Engadget reports that Virgin Electronics “failed to receive additional funding from parent Virgin Group and that they’re quietly discontinuing all of their product lines (mainly MP3 players and portable speakers).”

AppleMatters has published an article explaining how to make a cardboard case for your iPod shuffle.

In celebration of St. Patrick’s Day, the Joy of Tech is giving away three copies of “iPod & iTunes Garage” by Kirk McElhearn, iProp propeller beanies, and a choice of some of their other iPod-related gear.

ex24, an auction-based online stock trading system, has announced that it will give away a free iPod shuffle to new members who open an account and begin trading.

Nah… that cardboard box looks veeery cheap… When I get my new shuffle, and after I get the time for that, I’ll build a case myself, made out of MDF… I’ll post some pictures, and let’s just hope that that whole Helixipod’s machined aluminium cases episode won’t repeat itself wink
