    I just realized the 32 pin dock port is mainly plastic now instead of metal and it's shaped slightly different on the sides, (this is why it's so tight going in now) if you have a previous gen model compare the two, you'll see what I mean. I wonder if this will take away from the sturdiness in any way?

    Looking at my iPad dock port I noticed there are more plastic components in it than previous iDevices. They went to all plastic for the iPod touch though. If it's the same type of plastic at the pin connector it should be all right, that stuff is pretty tough it seems.
