Dick Tracy it’s not August 26, 2007

Posted by reverseengineer in Accessories, iPods.

Now we’ve seen everything. In a effort to squeeze every last drop of revenue from a fading product, manufacturers are thinking up all sorts of last-minute gimmicks to make a sale. See the neoprene iPod shuffle Watch Style Case from USB Fever. Comes in the usual colors, and gives you access to all the controls and ports of the player even while it’s in the case.

I just wonder how inconvenient it would be to have the earphone cable dangling from your wrist to your ears, in the way of nearly everything. In fact, I wonder about the wisdom of creating such a wearable casing for something that’s eminently wearable by itself via the built-in-clip. You can attach it to nearly everything on you, from a baseball cap, headband, shirt pocket, hem, collar or sleeve, or even your darned earlobe, so why would you need this thing? Attach it to your shirt cuff if that’s what all you want done.

But hey, different strokes for different folks, right? Shipping is free worldwide from USB Fever when you order it for US$10. Get ’em while they’re, uh, hot.
