Are the screens actually cracking ,or is the display cracking under the screen?
We have had a couple of monitors at work that have done that. No visable damage to the screen but the monitor is shot because the display looks like it was hit with a hammer.
Geez:( Something else to worry about.

I think you only have to worry about not dropping it.

From my understanding, it's not the external glass that is cracking, but rather something on the iside of the display. Supposedly, when the Zune is powered off, there are no visible signs of damange. The cracks only become visible when the unit is powered on.
