Are you the type that tends to drop your phone, mouse, iPod, glass of water? We have a partial solution. Tinbots are not only sturdy, being made out of tin, but have been designed by artists Mad, Sket-one, Christopher Lee, Jock, Parra, Kurt Ketchum, and 7Sleeper. They also feature interior neoprene padding, and headphone and charging ports. The 2nd generation cases are compatible with iPod Videos 30/60/80GB and Classics 80/160GB for $29.95. One is available in matte white that you can customize for $10.00 less. Sorry, Tinbots don’t come in glass of water size.

The holidays are right around the corner, and while we’ve been sharing our picks for what you should buy in our 2007 Holiday Gift Guide, we also feel we should drop some knowledge in video form as well. I mean, it’s what we do, right? Anyhow, in this one, we give you a look at the complete Apple iPod lineup that is available this holiday season. If you wanted a refresher on exactly what each iPod model has to offer feature-wise, this is the video to check out. We are talking about everything from the iPod shuffle, all the way up to the iPhone itself. Strap yourself in and check out the video, and if you plan on buying an iPod for someone special this year (or yourself), let us know which you choose.
We recently clued you in to the fact that Colorware was offering custom iPhone paint jobs, but Lars just let us know that they are now offering customization on the new iPod classic, iPod nano, and iPod touch lines. If that wasn’t enough, they are even taking order for paint jobs on the new aluminum iMac as well. Colorware already does the Mac mini, so it would seem the only thing left out would be the Mac Pro. It’s probably for the best. In any event, you can head over to Colorware now if you want to get your paint on. They’ll allow you to send in your device to be painted, or you can purchase a brand new one directly from them. Of course, this all comes at a premium.

Steve Jobs just announced a complete refresh and redesign for the entire iPod line during the September 5 Apple event. The standard iPod was rechristened as the iPod classic, and the old white iPod is no more - the iPod classic is currently only available in silver and black colors. We got our hands on one of the new silver models, and have compiled an iPod classic unboxing gallery for your viewing pleasure. We give you a look at the box, the iPod classic itself, it’s bundled accessories, and everything else you’d expect…although that about covers it.
