Okay, so first off, I'd like to introduce myself to the forums. Hi everyone. Please Register or Log in to view images Anyways, I was wondering. I'm pretty sure that I'm getting a new iPod touch 2G for an early Christmas (I go up to my dad's before real Christmas). I'm all prepared (Got tons of apps), but I noticed that all my friends that have an iPod / iPhone have cases / skins for them. Is this really worth the money? Will it prolong the life of the iPod, or is it just for looks? I would really appreciate an answer, as I'm torn between getting a case, or saving the money for something else.
