Just bought a few. They don't think they will be around very long.
How much does this affect your battery?
No idea. Just super cool can't wait to try it
I just saw this here:
I think I need to order one also, looks awesome.
Now to find a case that shows off the logo
I say no case.
I just tried to order 2, they want to charge me $26 for shipping. I guess I will have to pass.
if only it was available like next month... I don't have the funds to get this right now...
It ships from the uk
Where does it say ships from the uk?
I ordered 2. At that price these had better be bad assed.
If you guys want one of these kits better hurry up: http://gizmodo.com/5868988/glowing-apple-logo-iphone-mod-will-soon-be-gone-the-lawyers-are-circling
Apple is probably working this into next gen iPhone. This is really kinda neat for serious apple fans (got a buddy who is really into apple)
I can't see how this would be a legal issue It's an aftermarket modification. Void the warranty...yes. But doesn't this fall into a similar situation as how "jailbreaking" your phone isn't illegal. You paid for the phone...what you do with the phone you own is up to you. Apple has no say in the matter.
This kit requires a replacement backplate to be fitted (so the light can shine through). They can put a clear square or triangle there and Apple can't do anything about it, but as you can see they've decided to put the (trademarked) Apple logo there so Apple can indeed shut them down if they want to.
They're cool, but they're too flashy for me (no pun intended).
And it looks like Apple is about to do just that: http://gizmodo.com/5868988/glowing-apple-logo-iphone-mod-will-soon-be-gone-the-lawyers-are-circling
Works out like £35 here in the UK. Just too much I think. I'll pass.
Don't companies make aftermarket backplates with the apple logo? And back films? Decals? Etc...
The Website of the seller says they've stopped selling, but have extended sale for a few more hours on their Facebook page. I haven't got Facebook and don't wish to sign up. Bit peed off
Are they the only sellers?
Would appreciate any help.
Edit: just sent a request for a private Paypal sale by contacting them through their 'contact us' page. Just hope they read it on time and agree a sale.
yeah but they dont glow like the macbook. Multiple infringement would like get Apple more upset then the run of the mill replacement back. Especially considering this looks like something they would/will do. Apple loves shutting stuff like this down and then using the idea in their next product. Like they did with the volume button shutter in Camera+ they stole and put into iOS5
yes but a company saying hurry we are going to stop selling soon. Also a very common business sales tactic. creates fear, desire and the possibility of getting something limited and possibly worth more $$. In other words it's a great promo for them. they can just keep extending the sale to.
Oh no doubt this is a sales tactic. Anybody who thinks they arent going to sell these again or just continue to sell these is crazy, they arent turning down money.
Im just saying this is more likely to draw a lawsuit than the 30 million knockoff back covers
Does this really void the warranty? Or if the phone gets messed up you should be able to just put the stock backplate on and apple won't be able to tell correct?
