    I'm afraid I did something stupid today, I dropped my iPod Touch on a stone step as I left work and cracked the screen. Good news is it still works okay, I can't believe I did that :eek: :cry:

    Now you have an excuse to get the new iPod Touch that is rumored to launch in September. ;)

    Fingerprints, AHOY! lol

    Seriously though..... i can't believe you don't seem to really ever clean that thing. I'm constantly wiping off the screen of my iPhone.... and i have the 3GS... which has that coating on it that helps cut down on fingerprints and kill/resist bacteria.

    My daughter did the same thing with her iPhone yet it still worked until she could finally afford to replace it

    I won't be buying another one, I can't afford to and I didn't buy this one it was free with hubbys mobile phone contract. I couldn't bring myself to spend that amount of cash on a gadget if I did have it, thats way down the bottom of my list of things to buy. :speechless:

    Seriously one photo tells you I never clean it? Finger prints were the last thing on my mind at the time, I was too busy trying to take pics and hold it in the correct light. Actually I get sick of wiping it all the time, it looks lovely and clean one minute then next thing you know there's huge swipe marks and stuff everywhere. I need a pointy stick to poke it with instead :laugh:

    The anti-glare screen protector eliminates most finger prints. Which is why I use it :)

    And Marge, sorry about your iPod. I wonder if there is any kind of fix that Apple can do for that?

    There is but it costs a lot of money and to get it done at a iPod repair centre it'd cost about £59.95 :speechless:
    Yeah I saw that earlier but these things are never as simple as they look and I'd end up doing more damage :rolleyes:

    Crack your iPod Touch Screen. There's an app for that.

    Since it was free I don't see a *real* loss in the financial department. If I had wasted so much money on something like an iTouch or iPhone it would have been dramatic. I hope you've backed everything up!

    That picture sent shivers down my spine. I hate seen technology broken or not working. It's a really depressing site to see. Just to know that it may never work again and it's just a pile of junk... Thank god it's still working, eh? Try to keep it that way next time!! ;)

    Marge, shame on you! What kind of a techie nerd are you.
    My boss got told $600 bucks to fix a circuit broad in his pool contoller. He went on line and found instructions to fix it it for $1 in materials. And that is a manager and we all know how inept they are. :)

    Plan B - Marge what kind of a woman are you. Flutter your eyelashes at some hopeless male techie nerd and get him to fix it for you. :eek:
