FFS #### at it again, releasing product information for stuff he has no intention of having available to ship for at least another month, just to take more people’s money and not send the goods.

Great business sense.

####, please let us know if the normal iShade will fit the exo2mini skin?

Also, how soon can we expect to see these available? from your website it appears as if only the original colour is currently available?

Well, personally, if I had a mini, this is probably the sort of case I’d buy for it; I like that it has the scroll-wheel covered.

Never mind . . .I have just noticed on your website that there are different iShades for the different cases, but there are currently no mini iShades available!
Please let us know your expected dates of availablity, for now.

I guess everyone is waiting for a skin with a screen protector, so its a race between iSkin and ####?

I am not too bothered either way. who ever can provide the better goods sooner wins as far as I am concerned!

Instead of an iShade just cut down a piece of the clear static cling PDA screen protector sheets. They are clear static sheets you can buy that go over the screen of PDAs. When their on you can hardly tell theres anything there, it will never move and you can wrap a whole iPod in it or just cut one down to fit the screen.

This guy is such a conman…I can’t stand him.  He releases all of these ### backwards products, and does not any intention of shipping them soon,nor does he answer your emails.  Look at his ridiculous website, not one green dot anywhere, he has nothing in stock…Don’t order from this guy…wait for the REAL iSkin Minis to come out…

“wait for the REAL iSkin Minis to come out…”

i guess you forget the whole ordeal that many (including me) went though with this companys customer service (or lack there of) with getting iskin cases about a year ago

All these ipod accessory outfits are just out there to cash in on the latest craze, they don’t care about long term business, they just want to skim what they can from the suckers who are out to protect their ipod and really have no idea about quality control and customer satisfaction.

Give it up and stick to genuine apple accessories - that way at least you get a quality product, but still get ripped off.

You can expect more colors in stock within seven days. 
IShades comes in a different size for iPodmini. The new iShade is made from ultra clear, soft, scratch resistant, multi colored TPU and features a new design to totally eliminate the wet look.

I love how people are just straight out against ####.
A friend and I ordered 2 eXo2s and 2 iShades off ####’s website. The money was taken from the credit card the day it was sent out - the same day we ordered it. It arrived 10 days later. [including a weekend]. There were no issues. No fuss.
I love the case, and the iShade as well.
In my experience, #### has done everything right.

all of you guys say that he never has anything in stock.  But think about it, it WAS JUST RELEASED.  Remember the PS2 a few years back?  Give him time and more will be in stock.

When in business it’s best to try not to continually piss the customer off…. #### does seem to have a knack of blundering through the week basically upsetting as many people as possible, “releasing” new products that aren’t available AT ALL, and ignoring customer enquiries when things aren’t delivered.

I don’t know how anyone could say #### has done everything right….?!?!? Are you stupid?

No issues with #### or his products.  Much better than paying twice as much for a product from iskin.  Not to mention iskin aren’t exactly angels in terms of having product in stock, as someone already mentioned.

I love how he has all this time to post here when he could be reading all those emails that he has no time to get to from actual customers. STAY AWAY… you can also buy the same crap on ebay for a fraction of the cost. SCREW YOU!

My experiences with #### have been great—my case arrived something like 11 days after order, and I’ve enjoyed it since.  Although I’m not a big fan of his site, I don’t see why everyone is freaking out about things not being in stock—they’re clearly marked as such.  Just don’t order them.

I have ordered at least 4 times from him and never had a problem. My items always arrive within 10days and I have been very happy with this company. I just wish I would make up my mind and order everything at once instead of every week spending $5 to ship one case. I have tried his exo2 and exo3 and also the maclear zip for mini and regular ipod. I don’t like the colors I have tried and have settled on the maclear zipmini for the mini and the snow exo3 for my ipod.

Does the mini really need a case?
