iCult alert: iPhone skins are sexy

Lawblogger Denise Howell has the sexiest iPhone around. Where did she get her skins? DecalGirl. They include stickers for the front and back as well as a matching wallpaper. That rocks.

Here she shows off both the front and back of her iPhone:

  1. I can see why people want to customize their iPhones – when I’m with friends who have iPhones it’s hard to tell whose is whose without turning it on.

    But to date I haven’t found or come up with an iPhone skin that wouldn’t just look super-tacky.

    That is, except for that iPhone paint service. That looks pretty slick.

  3. Smart women always are sexy but smart sexy women with cool looking iPhones are …

    Well, I better stay quiet here. Maryam might make me sleep on the couch. But then she’s smart, and sexy, and has an iPhone. So, there.

  5. “dramatically changed our culture” – It’s only been in the publics’ hand since the end of June. I think I’d wait before making a grand statement like that. If the iPhone weren’t an Apple product, would you be as quick to exclaim it’s “culture changing effect”?

  9. This blog comment “lashback” is like when the mean punks used to beat up the little nerdy kid (read: Scoble as a youngster) at the playground except now Scoble is reasonably well known, probably makes good money, and has an iPhone (or, well, people in his family do).

    Scoble – keep it up or do whatever. It’s your blog. People are just hatin’. You’re still relevant.

  11. @9 “have dramatically changed our culture”????? God! You REALLY live in a world the rest of the known population doesn’t. Please give ONE example of how it has changed the world’s culture in barely a month.

    @3 I’m guessing that BECAUSE it caught your eye, by definition it looks tacky.

    Wow, Who is hating who? It’s not lashback, it’s a comment. I’m trying to have a conversation about something Robert posted. Sure, he can totally continue doing what he is doing. He and I can totally choose to disagree with one another. I think it remains to be seem what if any cultural impact the iPhone has. He may disagree. It’s a very worthy conversation in my mind and not meant to come off as mean. Anyway, Robert is a big boy he can handle it.

    And I’d still like to hear Robert’s thoughts on my question:

    If the iPhone weren’t an Apple product, would you be as quick to exclaim it’s “culture changing effect”?

  15. Okay, that’s it, Robert. It has been getting worse and worse of late, but this one made it official: you are truly and completely out of touch.

    No amount of wishful thinking can change the fact that:

    - Nobody needs Facebook, Twitter, Flickr or anything of the kind. None of them fill an actual need. The incessant drive to become a platform should tell you something — they are all solutions in search of a problem. Every single person I know who has tried one or more of these sites and their ilk already has passed the “neat, but so what”-horizon(TM).

    - Since they do not fill a need, there has to be novelty and/or reward. What is the reward? Compared to IM clients and that old BlogSpot account?

    - Remember that old BlogSpot account? The one millions of people have and have abandoned since they realized that they simply have very little of interest to say, and — Robert, this is critical — no farking time to say it?

    Most people spend around 9-10 hours a day on their job, where they cannot really spend too much time in Second Life. Most people do NOT get paid to read blogs or look at a complete stranger’s FaceBook page. Throw in dinner, taking out the trash and (hopefully) taking a shower, and you are left with perhaps 2-3 hours of freely spendable time a day tops. Your precious Twitters of the world are competing with movies, loved ones and getting that thirld WoW character to level 70 — and when the novelty wears off, all social networking will lose.

    - By the way, as the exception that proves the rule, MySpace does fill an actual need: it gives teens another way to waste their time and foist really, really bad poetry upon the world, and as a very bad public e-mail and chatting system. Old wine, new jugs.

  17. And, to stay somewhat on-topic (I of course should have posted the above on a different thread):

    “Changed our culture”

    Whoa. That’s just… wow. It’s a phone, okay? The sun still rises in the east. Around release time, there was a lot of buzz (including in my professional and social circles), but guess what? The one sucker — I mean trend-setter — I know who got one enjoyed about a day and a half of interest all around, but now has a $600 crappy MP3 player and crappy phone with a 2 year contract.

    By the way… “I report on culture and stuff”… truly smacks of the Married With Children episode where Kelly gets her own TV show: “Important Issues And Stuff”. Like, totally.

  21. In order to be “completely out of touch” one must have been “in touch” to forwardly become “out of touch”. Does not compute.
