We didn’t want you to think we had forgotten you on this illustrious holiday for lovers, so we came up with one more gift idea for Valentines Day. iFrogz has a new iPod 2G nano case that comes with speakers. The Audiowrapz Case is made of silicone with passive speaker technology so you don’t need batteries. Choose your wrap from 8 colors for $24.99 and add your choice of screen for $6.00, or get both for $27.99.
(Happy Heart Day, Gear Livers!)

The first of the MacBook Air accessories are already upon us. Belkin has come out with several covers. This one is the Expression Sleeve with shoulder strap, and others include the Vertical, the Slim-Fit, the Leather/Neoprene, the Neoprene, and the Slim-Fit with band. All of the cases are priced from $29.99 to $49.99 and come with lifetime warranties. The Neoprenes will be out in March with the others to follow in May. While there is nothing particularly unique about the cases, if you need to be official, this certainly beats your old MacBook cover.

The search for the perfect iPhone case is an arduous task. Screen protection, side button access, clips, card slots, maybe even a stand—the list of secondary duties that a case can perform is growing almost daily. Marware’s Sidewinder for iPhone offers another entry in the list of case functions—earphone organization.
If you’re using the stock iPhone earbuds (or any other earbud-style headphones), the Sidewinder will keep them tangle free and wrapped around a slide out arm. The arm also sports a cutout that holds Apple’s Bluetooth earpiece. The iPhone can be mounted in the holster with the screen facing out or in. The Multidapt clip on the back rotates 360 degrees, can be used as a stand for vertical or horizontal viewing, and can be switched out for any of the other Multidapt accessories.
Sidewinder for iPhone retails for $24.99 and Multidapt accessories range in price from $4.99 to $19.99 USD.

If you’re like us, finding the right case for your iPod is a tough decision. You want durability, but you’d like it to say a lil’ sumthin sumthin about you too. If you own a 1st or 2nd Gen nano, check out Red Snapper. There, you can customize a hard, scratch-resistant case with the photo or artwork of your choice! Just download the template, create your design, then email to Red Snapper. All for about $30.50 USD. You can even enter you design into a competition…check out the entrants here. While we’re happy for nano users, we’re hoping Red Snapper expands to include all types of iPods.
Protect your iPod shuffle with this original Bevy case that also allows you to wrap up your earbuds, carry your keys and, after removal of your PMP, pop the top off a brew. The Bevy was awarded the 2007 MacWorld design contest, leading us to believe that Mac people cannot do without their Heinekens (just kidding.) The gadget is temporarily out of stock, but you can pre-order for the next batch at Firebox at a price of $14.95.

Surrounding the release of Apple‘s iPhone there was a flurry excitement surrounding various cases to protect and showcase a consumer’s shiny new obsession. A number of cases including simple cloth slipcovers, protective rubber enclosures, and elaborate leather constructions flooded onto the market, each with different plusses and minuses.
Gear Live has previously reviewed several of the high-end leather cases by Argentinean case manufacturer Vaja, and given our extremely positive experiences in the past, we jumped at the opportunity to check out their new iVolution line of iPhone cases. The iVolution line has a number of different styles of cases and holsters, and we selected the fully-enclosed protection offered by the iVolution Top SP Holster. Click through the jump for the full in-depth review.
Want to dress up your Wii? Talismoon has come up with a series of Evolve cases to prove you have the coolest look, even if you aren’t the best player on the block. The collection includes 8 designs and carries the fancy titles of Abyss, Black Katana, Blue Boshido, Green Tanto, Pink Geisha, Red Ronin, Silver Shuriken, and Stealth Assassin. Each cover is $39.95 and features a rear access panel, removable door, and slot color selection. The company is so jazzed about their product that they even created this animated short to sell the cases. Pretty nifty, but you don’t get to see the product until the last few seconds.
