    How do you prevent your fingers from getting rubbed to the bone especially when playing a game like Modern Combat?
    (something other than buying 2 styluses. That would be hard to play with)

    probably to do with the way you are holding your device.
    I'm sure I stumbled across a case for the iPad with grips on the corners to make it feel like a gaming pad.
    have a goggle!

    Oh yeah! I've seen those. I tend to push hard on any joystick so I am afraid I will break my screen. :(
    My ps3 controller shows the wear of that. At least when using my fingers, it hurts to push hard so I don't push hard on the screen.

    I have one..got some for my grown boys, too! It won't break your screen. It moves when you push too hard or detaches. There is another one out that's getting better reviews for stability...called the Fling.

    I use a fling, great stuff.

    Another cheap easy method - lick your thumb so it slides over the screen easier. Sounds stupid, but works a treat.

    I have no feeling in my fingers! ( years of guitar and Bass playing have left me with calluses) :)

    You and my brother would get among well. He plays the guitar A LOT and gets calluses. But he can feel his fingers. :)
