Well, I've really always wanted to know how tough our things are, so I'll start a thread. Just say what you've done to you things (iPods, iPhones, laptops, etc.), and what happened to them. iPod touch original-dropped onto SOLID TILE (not like a Safeway floor, but literally more like rock) from about 2 feet onto the corner. Had a BestSkinsEver on the back. Nothing happened except some bubbling in the year-old film. iPhone 3G-dropped from my fairly high bed (about 3 feet) onto a tape dispenser (http://p.office1000.com/ip/MMMC38BK.jpg) onto the two little things sticking up on the ends of the blade. on the screen! i was scared to death since it was brand new...i only scratched the screen protector. iPhone 3G- dropped from a chair when I had my earphones in and forgot that I put it on the chair and walked away. absolutely nothing happened. iPhone 3G and original iPod touch- got the whole home button area filled with a few drops of water (iPhone was on when this happened). I also filled up the ear speaker on my iPhone with water when it was off (putting on a screen protector) it works perfectly fine. I'd say that these things are pretty damn tough, or I'm pretty damn lucky...what are some of your experiences?
