Yeah… right, they expect us to surprise ourselves with a crap case?

IMO, none of the Speck cases are “crap”. they sell the best Ipod cases on the market.

Be that as it may, would you be willing to take a chance and get a ‘mystery’ iGuy or that ridiculous looking astroturf-nub case?

Also - twenty bucks for a smiley-face USB cable? I’m just gonna go ahead and say the era of cutesy iPod accessories should end. Please.

Sorry if I’m being a killjoy. I do like their ToughSkin case, even if it’s a bit pricey.

Well I think that’s the point of the $10 ‘Mystery Case’ idea.  I personally like all their cases, but I wouldn’t pay the prices they ask for.

For instance, the iGuy.  I wanted to get one simply for the humor of it and a chance to take a series of funny photos of it.  $25 is WAY to much though.  During the holidays, I think, they ran a promo that brought it down to $8… so I didn’t think twice about it.

I feel exactly the same about the rest of their cases as well.  I think I would gladly pay a cheap $10 for any of their cases, so whichever one I get (yeah I bought one) I know I’ll be happy with it.  Even if it’s the one I like the least… it was still only $10.

I bought one of the mystery cases, I am now the owner of a green astroturf, or a the package says “grass-like features look and feel great”, not too bad for $10 though.
