This hilarious sticker might save your AirPods from getting stolen

This hilarious sticker might save your AirPods from getting stolen
There are some who believe that in their charging case, the Apple AirPods resemble a box containing dental floss. And you can actually use that resemblance to prevent your AirPods from getting ripped off. For only $4.99, Etsy is offering a sticker that makes your AirPods charging case look like nothing more than a box of cheap floss.

The sticker is designed to be placed on front of the case. Everything from the wording on the label that says "Original Floss," to the phony Oral O branding wouldn't cause anyone to give the container a second look. In fact, you could probably leave the container in your desk at work and not worry about your AirPods getting stolen. That is, unless you have a co-worker who needs to floss!

Considering that the AirPods cost $159 for the set, paying $4.99 for the sticker seems like a bargain. If interested in turning your valuable AirPods into cheap floss, click on the sourcelink.

I think only the media is ''strangely'' obsessed with those TamPods.

You love that word "media" a great deal, especially blaming said concept for every problem you've encountered in your life. Wish I had a built in scapegoat to blame when things go sideways lol....

Can't wait for article, how somebody have sold kidney for TamPods. Or about armed robbery in jewelry store, just to take the TamPods from the sellers . The US media and Apple's PR can surprise us, with something even better. Right?

The idea is that with the case closed people would mistake it for dental floss. Who's going to steal dental floss? Obviously with the case open the sticker is useless.

I would never be fooled by such a plain sight mean of hiding something. I guess I just think it's stupid lol, if someone was looking to rob then they would get them one way or another.

This could only increase the risk of stealing. More are the ppl, that think the floss is more practical and useful .

Don't feed the trolls. More time spent in Apple articles than android.

He's saying the airpods are less useful and practical then dental floss?

So basically....... he'd steal the floss?

I have greater need of another box of dental floss than the Apple RipOffs.

That may be true, but wouldn't it be smarter to steal the AirPods anyway? Sell them and make some money... And they're not really a rip off considering they're cheaper than competitors. IconX, Jabra elite sport, bragi dash, earin, etc.

When he said 'RipOffs' he didn't mean the price, but what you get for this price. Some fugly hilarious joke , made of cheap components. Same apply to the iPhone price too.

Question. Should a product that has less features, cost less than a similar product with more features? AirPod vs Icon X - 159.99 vs 199.99 What they have in common: 1 - Works with any Bluetooth Enable Device for Audio 2 - Have sensor for touch input 3 - Come with a charging case. 4. Has an app that tells you battery percentage Now, here are the features the Icon X have that Aple AirPods do not. Icon X allows for noise cancellation ot be turned off to hear ambient sound, comes with extra rubber caps for a better ear fit to help fit more ear sizes, has onboard storage so the earbuds can be used as a standalone headset, have fitness tracking capabilities that sync later with S-Health, splash resistence and has touch input to control music playback directly...not with a voice assistant. Now even though they both are overpriced, wouldn't you exect to pay more for the Icon X vs any other option since they do moire? Please show me earbuds that even have 50% those features?

I really hope they give you a character limit at some point. You waste so much time dancing around the point, it makes it look as though you have none to present. That's legit criticism BTW, not me being a satirical jerk this time. I don't even give a s**t about the AirPods or IconXii, but you'd be doing a great service by lowering your word count......

Either that, stealing both, or that neither are worth stealing?

Yes because all the world want these pieces of diamonds. Keep it up Apple. Apple innovates, the others follow.

You're just as bad as those Sammy degenerates. These are good, I guess, but they sure as hell ain't diamonds (although for the price......they probably should be). Not even close either.

It could also be disguised as a box of kints/ gum...

What a crazy advertising for an overpriced sticker, which should cost not more than half a dollar...or less
