    Not too shabby. Got some scratches from dropping, which always sucks, but the screen seems to be hard as a diamond. Nice.

    Was I the only one screaming back at the video... nnnnnNOOOOOOOO!!!

    Very comforting in the end to know that if my iPhone ever gets into a fight with some car keys, or a sidewalk that it will emerge unscathed. I dropped my iPod video 30gig once (while trying to put it in its case!) and it fell about 3 feet onto my garage floor. In horror I picked it up fearing the worst and it was totally fine.

    Wow, very impressive. I guess Apple made a good move in updating the screen from plastic to glass. I still can't believe it didn't make any scratches after watching him brutally rub that key against it. I wonder if I can get my car coated in whatever material the screen is made of. I'll admit I did cringe a bit when he dropped it on the sidewalk.

    That's my worst nightmare right now. I try to handle it like a laptop and hold it very securely. It just feels slippery in my fingers.
