Anti-theft iPod cases

iPods are a lucrative target for thieves, and as a result Elecom has come up with an unusual deterrent: a padlocked iPod case. Once a player is in the case, made of ABS resin, it's sealed with a dial lock that can only be opened with the proper four-digit code. The lock also has a loop that can hook an iPod to a more secure object, such as a desk, or a carabiner. iPods are still fully usable in the case, although Elecom provides non-adhesive skins to protect the screen and clickwheel, if desired. Black and white cases are available for all fifth-generation iPods, as well as first- and second-generation nanos. The products should go on sale in late February for 5,040 yen ($42) apiece.
