    I went to the apple store again to exchange my ipod. This time he was very nice. I told him the problem, and he confirmed that there was a problem. We went to the register to exchange it. He told me that we are going to open it to make sure it doesnt have the same problem (light leak). I didnt even ask him! (the other guy that I went to yesterday wont even open it for me. I asked him to and he said "im not going to open 20 of them to find one without a leak.) This guy just volunteered to. We opened it and of course we could not see it. Too much light. There was no place darker so I was stuck.

    I went home and checked it. Yes it still has a light leak, 2 ones. however its smaller and less noticably so this is the ipod touch that i am keeping.

    i bought the carbon fiber skin for my ipod touch and in a while i will post a short review.

    Glad you finally decided to just suck it up and keep it haha.

    Honestly, I'd be getting pretty annoyed if I were those guys. I wouldn't even consider that a defect..

    It's a manufacturing defect.

    If it's bad enough, it is more than likely for dirt/dust/sud to get underneath the screen. Other than that, it does nothing except that it's REALLY annoying lol.

    Nothing at all except for light seeping through the sides.

    This light leak thing also happened on the iPod touch 2G i believe, but no one really made a big deal about it.

    I must be one of the lucky few who doesnt have a light leak.
