iSkin Brasil

Danny, you thought GelaSkins are cool, check out the good looking skins from iSkin Brasil – Sixteen Brazilian artists, organized by art promoters/non-profit group Aprendiz, each came up with a design that was translated by iSkin into covers, figuring iPods and laptops are an easy way for consumers to inject art into their daily lives. Themes run from Japan to São Paulo’s hopelessly polluted Tiete river, portrayed with lots of imagination, color and fertile talent.

Unfortunately, you can only buy them through the country’s FNAC — but with a little ingenuity (and possibly a friend who speaks Portuguese) you can manage to order one online.

Apple Watch

There’s a lot of stuff going on in Cupertino. Here’s a digest:

Apple’s lowering their prices in the near future.

This will result in higher sales and lower margins, hence their stock price took a recent dive. But look for lower laptop prices (paired with iPhone deals) as the company goes after the back-to-school set next month.

The company’s keeping mum on Jobs’ health.

We feel bad even discussing this one, because we realize that another human being’s health condition is simply none of our business. Investors who’ve sunk money into the company and who know it will not be the same without Jobs see it differently.

Apple’s got a new “something” coming out soon.

There’s speculation that it may be a new product entirely, like a touchscreen tablet computer.

MobileMe service is a MobileMess.

Service outages and people can’t get e-mail. The “halo effect” is getting pierced by devil’s horns.

iPhone is iScarce.

You thought out-of-stock in 38 U.S. states was bad? All of Germany is reportedly out until October.

iPhone apps downloads hit 25 mil.

There’s an app more popular than MySpace, Facebook and AOL: it turns your iPhone into a flashlight. Also, everyone and their brother has a “Top Ten iPhone Apps” article out there. We’ll round them up for you in a future digest.

Limited Edition Engraved iPods Featuring The Simpsons

The Simpsons Shop is now selling a collection of various sized iPods featuring one of three different custom engravings on the back including a ‘Bart Sk8′ logo, Homer saying D’Oh! and a ‘Homer Tested’ insignia. The available models include the iPod Classic in 160 or 80GB sizes, the iPod Nano in 8 or 4GB sizes, the iPod Shuffle in 2 or 1GB sizes and the iPod Touch in 32, 16 or 8GB sizes. Each iPod is limited to 2,000 pieces and is numbered on the back. You can also opt to have your name engraved on the back too, but keep in mind that could probably hinder any attempts to sell the player down the line.

The Simpsons-themed iPods appear to cost a bit more than the regular versions, which makes sense because of the engraving and licensing costs, but would it have been so hard to throw a couple episodes on the video capable models? Such a bad marketing decision….
