Where'd you find a case for your iPod video? I just got one and I'm terrified that I'll ruin the screen, but I haven't been able to find any decent cases for sale.

Funny you should ask - I did quite a bit of unintentional research on this issue this week. I initially found and eventually bought a case at Best Buy - it's a DLO "Action Jacket" - a neoprene sport case with an arm band or belt clip that has a clear casing covering the click wheel and screen. It's specially redesigned for the iPod video version.

I saw it when I picked up the pod yesterday, but thought I could find a cuter, better one at the Apple store.

Wrong!

They had one supposed video model which was merely a slip on case - thus defeating the entire video aspect of the video iPod.

CompUSA had nothing either.

So Best Buy may be your best bet.

Thanks for the birthday/fashionista shoutout...It was great talking to you...
I was really sorry to read The roundup this morning...I know you two are close...i was going to forward it to you, but it felt like gossiping...it's really hard to deal with...hang in there.

Great. Thanks for the Best Buy suggestion. I also made a fruitless trip to the Apple store. I'll go to BB this afternoon!

Best thing that I discovered today: That I can finally leave comments from my mobile phone some 8000 miles away.

PS: Staunton Lick. Excellent choice :)
