iStik iPod Nano Case Review

Along with being an avid tech-guy, I am also a die-hard sports person as well.
I enjoy exercising or working out daily; to including running, weight lifting,
tennis, basketball, etc. When I workout, running and weight lifting in particular,
I prefer listening to music (to get me through the pain and suffering). iStik
promises a better way to have your music with you while working out...

Are you an iPhone owner that lives or works in an area that has weak AT&T GSM coverage? I've had some issues at Gadgeteer HQ (my basement office) as well as my desk at my day job. Seeing a 'no service' notice at the top of my iPhone's screen can be quite annoying, so I was very curious when the folks at Griffin Technology asked if I would like to review their ClearBoost Antenna-boosting case.

Cases for iPhones are a dime a dozen in as much as they are all pretty much alike in design and function. I don't envy companies that sell these products as it has to be very difficult to come up with ideas to make their offerings unique enough for consumers to take a second look and ultimately make a purchase. Today I want to show you the Wave case from Griffin Technology. Let's see if it is different enough to catch your eye...

Otterbox iPod Swim Kit

iPods are a great way to lessen the monotony of exercise. Their compact size makes them easy to carry with you nearly anywhere. However, electronics and water tend not go together which makes using an iPod while swimming problematic. After my recent arm surgeries I have have been swimming regularly as rehabilitation. It's a good workout, but quite boring. Since one of my new year's resolutions is not to electrocute myself, I was very interested in trying out the Otterbox iPod Swim Kit.

Some cellphone cases are designed to be stylish, some cases are designed with function in mind. Some companies eschew size for durability and design cases to conform with military specifications for protection against impact, dust, and water. Otterbox is one of those companies.

I love my Apple iPod nano because it's teeny tiny and sexy. Problem is, it scratches if you even look at it cross eyed. Mine developed light scratches all over the face within the first day of light use. :o( Since Apple failed to include a case of any kind with the player, I resorted [...]
