iDiddy 5G Opticover
iDiddy today rolled out the for the fifth-generation iPod. Opticover is made from aerospace polyurethane, providing translucent protection from scratches with a tough barrier that is offered in the aftermarket for use on the front of Ferraris and Porches, as well as other high end automobiles to protect the paint from rocks. Installation consists of peeling back the pre-cut material, carefully aligning it with the click wheel and screen, then using the included squeegee to help eliminate any air bubbles that may get trapped between the surface of the iPod and the Opticover material. Opticover for the iPod 5G uses special adhesive that won't remain on the iPod after the Opticover is removed. The iDiddy Opticover is available for $15.
