The folks over at ColorWare are at it again, this time offering their custom color design services for the iPhone 4. The interesting bit here, though, is that while they aim to make your iPhone 4 more stylish, they are also in the process of confirming that letting them add a bit of style to your device will also solve any death grip antenna woes you may be experiencing. Now, a $29 Bumper Case from Apple will do the same thing, and that’s a hell of a lot cheaper than the $250 ColorWare will charge you while also offering protection from damage—however, some of us choose style over function, and that antenna fix is just a nice value-added bonus to getting a spiffed up custom device.

We’ve said it for months, but we will say it again, as far as digital music goes, the Zune Pass is the best deal in music. Of course, if you want to take advantage of the tracks you download using the Zune Pass, you’ll need an actual Zune device. Sure, you could hit the store and pick up one of the generic Zunes you’ll find on the store shelves of any Target or Best Buy, but why not get something a little more customized? That is where the Zune Originals line comes in. We were able to get our hands on a custom-designed Zune Originals device, and we thought we’d give you a hands-on look at what exactly it is you get when you spend an extra $15 or so on a customized Zune. As you’ll see, you get premium packaging, a neat design etched into your Zune device, a piece of artwork, etc.
For all the details, go ahead and watch the video.
We’ve got a couple of Beats by Dr. Dre exclusive for you today, starting with this look at a pair of custom pink Beats Studio edition headphones. There are three of these in existence, two of which are owned by Charles Hamilton. We were happy to be able to get our hands on this, the only other pair in existence. We’ve got a gallery of these pink Beats by Dre for you to take a look at as well.
Also, in case you missed them, we’ve also got galleries up of the white Ron Herman Beats, and the red LeBron James Beats. Or, you prefer the original, we’ve got the standard Beats by Dr. Dre gallery as well.

Finally a way to add a touch of bar room class to your home: the custom blue neon sign. Rather than relying on expensive custom glass blowing and neon sign fabrication processes these ThinkGeek DIY Neon signs are made of multiple letter segments which are pre-formed at the factory which the buyer can snap together. The power supply is a hair under $30, but each individual letter is a mere $6.99. It’s not the cheapest decoration you will likely ever put in your house, but certainly cheaper than the hundreds of dollars a normal neon sign would cost.
We are thinking of picking up a ‘Gadgets4Life’ sign to adorn our wall. What will you have yours say?
There are some things that even the most advanced cell phone or laptop can’t replace. Tops on that list is the business card - it’s one of the easiest ways to represent yourself or your company while meeting someone new. Trying to find a card that will represent yourself or your company can be a huge challenge - the clip art and fonts available at your neighborhood office supply store or print shop don’t necessarily have the best reputation for being contemporary.
Enter BeLightSoft’s Business Card Composer. The software publishing house that brought the Mac community publication-driven titles like Art Text, Swift Publisher and Printfolio has supplied a fantastic alternative to chain store business cards.
With the iPhone selling as well as it is, we are betting there are plenty of opportunities for people to get theirs mixed up with that of someone elses. After all, do you really want to turn it on and verify that the wallpaper on any iPhone you happen to grab really is your bulldog in his pink tutu? This is why we are intrigued by ColorWare‘s latest addition to their custom paint services; that being for the iPhone. While it isn’t the cheapest thing in the world (but really - is anything involving the iPhone cheap?), we know from first-hand experience that ColorWare’s work is pretty darn impressive - just check out the paint job they did for our 3G iPod back in the day. To get a painted iPhone in your hands, you can take advantage of one of three options - you can pay them $149 USD and mail in your iPhone and they will do it up nice and send it back, or you can just purchase a brand new iPhone from them, which they will then paint and send to you. That runs $649 USD for a 4GB model, and $749 for an 8GB version.
