My Zune iPhone Case

It's no secret that I own a Zune. (It is my four-year-old's music player of choice--kind of the Fisher-Price iPod.) It's also no secret that I hated the pouch that came with it. It barely fit the Zune and was so much work to put on and take off the Zune that I eventually gave up, bought a generic mobile phone case from the dollar store and used that for protecting the Zune.

Yesterday, I was going through one of my boxes of iPod-related odds and ends while searching for a workable iPhone cover and came across the unused Zune pouch. It fit the iPhone beautifully. It's very soft and protective. The cinch at the top isn't worth a damn but the Zune-fob attached to the cinch makes a nice grab point.

If you work out the money, $100-odd bucks (the going rate for a Zune) is a bit pricey for a soft iPhone case but if you already have one around the house, it's terrific.

Finally a good excuse for the Zune's sheer existence!
Buy a Zune, throw it away a.s.a.p., keep the pouch and use it as a nice iPhone cover.


Anybody tell that to the MS-folks?

You can get a Zune for ~$100 bucks? Where?

MDP: eBay, crash&dent discount aisle, garage sales, etc.

p.s. Brown Zunes seem to have held their value least, Pink the most, followed by Black and then White.

Along the same lines, but just for laughs is Hide-a-Pod The ultimate iPod or iPhone anti-theft device -- hide it in a Zune. :-)
