But after using it several weeks it has grown on me enough to replace my Nike armband. An added bonus of the Speck armband is that it includes a sensor pouch to hold the Nike+ sensor.

If you have purchased an Apple iPod nano, you know that it is almost impossible to avoid scratching this digital audio player. I speak from experience, as after having mine for only one day, the clear plastic layer covering the display had scuffs and the chrome back plate had thin scratches all over it. Being [...]

My iPod was one of my more extravagant gadget purchases. This seemingly delicate device would be exposed to the risk of damage pretty much constantly. I would listen to audio books and ripped news programmes on the way to work, music while writing at work, music while walking from office to the sandwich bar ... [...]
