    I just done downloading a free version of Audi A4 Challenge
    which after started the game, i realize that while holding horizontally flat(you can try by putting it on the table flat), it is tilt to left 45degree!!!
    I have to tilt right 45 to make the steering in the game aligned with the screen horizontally!!

    anyone having this issue too? is this a serious thing or a norm?
    should I send back to Apple support?

    I've heard that syncing it a few times can fix this, maybe it resets the accelerometer? Try a hard reset, then try restoring it, and if nothing works then you will have to send it in to Apple.

    umm no... completely incorrect, syncing doesnt really reset anything, RESTORING on the other hand DOES, but its not necessary, you can get free calibration tools from the App Store.

    don't tell somebody to send their iPod into Apple for a problem that can be fixed so easily.
