Looking to customize your Power Mac G4 with an easily appliable (and removable) hot rod flame paint job, or want to brandish a Biohazard logo on your 12-inch iBook? Visit
MacSkinz and make the dream a reality.
If all this seems vaguely familiar, it’s because a company called
AppleSkinz first broke on the Mac scene more than a year and a half ago with a small booth at Macworld Conference & Expo in San Francisco. Renamed MacSkinz (there’s an interesting story that goes along with that, available for reading on the Web site), the business has diversified a bit with new offerings for iBooks, and looks to be growing a bit further too.
MacSkinz are formed plastic skins that attach to the sides of your Power Mac or the back of your iBook screen using non-drying gummy tape. They provide a custom look to your Mac.
MacSkinz has a small assortment of Power Mac G4 MacSkinz still available (they’ll fit G3 towers, too), and dozens of different designs for the 12-inch iBook. The company also makes clear versions, and will work with customers to create custom MacSkinz as well, so if you’ve got a company logo to show off or a baby picture you’d like to use, you’re good to go.
MacSkinz notes that its iBook skins don’t fit the 12-inch PowerBook, but it says it’s working on it. What’s more, the company is also tooling 14.1-inch iBook MacSkinz too. MacSkinz for the iPod are on the way too. Users interested in such accoutrements are advised to join the MacSkinz mailing list for details.
