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:

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.

Now you have an excuse to get the new iPod Touch that is rumored to launch in September. ;)
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:
I thought I saw something on the web about being able to replace the screens yourself. It dates back tot he early ones that would scrath if you looked at them too hard... I'll see if I can find the info.

Yeah I saw that earlier but these things are never as simple as they look and I'd end up doing more damage :rolleyes:

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:
