Hide your I-Pod from would be thieves

Hide your I-Pod in a Microsoft Zune! No one will want to steal it if they think it's a Zune! For a really geeky laugh, click their order button.

From their Frequently Asked Questions page:

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
Can I choose my Zune color?
Sorry, no. We only use brown Zunes for the maximum anti-theft protection.

How can you do this so cheap?
There were a lot of disappointed kids last Christmas who wanted an iPod but were given a Zune by some well-meaning friend or relative. Consequently, there is a glut of Zunes available on eBay every day. We buy ‘em cheap and throw away the guts to make our product at a great price.

Will all iPod models (and iPhone) fit?
Of course! The Zune is so incredibly huge that there’s plenty of room for any iPod or iPhone along with your choice of accessories, a sack lunch, and maybe a small cat.

Do you make the Zune control wheel scroll the iPod?
The Zune control wheel is a fake. Get over it! The Zune looks like it has a scroll wheel on the front but it’s just a round hunk of plastic with a few buttons under it. There’s not much we can do about that.

Does my iPod gain any of the Zune features?
We leave the Zune’s wifi circuitry in place, but disconnected. It will then work just about as well with your iPod as it does with a regular Zune.

Do I get the Zune headphones too?
Of course. Getting rid of those shiny white ear buds is a key part of the anti-theft system. We provide the original brown earbuds because we certainly don’t have any other use for them.
