    Why did Apple build the ipod touch with a chrome/aluminum backing??
    I got a hard cover case for my ipod and it still smudges and scratches lol

    Since they always did it.

    Also looks nice.

    Makes it look more fancy if you ask me.

    Apple's philosophy is "if it has no sharp edges and has chrome finish, people will buy it".

    I wouldn't say it's that bad. The back can get scratched up a bit but using a screen protector should be fine for the screen. I don't have any scratches on mine really. People are just retarded and do stupid things with their iPods.

    The moral: Don't put your iPod in the same pocket as your change.

    how about not get a silcone case??? moisture gets up through the bottom of the case and smudges the back
    its impossible to get off with a microfiber cloth lol

    Why do you even see smudges if you're using a case anyway? [​IMG]

    I have a silicone case and experience no smudges/scratches (on the aluminum backing) whatsoever.

    i believe i have a silicone case (kinda flexible like rubber) and i have no smudges, but i do have pre-case scratches because i put it in my pocket without a case
