Here’s something that is all about image. The Pod Safe is a lock for your iPod that certainly locks itself to the device but doesn’t exactly keep someone from stealing the whole thing.
You can encase your iPod in the locking device and assign a four-number combination to the lock. The cable is steel and scratch-resistant, making it an attractive security option. While the lock is attached, you can still attach headphones and recharge the iPod.
We would expect, however, that the thief who goes to the length of trying to shatter the lock with a hammer might think twice unless he or she is incredibly accurate with that hammer, while also being willing to risk shattering the iPod as well.
The Pod Safe is available here for US$39.95. Regular, video, and nano models are available.
