ZAGG | invisibleSHIELD | Apple iPod Nano 5th Gen

Link: http://www.zagg.com/invisibleshield/apple-ipod-nano-5th-gen-cases-screen-protectors-covers-skins-shields.php

When I first got my iPod Nano 5th Gen I had gone with the plan to leave it naked, that way it I could maybe use it with some of the accessories that I have accumulate over the years that don't work with non-naked iPod devices.

Wish those companies would figure out how to make docks and suck that worked with covered iPods....

But, after a while, I started to get annoyed with how easily the iPod Nano picks up finger prints....so I wondered about some kind of screen shield to protect the screen, etc.

Decided something in the form of a thin skin might be something I wanted. I searched and searched...there was a pointer to some site called Zagg, but when I went there it was down for maintenance. So, I kept looking.

I didn't find anything, because eventually I went back to the site and found they were coming out with something. I thought about it for a day, and then pulled the trigger. Just happened that it was due to release that day...and alter I got notice that it had shipped, but no tracking information was provided because I had chose USPS...so that I wouldn't have to worry about planning its delivery around my schedule so that I could fetch it from the UPS store. However, the package came with delivery confirmation, so I could've 'tracked' it.

At first I was going to wait for deliveries for the day to finish, but I decided to risk it and apply it.

The spray threw me, and I tried looking for an application video...but none for the Nano, only one with spray...so I watched it and decided to go for it.

Not sure about the spray, I guess it helps the process. It was tricky getting it positioned, and after a few times I settled for close enough....it looks pretty good. Now to let it dry out and see how it fares in my pocket and the real world....

16GB iPod Nano 5th Gen in Red

So, I have been falling behind on podcasts for some time...

Originally, I was using TiVo Desktop Plus to convert from iTunes and push out to my TiVo HD. But, it wasn't working too reliably....so it was one of the reasons I pulled the trigger on getting an AppleTV.

But, I pretty much only use the AppleTV for Boxee/Hulu, so I fell even more behind on my podcasts.

Getting the iPhone 3G hasn't helped...I changed all my subscriptions from HD to non-HD so that as many as possible would sync over to it. But, its been a process of cutting back the list as I run out of space on the iPhone. And, not make much progress.

Aside from battery life on the iPhone is dismal, for just standby and getting email....I keep forget to get regular earphones for it...and usually not somewhere where I can have it play through speaker. I tried bluetooth headphones, but the audio lag was annoying.

So, along the way....plus I had acquired a few iPod related gadgets that didn't work with my iPhone 3G (because the Otterbox Defender case makes it too big to work, and I like having the iPhone in its case....what rain?) So, I got to thinking about getting an iPod again....and decided that the iPod Nano might be the solution for me.

I decided that since new models typically appear in September, that I would wait to see it and get one then.

Now instead of subjecting some poor random forum to a long rambling thought, I will try to consolidate those things into this blog where they can be more easily ignored profess to be collected thoughts from my mind.
