Today while getting out of the car, I was listening to my iPod. It was in my pocket. As I got out, the earphone wire caught on the car and tugged my iPod out of my pocket. It hung by the earphone cable for about 10 seconds, then the wire came out and the iPod fell on the road, screen down and slid a bit. By some miracle, once I cleared the dirt off, there was no damage to the screen. No scratches, marks, bumps or otherwise. Considering I dropped a Sony Ericsson k800i, with a much tougher screen on the same part of the road a few months ago and effectively destroyed the screen with scratches, this is really lucky.
