    It's a skin, but is it like a case? As in, is it a sticker? Is it made out of rubber or something?

    Can i easily remove it and put it back on whenever i want?

    And which one looks better? Both are £6.99.

    You might be able to, but I would try getting it on as best you can the first time. Leave it on even if it's a bit off.

    It also won't protect the iPod against drops, but it should do fine against scratches.

    You can take it off, but it is a very heavy adhesive so try to get it on the first time, but you can say align it first, then peel it up like halfway to get a bubble out

    I think they both look tacky for something which is 230$+, and the sticker will just kill the resale/etc.

    I had one on my iPhone 3G for a while, just used a pouch plus the skin, it was fine.. even when I took it off there was no residue..
