Inspired by a cord covered kitchen counter, MagSkin’s humble beginnings centered around a hobby project for friends. MagSkin’s founder took a small sheet of adhesive magnet and applied it to the back of an iPhone. Following encouraging words from admirers, MagSkin headed to Kickstarter to find interested investors.
MagSkin successfully raised $2,000 more than necessary with 353 backers. Now, we can all enjoy slapping our iPhone on any magnetic surface and five lucky winners will be able to take one home for free… Read More

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
