The Pod Safe has got it all locked up
I've always wanted to stage a daring daylight raid involving helicopters and machine guns, but unlike my Steve McQueen dreams most gadget robberies seem to be crimes of opportunity.
The Pod Safe is a new iPod case cum lockbox designed to prevent those casual bouts of larceny. The safe is constructed of a strengthened PolyCarbon ABS and featuring a user changeable four digit rotary combination lock. The iPod remains useable while it's all locked up, so it's a good option for locking it to a desk drawer at work.
To repeat: The Pod Safe is not a hardcore lock for protecting your gadgetry, but more of an inconvenience device designed to slow down anyone attempting to abscond with your iPod. In truth, all locks are based upon this principle. Consider the front door of your home; it's a solid slab that will keep random people from walking into your domicile, but most decorative lock sets only take a few minutes to smash with a hammer.
