Whilst carry-cases aren't exactly the usual bit-tech fayre, these little guys caught my eye, and I thought you might well like them too.

With Apple now owning 40% of the flash market for MP3 players, there's a fair few of these Shuffle's out there. But how do you personalise it? How do you express your individuality, whilst also retaining the fundamental design and purpose of the Shuffle?

Well these little beauties are just the ticket. Coming in designs inspired by deckchairs and Paris Hilton, amongst others, these Shuffle wrappers are textile, tactile and funky. If you get hit by a stroke of creative genius, you can even design your own.

Someone suggested to me, yesterday, that the Creative Zen was the new iPod. I suggested to them that they should shut the hell up, because clearly they have no idea about technology.

C'mon, Creative, cool? I don't think so. Great products, nil points for marketing. And, crucially, no iTunes integration. And we all know that iTunes is the best thing since... well, ever, right?

If you know what's good for you, you'll pick up one of the wrappers over here. Our favourite is the Karl Marx custom-design, that just oozes the middle-class Marxist sentiment that we trendy iPod users love when we're stickin' it to the man.

Am I utterly out of my tree? Let me know, here.
