I walk the streets of San Francisco daily, and am always magnetically drawn to the glimmer of the white headphones. The iPod head phones. Usually I will simply see headphones attached to entertained ears running into a pocket or backpack of some sort. The question that pops into my mind each time I witness this is, I wonder what they’re listening to. Is that 15 year old girl holding a 512 shuffle or a 60BG iPhoto? On a rare occasion I will get to see the iPod, be it on a belt clip, or the person’s need to change songs. More times than not, the person whips out an iPod Mini. The popularity of the mini is much bigger than I’ve ever expected. The second observation I’ve made is that there are virtually no naked iPods. The first thing to do upon the purchase of an iPod, is to get a case for it. iPod is the new Barbie as far as I’m concerned, it’s got more accessories and do-hickeys than Barbie ever dreamed of.
We have been giving away one of those accessories for readers who left comments, Slappa’s Shockshell case. I personally haven’t had a chance to touch and feel the case, only read about it online. Gizmosforgeeks has a review of the Slappa Shockshell here. Looks like they enjoyed it, hopefully you will.
