"Well it failed the most important test. I just bought this case for my 14 year old daughter and she called me old. She said that the brand isn't cool anymore and that I should just return the monkey case. Instead of returning it Im using it for myself. I've been getting nothing but compliments from my peers on my Monkey case and it's making me feel young again. Not only is it a cool case but it's constructed very nicely. Thanks for the cool case Paul Frank."

"Well, i love monkeys, but this case is not built well. My concerns- it is really thin, so it stretches out easily and can tear. Plus, the rubber is really sticky so putting it in your pocket is a chore. Combine the stickiness with the thinness and it is borderline un-useable. If you want a rubber case, get one of the INCASE ones- they are thicker and sturdier, plus the rubber is sticky enough so the phone doesn't slide on surfaces, but it's still smooth enough to easily get it into and out of pockets."
Logic 3 iStation Traveller is a tiny sound system for iPod Touch (and iPhone). It's one of the cool accessories for iPod Touch that you would find it useful when you are traveling. You can watch videos and listen to music with the iStation Traveller, giving you something to do on your long dull journey.
Like the name suggested, the iStation Traveller for iPhone and iPod Touch is designed as a portable device that allows you to easily carry it with you during travel. Powered by 4 AAA batteries, it weights only 11 ounces; and is approximately 1.3" thick, 6.7" wide, and 3.5" tall when in compact mode. Different from the traditional iPod dock, the iStation Traveller connects to the iPod Touch / iPhone using a headphone cable, which is attached permanently to the station. Also, the iStation Traveller does not has a volume controller itself. The volume will be controlled by the iPod Touch / iPhone itself.
Comment from MacWorld on the Logic 3 iStation Traveller:
"The system is small enough to fit in a large pants pocket, so it’s easy to throw in a laptop bag or carry-on. Yet despite this small size, the Traveller sounds quite good. As you’d expect from two 1.25-inch speaker drivers, you don’t get much bass, and the maximum volume isn’t ear-splitting. But midrange and treble are decent, and the system isn’t nearly as tinny as many speakers of this size I’ve tested."
The iStation Traveller is currently priced at $60. With the combination of its superior performance and portability, it's definitely worth this price.
