Interesting, you guys jump all over ####, useing names such as “Douche Bag ####” (Immature and I’m only 15) Yet when someone sticks up for him the response is “whoa! calm down man” my point kettle meet black.

Honestly I dont get this fourm. People are so damn immature, you dont like #### fine, no need to go into his perectly legitimate news story and stupid bitchy comments attacking ####. simple, you dont like a news story/ thread ignore it! no need to ##### about it.

personaly I think that ####’s product looks high quality and has gotten many high reviews. If he can make a liveing off of it more power to him.

basicly, even if you dont like it NO NEED TO ##### ABOUT IT OR BE SO ####### IMMATURE!

I think people are p.o.ed at #### simply because they are being held waiting for product after product and nothing seesm to appear.

I have seen some of his stuff before and it is decent quality, but I think we are all getting annoyed, because he keeps adding new products on his site, but none of them are actually appearing in stock.

Now, everyone not only has to wait for the damn things, they have to somehow make a decision which one to chose. This is made an impossible task, because he just doesn’t seem to be bothered to stick any detail / decent photographs of the cases on his website?

I think if he wants to stop getting negative comments p[laced(and believe me, I am sure they don’t help his reputation/ sales), he needs to give us an ETA for these cases, more in depth descriptions of them and perhaps some photos of the eqwuipment from other angles.

To be fair, iskin.com is also leading us on without regular updates, but at least we are able to see extra photos!

####, instead of doing 100 photos of the same product, from the same angle, in a different colour, why don’t you instead just do 4 or 5 photo’s of each case from different angles and then just have a cloour swatch or something to chose colours from.
i am sure everyone cares about the colour of the case, but I am equally sure that they are more concerned about the quality of the case and the protection offered by it.

By leaving details like these to our imagination, the cynic in all of us will simply assume that you are neglecting to share these details, as the photo’s would somehow show us weaknesses in the product that would prevent us buying it.

Its just basic marketing ####, sort it out and I think you’ll get far less abuse from all these people.

Wow…I didn’t know there was this huge thing with ####.  I do agree that there needs to be some more detailed pictures of the product…say a top, side and rear view of the cases.  They look like very nice cases, but I am not convinced on purchasing one because I cannot see all angles of the case.

As for peopel being immature…there is no getting away from that. Every forum has it’s immature people.  It’s up to the moderators to take care of those people.  if you have a problem with somebody, notify the moderators.

My company is not a 1 style 2 color company. As we all know that in production where something has to go through a number of hands it does not always get produced as scheduled. But that will not discourage me from design more new cases, colors and art cases. I already have 8 cases for iPodmini, one TPU case zipodmini and 7 silicone exo cases 3 of which you know about and tomorrow I will be releasing another new case. Will you start to see stock? The good news is that some more stock is being entered by Angela, the girl in charge of watching over the production of the exomini case. If there are no problems tonight (production is 24hrs here, 3 shifts) and the mold dont get damages you will see 1000 or more cases go into stock tomorrow but this stock will move fast. Our system has a number of people that have placed backorders so they will be auto notified the moment the stock is entered. On the brighter side Angela will enter more colors daily and while this is going on I will be busy working with new colors and art case designs for exomini and exo 3rd gen and they will be release this month. Now that you got me on the topic I should mention there will be another 3 more cases on top of the 7 I have in production for iPodmini along with a drop dead belt clip (1 of 3 for iPodmini). The advertising for this clip has been sent to MacWorld a few weeks ago (watch for in their next months edition).  Why am I putting up so much product you might ask, well it may seem like a lot to you but I have about 100 items here waiting to be photographed and put onto my site not to mention their feature sheets. This month I will be release our hard packaging for all of our items which will make my products brick and mortar friendly so there may be a #### exo 2, 3, flp, exomini 2, 3, flp coming to a store near you.  I hope this has answered some of your questions.

Some stock…. please?!?!?

Only a total twat waits around for people to put stuff on back order before getting the stock in. What a waster.

Asian Killer if you are a distributor I would recommend that you hire someone to program the back order function into your system. It has increased our business 70%+. If you do not have anyone to do the work you can buy the back order computer program from us.

If you ordered it today it may not go out until Monday + 1. Diwen tells me Hong Kong is closed Good Friday until Monday and maybe including Easter Monday. Hong Kong also has days off for Easter and honoring dead family/relatives.

#### you dipstick, I don’t know which business school you attended - probably a coffee morning drop in session at the old persons home, but your “revoutionary” back ordering system is obviously great for you - but TOTALLY lame for the customer, who is waiting around for you to hit target back order levels before despatching ANYTHING.

I wasn’t suggesting that it wasn’t a great way for you to operate, rather that the customer (who you have never done anything but disrespect and treat like crap) gets a raw deal waiting around for a product they’ve already paid for.

You’re a numbskull if you think that’s a good way to do business.

I am glad to see your back Ivan, I was getting worried that you lost interest

Hey ####,
How about taking some of the time you spend in this forum responding to your poor service, etc. and responding to customers and improving your site. Several months of back order! Product supposedly ships. Over two weeks, no product! Several emails to you, no response! Then I get an email offering two for one. Man, I would love to just get the one I ordered. Improve your service dude.

Posted by Colango on April 9, 2004 at 3:44 AM (PDT)

yes i too agree that #### should improve upon his service with descriptions (some good old marketing and advertising that makes the customer want to buy his product) and different camera angles of the product. why make your customer suffer like this?? why must apple make me suffer like this and then iskin.com and now you!! dammit what is this world coming to!

####’s original email to me said I should have the item in 5 to 10 days. If not within 20 days, let him know. 20 days!!! This is 2004, nothing should take more than 20 days to ship. I could float it in a bottle across the Pacific from Hong Kong faster than that. I paid for the shipping. If it were included and paid for by ####, 20 days OK. I paid for it and expect better.
I think I will stay away from him like the plague!

If #### sucks and I can say his product and web site certainly does. Why are people bothering to deal with him and then complaining afterwards. There are other cases on the market people. Even beter ones. Try iSkin or DLO or Speck.  Customers dealing with these companies dont seem to have the problems that #### gives.  The guy is in China. What can you possibly do if he takes your $$ and run?

Good Luck.

My one of my many regrets is I did not use my AmEx to pay. At least I could have gotten them after this bastard!
