It's Official: U2 iPods Scratch a LOT

I'm on my third U2 iPod. The first one had the back all scratched - right through the signatures!

The second one had the face scratched!

I'm on my third now.

Despite treating them like platinum and using a carrying case, they still scratch. This one now has little scratches on the black case.

I'm not returning this one - too much hassle. And I ordered some solution that will hopefully remove minor scratches. But still - dang these things scratch easily! A strong winter wind blew by and I saw a scratch form!

When I was exchanging mine a second time, I saw a handsome young lad exchanging his iPod too. I told him to buy a case and he agreed. He said his luck with the iPods was even worse than mine - as one time the entire black case came right off! He was on his third of fourth exchange!!

While I was happy to see a such a young person liking U2 enough to get the iPod, it makes me wonder about the quality of these things.

Anyone else notice scratch city on their iPods?

Oh, and in case this thread is STILL too serious for those who wallow in shallowness, uh... my boobs are frozen.

All iPods scratch. There is no point stressing over it - it's a temporary piece of electronics anyway. I've long ago stopped worrying about mine being scratched.

It's the one thing I really don't like about the design aside from how nasty fingerprints look on the back.

Now thaw dem boobs!

Yeah, this is why I'm not returning this iPod - they all scratch and they scratch fast! However, when the scratch went through the sigs on back or the screen in front, I had to return it - that just wouldn't do.

And while my boobs never really froze, my father's apparently did. It's 72 in here and he's still cold. Of course, this is my house and as I'm paying the heating bills, I told him to wrap up in a blanket. I refuse to crank up the heat any higher.

So that's what it is! I thought I was just being careless. I cannot bring myself to buying a case. I feel so guilty for having spent a lot on the iPod itself.

Why are you being so unessecarily rude?

Jesus Christ. Take your fucking arrogance and piss off to where you think people are bowing.

I'd just read the other one which was the same tone, so perhaps I misunderstood. Still.

I think you are right.

It is best just to ignore threads that piss you off, that is what I try to do.

You silly girl, you post nothing but silliness in the silly penis forum! You seem to love the silliness of writing the word "penis"!

Perv.
