Trendy Geek has released “Pod Shields,” which are designed to protect iPod screens and stainless steel casings from scratches, dirt and fingerprints. They’re made of a thin material that clings to the iPod using high static. The front film covers the screen; the back film covers the stainless steel back and sides of the unit while still letting you place your iPod in a docking station. The manufacturers suggested retail price for Pod Shields is US$9.99 (though they’re currently on sale at the Web site for $6.99); one package contains six pieces –enough for the front and back of three iPods. Pod Shields fit all iPods but are optimized to fit generation three (10GB, 20GB, 30GB and 40GB) iPods.
