    i tried to turn the auto brightness on, on a well lit room, okay the screen is dimmed.. good.. but on a closed door small room without any light pitch black..... it's still the same >_<

    can somebody post an actual picture of the ipod touch and indicate the sensors... thank you!

    The reason it looks the same is because of the contrast in brightness

    Look above your screen at the black area on top of the iPod. Get a bright light or put it in sunshine and look towards the middle of it. It's a little red dot. That's where the iPod senses light for auto-brightness.

    That explains the random hole in my plastic case! I thought it might be so that it fits the iphone too

    The iPod Touch 1G's sensor is in the upper-left, per the diagram above. The 2G's sensor got moved to somewhere just to the right of center and a bit below where the 1G's sensor was.
