Re: iPod Touch Cases

Silicone should absorb at least some of the shock, so long as there is a sufficient amount in the way of the iPod to be compressed by the landing. I would imagine it would work very well for drop protection if you found one with big thick pads of silicone around the sides of the iPod.
