Hutchings Pod Pouch
Hutchings Software today unveiled , its lanyard case for Apple's fifth-generation iPod and iPod nano. Inspired by the female kangaroo, Bosco's Pod Pouch stores the iPod and earbud headphones in two separate pouches. The front of the case depicts an image of the iPod itself, and the embroidered clickwheel is positioned to allow playing, pausing, and jumping to the previous or next song without removing the iPod from the pouch. The pouch lining matches the embroidery and earbuds, protecting the iPod from surface scratches. A smooth, adjustable lanyard cord protects the neck from surface scratches and irritation. The earbud pouch's position is adjustable by sliding it up and down the lanyard cord, and displays an embroidered speaker on its front. Bosco's Pod Pouch for iPod nano will be available November 8th for $35, with pre-order discounted pricing of $30 through November 7th. The Pod Pouch for fifth-generation iPod will be available November 22nd for $40, with pre-order discounted pricing of $35 through November 21st.
