…Apple is colorblind?

iPod Nano

Apple went iPod crazy on Tuesday, and released an updated Nano, a new Touch, a larger (and cheaper) Classic, and Shuffles in all new (for them) colors.

The tech blogs have all managed to beat this news into the ground already, so I’m not going to dive into the details, but what I am going to wonder aloud about is this: Why did it take Apple so long to release an iPod in a rainbow of colors? (Or Nano-Chromatic in Apple speak.)

While Apple was busy doling out doses of iPod five flavors at a time, ColorWare managed to make an entire business out of taking your iPod and adding color to it, and they even charge an extra fee to do so.

It’s obvious that the demand for colors has always existed, as evidenced by Apple’s decision to release their products in various (limited) colors along the way, and the mere existence of ColorWave, so why hasn’t Apple jumped on this bandwagon before?

The world may never know…

…ColorWare lets you customize your guitar?

Guitar Hero

Sure, getting your console colored is all fine and dandy, but if you really want to make an impression at your next gaming get together, pulling out a customized ColorWare Guitar Hero Gibson is definitely one way of doing it.

The company that normally specializes in consoles has taken its talents and applied them to the guitar, and the results are surprisingly good looking.

Everything from the body and the neck to the strum bar and buttons can be customized, so you can rock out in your color scheme of choice.

I just want to paint it black…

…ColorWare continues to paint Apples?


At this point, a new ColorWare lineup is almost non-news, since they just release their new pics as soon as they have time to gather up one of each product and spray away, but I still love the look of the multicolored Apples, so I’m posting this announcement here for the aesthetic appeal more than anything.

Almost makes it so that you can justify the extra cost, doesn’t it?


…ColorWare will customize your iPhone?

ColorWave iPhone

Picked up an iPhone, but you’re already feeling like an iClone?

Then customize your Jesus phone with the ColorWare treatment, giving it an automotive style paint job that is sure to shine.

With 29 color combinations available, and the ability to pick and choose what colors go where, you can create your own work of art for just $149 over the cost of the phone itself.

They’ll even take in your old phone and color it up if you’ve already made the plunge.

…iVue lets you see your iPod?


Apple gives you black and white, and ColorWare will give you the rainbow, but only iPodMods can give you clear. Their new iVue Crystal Clear Panels are hard, resilient, and scratch-resistant cases, allowing you to “see the inner workings of your musical companion” in either 5th Generation Video, 1st Generation Nano, or 4th Generation iPod form. The future of iPod customization is clear.
