Dec 10, 2001 | Woodstock, IL


Other World Computing (OWC), a leading provider of products and services for the Macintosh marketplace, today introduced “The Pod Protector,” a customized leather carrying case for the Apple iPod MP3 player just in time for the holidays.

The Pod Protector fully encloses the iPod in full-grain, glove-soft leather and features a clear vinyl window to protect the iPod screen and clear vinyl protection for the buttons. A swivel belt clip with quick release button is optional.

As part of the company’s launch of The Pod Protector, OWC also kicked off a holiday Apple iPod giveaway, with the grand-prize winner receiving a new Apple iPod MP3 player and a Pod Protector. OWC will also give away 50 of The Pod Protectors – 25 with a belt clip and 25 without – to randomly selected participants. Winners will be announced on December 19, with delivery of the prizes before December 25.

“The Pod Protector for the Apple iPod was designed to protect one’s investment, just as other carrying cases are made to protect mobile phones or PDAs,” said Larry O’Connor, president and chief executive officer of Other World Computing. “This case was specially made to allow iPod owners the ability to continue to use their iPods without having to take them out of their cases while they are downloading files from their computer, browsing their database of songs with the iPod scroll wheel or just listening to music.”

Beginning today, consumers can see The Pod Protector and enter the OWC iPod Giveaway Sweepstakes at OWC’s Web site, Once at the Web site, consumers simply click on the “Click Here to Enter” button at the bottom of the page and then enter their information. No purchase is required.

“The iPod is one of the hottest electronic items to hit the shelves this holiday season,” O’Connor said. “We feel the iPod is worth all the hype and want to do our part with the OWC iPod Giveaway Sweepstakes to encourage consumers to check it out. With its compact size and unique design, as well as its incredible storage capacity, Apple’s iPod is truly the best MP3 player available.”

The Pod Protector is available for purchase direct from starting at $27.95 to $29.95. Dealer/Distributor inquires are welcome.
