How come when you try to order one it does not ask you which ipod you have?

I have one of those 2nd gen 20gb models :), so I would definately be interested if one in my size becomes available. I was already contemplating how much leeway there would be in trying to cram it into the 30gb size, but the zipper probably would not close.

I have a Speck Flipstand and an iSkin currently, but I still keep an eye out for newer cases. This to me looks like the closest to an all-purpose case.

If you are ordering from one the many online sellers I am not sure which method they use. They should make sizes available because zip is not a one size fit all case. Let me know which site you went to and I will try and contact them to sort this problem out.

Re: 2nd generation 20gb is not available yet but I feel it will be out before the end of the month. Just check the manufacturer’s site www.maclear.biz for new releases.

I ordered from ThinkDifferentStore and it didn’t ask me for a size.  I emailed them to tell them which I need.. but it’d be nice if their site had said it.

The finger strap is used like a hand strap except that strap goes around your finger, it’s your ipod’s safety strap.
Zip is already produced and we are working on the display box which will be completed this week, then zip will be delivered to our resellers.

I just bought one from a guy on ebay for 9.99 + 2.75 shipping. It is shipping tomorrow. He has all 3 sizes.

Zip has made it to Ebay, interesting. He will be shipping this week, the product is still here in China. we are waiting for the packaging to be printed then we will send it to our resellers. Although I am Russian, Canadian I have been in China for the last 4 years researching materials, working on designs, manufacturing and marketing. China is heaven for a creative person, once you get through the language barrier you are exposed to a wealth of ideas, and materials waiting to be born.  There are 5 new iSkin, Maclear, Macool products for Apple being developed right now and should be ready in 30 days and can be view at www.lajo.biz

He will have them this week, no one has zip at this moment. It will not be shipped until the packaging is printed. We ship by DHL so it will arrive in 3 days once in DHL’s hands. This reseller may have ordered iSkin along with zip and these he would have in his hands, iSkin, we have over 30,000 iSkins in stock, package and ready to be shipped at the drop of a hat. We have over 20,000 zips in stock now but without packaging. Don’t worry you will have it soon.

and is the fingerstrap the white thing attached to the zipper?

Posted by jason kim on June 8, 2003 at 8:25 PM (CDT)

www.lajo.biz is a multi order website designed for resellers and directing online orders to the nearest reseller, a little more complex than ordering one product at a time, the asp code is being tested, last night the tests seems to work fine, we will test it a little more and then upload it, in the meantime you can order direct from one of our main USA resellers/distributors www.applelinks.com, Joe offers excellent service and handles our complete line of iSkin colors, accessories and now Maclear. What you can see on our site is available on his site. I should mention that our product has many extras and color and these may not be available from all resellers. You can check our site at www.lajo.biz and you will see the complete line and features offered

The finger strap is that white thing on the side. There will be many designs that you can buy, we will start with the Astro signs with a white strap.

www.applelinks.com leads to thinkdifferentstore.  but thinkdifferentstore does not offer the different sizes; maybe i should just use www.lajo.biz
it is not anymore complex then any other stores, right?

and what exactly is 10gb(thin)?  does that one fit the previous (2nd gen) 5gb/10gb models?

Posted by jason kim on June 8, 2003 at 10:25 PM (CDT)

37

Applelinks offers the 3 sizes but they have not update their website yet.  Give them a day they will have it up.

The 10gb(thin) is the 2nd gen of ipod.

5gb was the 1st generation and this 10 is thiner.

Thinkdifferentstore.com says “The Maclear Zip is for the new 10GB/15GB/30GB model iPods.” (like the artical above) and the product is called ‘New 3G ipod case’
if i order it, do you think i would get the 10/15gb case or the 30gb case?

Posted by kawabunga on June 8, 2003 at 11:02 PM (CDT)

Order the size you want, there are 3 sizes 2nd gen 10gb (that is the thin 10gb) then there are 2 cases for the 3rd gen 10/15gb are the same size and 30gb is the 3rd size.
There is not a 1 case fits all. iSkin and Maclear are design to be snug fitting cases.
All zip orders will be shipped from China this week to our distributors and resellers, so you can expect they they will be able to deliver your zip case late this week or early next week.
