If only the Zune were bigger… - Macenstein

If only the Zune were bigger…

iPod theft may be a fairly serious problem, but 1980’s era Walkmen theft… eh, not so much. This somewhat lopsided lack of interest in Sony’s once “iPod-popular” device is the rationale behind Flickr user sirljohns‘ latest project.

Hollowing out an old Walkman from the 80’s, sirljohns made the perfect disguise for his 60 GB iPod. He even put a fake cassette in the window to complete the illusion. Of course, now sirljohns need only fear being jumped by vintage technology collectors, but for the most part those are easily beat-upable. If only the Zune were bigger, he could have made a case that NO ONE would want to steal.

Thanks to faithful Macenstein reader Jimbo for the tip.
