Best Bets Daily: Thursday

Case Study

Posted December 15, 2005
If it weren't for the fact that, overwhelmingly, the top "Best Bets Daily" request I get is for more cool iPod-related gear, I probably would have long ago put a moratorium on mentioning stuff like this: the rock it! iPod case. I mean, sheesh, people buy more accessories for their iPods than little girls buy for their Barbie dolls. But I guess that, like Barbie, every iPod needs a dream house, and this retro-cool iPod case from Incase not only offers a cozy suede-lined interior, but a stupidly clever exterior that makes me nostalgic for the days when you could buy a portable music player—a gloriously dull, unsexy cassette Walkman—and it wouldn't be outdated ten minutes from now.
