My Zune iPhone Case
by Erica Sadun
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.

|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. :-)|
