haha

If you pull the batteries from it and dry it out odds are good it will recover. I did that with a 15,000 dollar radar transponder while in the Navy. It got dunked and was totally flooded. I took it apart and let it air dry. Two days later was using to guide bombers to thier targets in Nam.

interesting lets see we got explosives and a *invinvible ipod* i see a good story comin outta this one. o and the only reason y u see scratches is because u are trying to protect it and ur paying lots of attention to it. thats all its nothing big.

Ouch, but yes, I wish I wasn't so careful with things (which ends up making it worse off, and makes me clutsy...somehow)

Anyway, I think that care thing has gone now. I still care about my player, but I'm not putting it in protection all the time, etc.
I have bought a sort of case for it now (a silicone skin) which should help, and a hard screen protector that goes with it

Check this website out if you want to check what I mean. You can buy them for many players, and its the first I've seen do it with Zen Vision M:

I hope this helps
