First off let me note that I dont really know if this will set you back exactly one penny or if is a bit more or less, didnt take the time to calculate the cost of Saran wrap by the square foot. Anyway I have a brand new black iPod and I was, being a cheapish person, worried about the thing getting all scratched up. I looked aorund for cases and such but most of them added bulk and the one that didnt seemed expensive for what you got. Applying both lobes I decided that since I handled the ipod gently all I really needed was a little something to stop the scratches and this little something could be Saran wrap. Now here comes the tricky part:
(proceed at your own risk)
Get thyself a square foot of saran wrap.
Make sure it is wrinkle free
Place iPod nano face down in the middle of said sheet of polymer goodness
At this point the Saran wrap will naturally cling to the surface via the miracle (I think) of static electricity
Flip the amalgamation over and start stretching the saran wrap against the ipod until failure occurs (the Saran wrap will tear at the back of the ipod)
Proceed as above for all four sides
Now youve got a fairly tight cover on the face of your iPod but we can do a little better.
Apply some heat to the saran wrap (makes it shrink a bit more for a better fit, I waved my iPod over a toaster)
And there ya go, a do at home iPod cover. Id post a pic but you cant really tell the stuff is there. Sincce my protective cover has only been on since late last night I cant speak to how long it will last at this time but Ill keep you updated.
