PodOLock iPod anti-theft
Computer Spectrum recently unveiled the PodOLock for iPod mini owners, an anti-theft system that secures the player in a clear acrylic case. Users insert a cable at the top of the case and lock the device to any object using a cable system. PodOLock works with many pre-existing silicone and polyvinyl covers, and users can insert the iPod upside down as well as backwards to prevent usage of the player. When inserted for usage, PodOLock provides full access to the front controls, the bottom port, and all features on the top of the iPod. The acrylic case is expected to ship March 1st for $20, and includes a 5/32-inch steel aircraft cable.
