1.5. The Case

Apple began including a simple black iPod carrying case with the more expensive iPod models in 2002, and continued the tradition with the 2003-and-later family. The case is basically a slipcover with a belt clip on the back. It holds the iPod snugly and protects it from scratches and fingerprints (Figure 1-8). If you're feeling left out, you can buy the case for $40 from the Apple Web site.

Figure 1-8. Some people don't like the included case because it covers the iPod's screen and makes using the front-panel buttons impossible. When it's on, you must control the iPod from the wired remote instead of the iPod buttons. Chapter 14 describes alternative cases and where to get them.
