imageiPockets are stick-on plastic sleeves for the iPod designed to let you store items such as credit cards, money, drivers license or house key. They’re available in clear, pink, blue, green, orange, and red for the iPod ($3.99) and iPod mini ($2.99).

“iPockets are an inexpensive but valuable asset for your iPod,” explains the company behind the product. “They are a super thin and ultra light weight storage system that attaches easily to your iPod. Use them to store items you need to take with you while you’re on the go.”

So when your ipod gets stolen, so does your identity…

But still a cool idea.  good for grocery lists or driving directions or something.

Am I the only one but this is the dumbest idea for a product I have ever heard of.  I can’t believe it has already hit the market.

I thought you were supposed to hide your valuables in something nondescript, not on a multiple-hundred-dollar thief magnet like an iPod.

This is especially ridiculous consider there are alot of PDA style cases that offer a small pocker just like this one in the flap.  Therefore they add the same funcionality, as well as style and protection.

You can get these kind of stick-on pockets from every office-supply, *probably* more than one for 3,99.

Steve Thomas:

consider a pair of running shorts (you can get them supercheap @ Ross or Marshalls when they have them).

1.  They wick sweat like you wouldn’t believe.  As a fellow jogger/runner I can tell you… night and day difference

2.  They typically have a key pocket inside

Oh yeah… they also usually have a built-in-wicking underwear…. so make sure you don’t do like THIS dumbass and wear underwear the first time out… LOL… I’ll spare descriptions but let’s just say that wearing underwear under running shorts does not improve temperature comfort tongue laugh

I wish I thought of it. It does seem basic and cheap to make, but still a great idea. Didnt find one at office store and for a couple of bucks wish I didnt waste my time.
