A few years ago I saved up all my Dooyoo money to buy hubby an iPod so he could listen to his music wherever he was. He is an IT Consultant and travels around the country a lot so he was pleased with his new toy and, luckily, he registered it with Apple. Bear with me this will make sense I promise!
A few months ago Apple contacted Dave to say that a fault had been detected in the iPod that he had and they would send him an envelope in which he could return it to them for replacement. He did this and over Christmas the replacement arrived in the shape of the brand new iPod nano.
He now has a Smartphone on which he can store music so he gave the iPod to me. To be honest I felt a bit awful as it had been his present in the first place but he insisted so I finally accepted it gratefully. I do have a Sony Walkman but it is one of the originals that takes cassette tapes so I have gone from one end of the scale to the other in one fell swoop!
As part of this lovely gift he also got me a voucher for iTunes and a protective sleeve for the iPod and it is the case that I intend to tell you about today.
The sleeve came attached to a small piece of cardboard with the name of the product on it.
The iPod itself is about 4cm square so it does have the potential to be knocked or dropped. The protective sleeve is fairly thick (comparatively) but it is pliable and it fits around the edge of the iPod tucking behind the clip on the back. There are holes on the top edge so that the on /off and volume buttons can be accessed and there is a further hole on the bottom so that the sockets for the headphones and the cable to connect it to the computer can still be used.
The sleeve does not cover the screen but I understand that screen protectors are available so I may well treat myself to one of those too.
The sleeve that I have is a clear one but they are available in all the colours of the rainbow! They currently cost anything from £1 to £3 depending on where you buy them.
I think that these sleeves are a good idea as they will protect the iPod from a knock although they would not offer protection if it were dropped onto a hard surface.
I would recommend the sleeve as it is so cheap and it does offer some protection to my new toy!
