iVault for iPod shuffle
Griffin Technology today announced the aluminum case for the iPod shuffle. Griffin, in collaboration with designer Greg Gutierrez, has created a "stunning enclosure that incorporates maximum protection with an elegant design. Machined entirely out of aluminum, the iVault safely encloses your iPod Shuffle, while still allowing total access to the control wheel, audio jack, on switch, USB port, and LED. The front and back halves of the case are joined together by 4 small screws, so your iPod Shuffle is guaranteed to be secure. Lightweight yet strong, the iVault and the iPod Shuffle together weigh less than 1.5 ounces." The $30 case is expected to begin shipping in May in four distinctive colors: silver, blue, red and purple. Pre-orders are available now.
