Last month I reported on one of the new Griffin Elan Passport cases for the current generation iPod touch. It was a good case, but not perfect. Thanks to a tip last week from reader Linda Webber, it has been replaced by another Griffin Elan Passport case that is virtually identical, but fixes the two shortcomings of the original case. It has a port in the back for the camera lens and the button covering the home button is flatter and less prone to being triggered while in my pocket or bag. Also, instead of the metal plate in the front flap, it's padded and closes with a snap tab. Oh, the best part? It's $10 less than the original.
Now, the mystery part. There is no record of it on Griffin's website, nor do any web searches find it. Linda found it at Walmart, and that's where I found mine for $24.88. And no, it's not even listed on their website.
Happy Hannukah to all of our friends currently celebrating the Festival of Lights. The mad JibJabber strikes again!
