    I don't see what's that funny...double-sided tape is probably cheaper material, and screws really aren't necessary to hold it in place. Seems logical to me.

    I agree. Cut down production costs, and makes it easier to replace the screen.

    But it looked a bit to easy to just pop the glass cover off of the screen.

    What's wrong with tape?

    My Powerbook G4 titanium is literally held together by glue and its over 6 years old without a single problem.

    errrm... would u really want screws in your ipod.

    1. Making it heavier
    2. Less environmentally friendly
    3. More expensive
    4. Perhaps thicker.
