Over at The Register, I’ve noted how the wails are growing loud - already! - from people who’ve bought an iPod nano and discovered that it seems to grow scratches from nowhere. That’s iPod nano owners in screen scratch trauma, to be precise.
I certainly noticed this - the one I’ve been trying is pretty much useless for viewing photos now, after a bit of pocketing. My advice: leave the bits of sticky plastic on over the screen.
Update Sun eve: see http://www.robservatory.com/archives/2005/09/25/protect-your-ipod-nanos-screen/ for simple protection - using a Treo screen protector. Possibly needs a Treo first, of course..
More: Good Morning Silicon Valley had the story too, but - by my counting - after mine at The Register. CNet has picked it up too. Hmm. I predict a riot..
