I'm all for gadgets being waterproof. Maybe it has to do with the fact I get caught in the rain regularly without an umbrella, or because I enjoy water sports. Nonetheless, when I heard that SwimMan had designed a waterproofed iPod shuffle, I became very intrigued. For $250, you can get a completely waterproofed 1GB iPod shuffle and a waterproof headset. SwimMan guarantees that all shuffles are authentic and genuine Apple shuffles that they take apart and waterproof inside the case. And the best part is, if your shuffle doesn't withstand a swim as much as you'd like it to, you can return it with no questions asked in 30 days.
A tad skeptical? These were some of the first guys to bring you waterproofed audio cassettes and headsets, and then MP3 players, so I'm sure they've mastered the waterproof iPod shuffle just the same.
