Needless to say, yet another product that won’t be in stock until he releases another one :>

Bud, I’d invest all you dough in fixing your customer service.  It’ll make you money in the long run.  For real.  Listen to what is said on these boards from your customers.  Why are they all upset at you?  And yes, the majority are upset at you despite what you may think.

Business 101 for the new millennium.

I’m not upset. I want a glowing pink and/or blue exo3 pretty badly, but I’m not AT ALL upset with my experiences ordering from Lajo. Cases arrived within the stated 5-10 days and I love them. Exo3’s make your iPod a joy to hold.

Lajo I have agreed with you in the past alot, but I just don’t see the point in these FB cases, they have a flat back so you save a dollar. I thought the exomini’s were flat anyway? Is it for the twist clip? Can’t they just use the soace below the stub if there is one? It says that the twist clip works with both the mini and iPod how? Please can you answer these questions as my heads starting to hurt.

I would imagine that the oblong clip inserts sideways in a hole in the latex and then turns to “lock” in.  it would be compatible with older model iSkins because most of ‘em have the holes in the back.

I have a demand for flat back cases, you just have to look at the success of exo3. The flat back cases reduces the depth by 3.0mm by eliminating the two stubs and the metal insert which supports SWVclip. TwistClip works best with the flat back cases because you can center it perfectly. There is yet one more flat back case coming out which is exomini-fb.  All of these seven cases are none design cases, they mimic the look of iPod mini. What you will see after exomini-fb will be designed cases with the special surface designs. When I start to produce leather cases the designs there will be more than 1 design they will go from classic to punk, I am looking for the right people to sew them. I have 5 different TPU cases coming out for iPod and iPod mini along with over 50 different art cases.  To give you an update there are 7 exomini designs and they will be available in over 50 colors and ongoing art designs plus 5 different TPU cases and over 50 different art designs. I am just waiting for my people to catch up to me before I start the designed silicone cases.

I agree with the guy above.  Lajo, you must pay someone to redo your site!  Heck, I’ve been designing sites for over 7 years.  I could whip one out in 2 weeks for under $2 or $3k.  It’s really not that hard.  Please, please let someone do it for you.  Make them use standards so browsers other than Internet Explorer can view it.

When complete, you will more than likely triple your sales.  Just an FYI, I know 2 people that tried to order from you but couldn’t.  They ended up getting their skin from iskin (which is a nice skin as well).

Too many damm versions of the same product. Can’t you do something different? They all look the same.

Still one more exomini type case coming out.

If put together a site that is multi order and not click, go to cart come back and order then let me have a look. I am always interested in talented people. Soon I will be working on a major project which will use multi ordering features and indexing of 1000s of products. I need to see samples of what you have done if you want a chance to bid on this job.

The feature page for exo and exomini cases will be coming out next week then you may be able to identify the differences. Give it a chance to come out and then let me know which case/s is not need out of the 7 for exomini and which one/s of the 4 is not need for exo

You need to stick to a non-standard shopping cart is costing you customers, Lajo.  Support browser standards or your business will die.

I understand what your telling me. Maybe you can give me a sample site of what you think is the ideal. I have seen sites and they are one click, 1 item at time order systems and these would take ages from my distributors and resellers to use. It would make online ordering for the trade out of the question. Remember the model I need is one that can handle about 10000 items with a quick directory and can display items like exo from a data base with multi box input and you can fill in quantity for all of the boxes and click submit once and have all your items tallied on an order form that is accessible without having to refresh a page.  I have looked at a lot of site and they all seem to come down to servicing customers that are coming in to buy one to three items and the customer may have the time that it takes to process a few orders. I have customers that have to order 1000 or more items in one go. Maybe I will have to develop 2 sites.

I should mention that business from customers buying 1 to 3 items has increased substantially since the updated site has been made, but if there is a way to improve the growth because of some short comings the site I am all for it. Remember I am the business man looking for tools to get my message across and if you are a programmer that has some experience building what I want please show me a sample.  I am currently working on a business that is a 100 times more involved that Xskn and the site will be a major factor to this business.

Hey Lajo,okay thanks making that clear, I understand now. Please you send me some samples of your new mini cases to review for my site (, I am also interested in the flip cases, I can return them if needed. Please tell me what you think.

Lajo, this is real easy.  You can use a number of premaid shopping carts from all over the place.  I have no idea of what your back system is like or/if that system is tied into your accounting/inventory system.  I see you use ASP for your scripting language.  Are you tying your orders in databse to your inhouse software?

Email me at brett at  I don’t know if I would consider doing another site right now (even though my site says I closed shop, I still produce sites for some reason).  Either way, email me and I’ll give you some insight to all this.  I know a cart that could be launched in a day that would address all your problems.  Plus, I could show you how to make your site compatible with other browsers with a few lines of code.

All Lajo, All the Time. To think I used to like this forum.
