Didn't want lazer engraving? Still want your iPod to bear your name? This a simple, but effective idea for those who own one of the popular plastic snap on cases for the new iPod 5G's.

Step 1: Prepare the Pod

You are going to need:
an iPod (duh)- I used a 5th Generation
a snap on plastic case- Agent 18 is the kind I bought at the Apple Store
something to write on- What you will write your info on
a pen- To write
tape- To tape
a ruler- Or you can just guestimate
Yeah<br/><strong>light amplification</strong> by <strong>stimulated emission</strong> of <strong>radiation</strong><br/>
LoL. Ghetto...... If your looking for another free way to Identify you ipod, I edit the ipods firmware to give a custom page with your contact info...... this way its burnt into the memory and cannot be deleted or formatted.
thing is you cant do that with 2 gen nano's it's encrypted
And 3rd generation Nanos! Its annoying!
yeah... no doom, either...
you mean ipodwizard? yeah i got that too it screwed up my headphones sorta or they were just bad =/<br/>
I would be able to get the area code out of there if it weren't for you meddling kids and the jpeg.
Dremel makes an engraving bit that would work better and would actually be permanent
well the person who stole your ipod could grind off the engraving, and there is a 5$ diamond tip engraving tool here<br/><br/><a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.goldmine-elec-products.com/prodinfo.asp?number=G13381">http://www.goldmine-elec-products.com/prodinfo.asp?number=G13381</a><br/><br/>yes i have a dremel but this is nice to just have around - i really didnt want my son screwing with dremel so i bought him this and his nano is &quot;pimped&quot; now and it actually does look cool - i would have a pic of it right now but he doesn't trust me with it and i dont trust him with my tools<br/>
I like it man...if i had platic case i would def. get on that
I really like what you've done with the pen there. Old school.
Yeah, this is definately the ghetto way to basically tell your iPod apart from others or let honest people return it to you.
