Back in 2004 I was looking around for cool iPod covers, and found the selections grim at best. The choices seemed to be clear silicone, or black silicone. Boring! In my naivete I thought I had a millionaire opportunity here to fill a niche, and got to work. Of course it only took a few months to realize that despite my recent graduate delusions of grandeur, I had no idea how to start a business, no connections in China for manufacturing (or money to invest for that matter), and hardly the ability to keep up with Apple releasing new iPods every couple months. So rather than try to sell my handmade projects for $100 a pop, I threw in the towel and wrote it off to a learning experience.
