    I just bought a new ipod touch off ebay with the Elton John on the cover and 1.1.3 firmware(thinking the ipods with the elton john cover are the newest?). Serial: 1B801EC414P. (Ithought the 01 stood for the week it was made in, so mine was made in week 1? WTF? >.< )
    I read about the screen problem about some ipods not showing blacks well.
    I think my Ipod has the same problem. When I view albums in coverflow that don't have artwork the bottom of the album box is all washed out and pixel like.
    Plus when I view these images on my ipod touch:

    With the first image I can't see the first row of black boxes at all and the rest of the boxes (except the white one) appear really washed out and pixel like.
    And with the jay-z cover the glow gets griddy and washed.

    Is this normal?
    Maybe some of you could try the same and tell me the results please I'm really desperate!

    Looks like you may have been duped =/
    Someone probably put an old Touch in a new box.

    Maybe what your experiencing is normal then?
    Keep in mind, the Touch lowers the album art/picture quality so it doesn't take up much space.
    However, everything looks spectacular on safari.

    So, try going on safari and looking up the same album artwork that you're having trouble with and see if it looks better or not.
    If it does, then your touch is more than likely okay, but if not then there's a problem.

    On another note, I just read on ilounge that the weeks restarted after the new apps came out.
    So no, you don't have a week 1, you just have week 1 from when the new apps came out.

    Tho I don't have a problem with a certain artwork it's when theres no artwork on the album(when you see the musical note). But maybe it is because what you said with the lower quality ...
