Bing Bling iPod Carry Case

Check out the bling bling iPod covers in my hood! Nutting like a Jackson to say cash-money to your Petworth honey.

I don’t know if Junior here is old enough to have a honey, but he was sure proud of his money this morning. Flashing his iPod cover at me as I walked by, he had a convertible currency spring in his step.

He’s only lucky that I had a fresh Franklin in my pocket, thanks to my Kenyan per diem payout. Otherwise, I would transfer his iPod cover into my 1900 M Street NW lunch money!

Still, I give him props, both for the idea and for flashing it to random strangers on his way across town.

    Caption should read: “Junior before he was robbed of his Nano iPod”.

    iPod’s aren’t the only mp3 player, what about the Creative Zen, which is better than the iPod? In fact I saw someone with a Zen Vision:M on the subway a few weeks ago.

    Personally, I love me a Creative Nano – $100 for 2 Gig music without DRM.

    Wayan and Davin,

    There’s no doubt that other companies make music players, but let’s be honest about Apple’s hegemony in the marketplace,shall we? With iTunes Plus, music no longer has to be DRM’d (and that really only applies to digital purchase, as iTunes nevr put DRM on ripped songs…), and frankly, Apple’s design whoops pretty much every other compny, in terms of Human Interface and accessibility that while there may be others, they’ll never be dominant.

    Uh actually Tom, you’re wrong. Apple slaps DRM even on non-iTues songs that you rip from CD’s according to BoingBoing.

    You’re misreading that. They mean that if you buy a song in the iTunes store and then use the burn to cd option THEN you will not be able to rip that cd that you burned.

    It’ll still rip commercially purchased cds, though I never use their ripping facility – I have other software that is faster and more pleasant to use.
