    Well, it seems that Apple is trying to make the back of the iPod really scratch resistant... They are listening to us...

    But don't get your hopes too high, Apple is known to make BS patents just to set people off guard and keep them guessing... Apple makes fake patents to make people think it'll go into play, but in reality, something else happens...

    Either way, still good news that Apple even is thinking of this.

    Apple plays the "Gotcha" card as good as anyone.

    They've gone as far as to put teams on false projects to protect their new products.

    But a non-scratched back is a definite upgrade. Not much of a reason for Apple to bs us about it.
    "Yeah we're prepping to get a scratch-free-backed iPod. JUST KIDDING, we'll give you the crappy one. lulz."

    See, I can actually see Apple saying that... LOL But it'll be nice if this one isn't a BS project.

    I thought every company makes hundreds of patents but you never hear of them again.

    I saw this in the second post... My fault. I'm surprised I didn't see it when I searched... If the mods want to delete this they can.

    Some probably do, but not all. Apple is notorious for this though... They are very secretive (except for the iPhone 4).
