    So basically, I have friends who like to take my iPod Touch and play with it more than I do.. irritates the hell out of me.. but I digress.

    I either do one of two things everytime they ask to see it. I say NO! and sound like an ass, or tell them to be careful and they look at me like I'm still being an ass.

    Basicly, most people are used to the old touch screens that you kind of had to push on to make work, the iPod Touch of course requires barley any pressure.
    But because they are used to having to apply pressure on touch screens.. is the touch built to be ok with finger pressure or does it stand a chance of screwing it up.

    I don't know if they are built to withstand a lot of pressure, but I do know you just need a slight touch to work them.

    As long as you're not pushing it harder as you are trying to explode a zit.

    You'll be fine. The Glass is pretty tough.

    I'm in the same boat.

    When I see people press on the screen I go crazy.

    I tell them "No, you don't have to press it. Just touch it."
    Then they say, "I' know, I'm not."

    ...and they keep pressing it. |:

    I know it's pretty sturdy, but I still don't like it X_X

    Simple solution:

    Buy a case!

    On the same topic regarding fingerprints: I hate when people have greasy fingers and touch or use any of my electronics. Drives me insane. Especially my iPhone or iPod.

    the screen is made of glass so no amount of pressure applied by any fingers should break it.
    SOmetimes, my friends borrow my ipod touch and I can hear the sound of them pressing on the screen, but I'm not worried though

    I'd much rather have my iPhone naked, but it won't look too nice if it falls and takes on a big scratch.
