Sh*t happens. I learned that in while watching Forest Gump back in my pre-shave days. Well, it looks like the poor sods at Apple iPhone School got a bit of bad luck: the type that leaves an iPhone nearly useless till fixed. The type that makes the screen hard to use. The type that makes glass grind into your nails. The type that requires replaced parts. The type that involves dropping the iPhone onto something hard, say… cement and ending with a shattered glass plate.
There are many good, cheap iDevice protector/case products on the market, but few that can run the show. I mean, few that can talk politics, conduct press conferences, cater to the starving 5000, sweep up after the mess, and still maintain decency at the end of it all. The iPod sock, oft’ snubbed though it is, is akin to the above; it is a fully capable do-everything automaton which forgotten by many would-be purchasers, merely bides its time drudging the unglamorous life as the fabric that padds your iPod.
I change my socks nearly every day, but after 4 years, I have yet to change from my iPod socks to another product.
