The new music player is said to be far too fragile to withstand daily wear and tear. A batch released are vunerable to being cracked, scratched or inexplicably failing screens, sometimes within hours of buying the machine.

We placed the nano in the path of the car and drove over it with both front and rear tires. Driving over the nano produced sickening crunching noises which coincidentally sounded a lot like an LCD being crushed. After the first hit and run, the iPod's display was not cracked but was showing some nasty vertical lines. Shockingly, the nano was still playing music and the controls still operated as expected, as we were still able to skip ahead, go back, pause, and play music!

Seriously, though, they should offer a slim carrying case similar to the ones cell phones have (and of course sell it at an astronomical price!).
