I modded a PDA screen protector (cut off the excess) and slapped that on the face of my iPod. Other than that I"m good to go. It's portable, it's gonna get scratched. As long as I can read the screen I don't care about scratches anywhere else.

Oh yea I forgot the iShades in Rose and Deep Indigo also. The rose is for the day time and the deep indigo for night because the white light is so bright but I need it to see and it looks good.

so does the wax do teh trick..i have hear it on tones of things esp outdoors stuff but an ipod? do it look good too ?
It shines like mad! I put a real nice coat on the back, and the sides (the mirror like surface basically) and I even put some on the front but not very much as it's hard to avoid the control surfaces. It really shines! Hopefully it adds a mild layer of protection as right now I have not gotten a case yet, I only have a screen and back clear protector. Seems to be working so far! I think it makes it a little less apt to finger print as well. Maybe that's just my imagination thou. Any one else have thoughts on this?

Well a bit differnt than others. I was walking with iPod in hand and tripped on a root. fell flat on front of body with arms in the air protecting my baby. thought my bones and skin will repair its self as the iPod will not.

I rub my iPod whenever I see even a tiny smudge of fingerprint. Since you know how easily iPod case collect fingerprints, you know that I rub my iPod all the time. Sometimes I rub so much, I think a genie might pop out of my iPod!

I think the car wax idea sounds good - been thinking about trying that myself. Or stopping in a Harley shop to see what they recommend for the metal surface.

Yeah, I'd take my iPod in to the Harley shop. :p

It did work pretty well... no scratches yet *knocks on wood* granted there is a screen cover on the back of it but still.. the sides and everything are clear.

I went to an outdoors store (Adventure 16, or maybe REI) and bought a small dry sack -- the kind that paddlers etc use to keep things really dry inside when it's really wet outside. It's large enough to hold digicam, iPod, and Media Reader. I got it just for hiking. If it rains, I may get wet (even if I'm prepared for rain, one never stays really dry hiking in the rain), but the iPod and other gear can stay dry. (No headphones to worry about -- the iPod goes hiking only for photo storage.) ZipLoc bags just aren't reliable or durable enough when it's really important, like for digicam and iPod.

1 Ice Creme Cleaner(With M Version)
1 Belkin Battery Pack
1 Firewire+USB 2.0 Split Plug
1 Sony EX71SL White In-Ear Headphones

1 Lajo Crystal iShade
1 iTrip
Replacement Ear Bud Covers from Radioshack
1 Jam Jacket for my 20 gig 3G before it broke and had to get a 40gb ipod. So this case is basically useless
1 Replacement Apple Case that comes with iPod as I lost mine

and I built my own personal Lego iPod dock to use with my Exo2's. I change it frequently and build new ones.
