That’s awesome. I love the touch button colors. I’m assuming this voids the warranty though? Maybe in a year or two, when my warranty is over, I’ll get this done…

It will void the warranty but if you get the unit modified by our site, we will still honor the time you currently have left on your Apple warranty.

“Due to overwhelming demand, they have made the offer more affordable to customers. . . “

Um, that’s not how supply and demand works . .

If their demand is so overwhelming, why on Earth would they LOWER the price.  Pshaw.

Hi iPodMods—It looks awesome what you are doing!  Im a big fan of awesome looking ipod mods.  A mix between what ColorWare and you do—would look so sweet!

I’d like to add a bit about their general repair service.  I inherited an out-of-warranty ipod with a broken audio jack from my sister.  IpodMods were straightforward about what the repair would cost and turned it around as soon as the parts came in.  When I encountered a problem with it a few days later, they honored their warranty and even managed to get it back to me in time for a 2 month trip.  They saved me from 2 months of travel without music or data backup!
