Can’t these companies sue each other for trademark infringement? I’m quite confused as to what is whose product.

Do not confuse the companies! It will be very important when you want to sue them for melting your titanium. Gosh, not like these things were not warm enough, just wrap them in plactic blankies…

Uhh… pbox—

I don’t believe *screens* get too hot.

Sorry, I just have assumed that these skins also cover the bottom. I scrutinized he pics and they do not seem to. You are right the screen does not get that hot (just a little bit, but it wont melt Ti)

Does anyone have these?? To me, they look like cheap school projects from a high school art class. Is the print quality and finish nice??? Looks a little cheap.

I have one on my ibook

its cool, paint/whatever is INSIDE, so it wont scratch.

I bought a plain white with silver/grey sircle to show the apple logo.

I wanted something more wild, but wife said no :)

but I like it, now I worry less on scratches on the ibook

would have loved one for my tibook 15”  and now its all scratched to hell.

but now I m looking forward to the ipod’s skin

Thanks for the kudos Clyde!

We are almost done with the production process for the ipod MacSkinz and are now interested in what graphics to apply to them. Anybody out there have any ideas?

As for the name “skin”, I think we were one of the first to use it for Mac hardware. Software skins have been around awhile.
