Who cares if iPods scratch easily?

Scott McNulty

No one would argue that iPods are scratch resistant. They seem to be scratch magnets, but does it really matter? Chris at decaffeinated thinks not, in fact he thinks that the iPod's propensity for getting scuffed up only adds to the experience.

His reasoning is this: the iPod is now a fashion accessory, so that means it has to be beautiful, which it is. Beautiful things tend to be delicate, and since the iPod is scratched so easily it is therefore delicate.

This only adds to the mystique, says Chris, and most people (like, people who don't read blogs about any computer companies, let alone about Apple) aren't pitching a fit about the scratches.

So, what do you think? Does the relative delicate nature of the iPod only enhance its desirability?
