    I just got back from talking to a buddy of mine who works at apple down in Staten Island Mall, and i was asking him a few questions, but mostly questions based on the home button (my main interest as of right now

    That really shocked me, i was like no way but it actually seems a little true?

    hmm im hoping thats incorrect cause the case i ordered (speck pixel skin case ipod touch 2g) it covers the home button and i found that amazing cause it offers more protection

    If you keep pressing your home button harder, it will break. I found that out myself. The thing is, I never used a case that covered the home button...

    It's partially true but not for the reason they stated. It will vary from case to case, and you can still break the home switch without a case. It all has to do with how hard you press down on the button. It can only take so much force, and then it will eventually break. Covering up the button with certain cases would force the user to press harder, but the case itself cannot break the button. A rubber or silicon case shouldn't cause any issues, but a poorly made leather case could.
