    So I was applying the Best Skins Ever cover for my iPod touch (kinda like the Invisible Shield), I dipped the "skin" into some water and applied it like usual... however when I was done, I noticed I only had "control" of the touch sensitivity on the top half of the screen? And if I look closely on the bottom half, there's a small "wet" spot (it goes away when I turn off the iPod and comes back when I turn it back on); is this um... permanent damage? =(

    While it is usual for small areas of moisture to be trapped under the shield (it will evaporate fairly quickly), it is not usual for the bottom half of the screen to stop working.

    If it doesn't start working again in a day, I'd try to return it for a new one, there shouldn't have been enough water for it to change the detector.

    sweat should have nothing to do with it unless u sweat like a gallon onto it just do what Dan said and you should be fine a small drop like that most likely wont set off the strip unless its right on it. And dont tell them about the water droplet just say that the bottom half of the screen wont respond. They should replace it. Oh wow i might get banned for telling u that oh well
