Up to a few months ago, you would have had to pay me to put a skin on my iPhone. I used to think that it looked tacky and cheap. There was no way I would ever want to put one of those stickers on my beloved iPhone or iPad. That’s until I met the fine folks of iCarbons.
I quickly changed my mind when Rosa from iCarbons started connecting with me on Twitter. Because we are both JailbreakCon sponsors, we started talking more and more and she offered to send me a few free skins just so I can have a feel of what they look like and what they are.
The rest is history – read my review for full details. I got hooked immediately by the quality and look of their skins. I got hooked so badly that I currently have 2 iPhones, 2 iPads and my MacBook Air sporting iCarbons skins.
Because I want to make sure everyone of you gets a chance to enjoy an iCarbons skin, we’ve set up this awesome giveaway for you… Read More

The folks at GelaSkins emailed us yesterday to let us know that their eReader skins are now shipping in a velvety matte finish. The new skins blend with the page-like screens of eReaders and eliminate glare associated with the signature gloss finish.

To celebrate their new finish though, GelaSkins was kind enough to provide us with two $40 gift codes to give away to our loyal readers… Read More
