New iPod Nanos Scratchproof!

It seems like Apple has listened to people with the new 1GB iPod nanos. They have a beveled edge to prevent face scratching when laid flat on its face. This is only on the 1GB nanos for now, with every other nano presumably receiving this silent update. This quiet update is similar to how Apple started including sleeves with iPods last year. No word yet on the possibility of this new design appearing on the 5th Gen iPods. I wonder how this affects aftermarket cases, such as those very tight-fitting plastic covers. You can read a new nano consumer's testimony here. In other news, I've picked up the flu so I might not be posting so often this week.
