I thought I'd chime in and share this with everyone:

I was at the gym today on an elliptical trainer (can't run, broken foot) and was watching a show on my 80GB iPod Classic. It's the black one that was released earlier this month. Moving fairly briskly and wiping myself with a towel, the earbud cable got caught and my iPod went flying down to the concrete! It's in an incase pouch, but it somehow flew out of the pouch, detached from the headset, and fell to the floor. I thought, "Dammit, that thing is only two weeks old." I picked it up and finished working out. I decided to save inspection until I got home and found that THERE ISN'T A SINGLE SCRATCH, DENT, OR SMUDGE on the iPod!

Amazing. I had no idea they were so rugged and durable. I certainly don't want to test its limits and I hope it never happens again, but I thought I'd share this for anyone who's a little concerned about taking care of their electronics.
