Lock, Dock, and iPod

Truth be told, I thought I had seen every last possible iPod accessory — until this lock came along. Seems Japanese company Elecom thought it’d be a good idea to make a three-number combination lock that plugs into the docking part of your iPod so that it won’t get stolen.

First off, the cable used for the lock looks like I could cut it with a pair of scissors. Secondly, what’s to stop me from just ripping the damn case off or melting it down with a soldering iron? Hmmm, seems to me that this iPod lock isn’t going to do much except piss off people trying to steal your iPod. It is nice to have the last laugh though. This lock/case contraption will set you back about $50 and is available now.
