Here at Gear Live, we know just how popular the Beats by Dr. Dre line of headphones can be. After all, when we post about them, those are typically the most read items of the day. However, while they look good and have great endorsements behind them, some people prefer other models of headphones due to the audio profile. What is one to do if the Beats profile isn't the sound they crave, but the Beats look is exactly what they're looking for? One option is to grabs some spray paint and get to work.
Casey Neistat just posted a video on YouTube that shows how he turned a pair of Bose QuietComfort 15 headphones into Beats by Dr. Dre knockoffs. Sure, he may have sprayed over the microphone that the headphones rely on for noise cancellation, but sometimes that's the price you've gotta pay to look good.
Enjoy, discuss and create animation. That is the description that DoInk uses to describe their super-easy online drawing tool that needs only Java to work.

This post-Christmas morning brings two automotive products to our inbox, both wrought with utility and possible pitfalls. The first product promises to keep your car clean without the environmental impact of 40 gallons of water being used to wash the car, and the second promises to keep your bumpers scratch free at the cost of a more than slightly goofy look. Click through the jump for the full details on both new products.
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.
