Check Out The Iconic Disc: Customizable, Aluminum Magnetic Discs For Your Macbook

May 2nd - via:
I’m generally against mucking up the beautiful, chiseled aluminum that Apple so wonderfully designed on my Macbook Pro. But every once in a while I bend. Usually it’s some clever sticker that plays off of the Apple logo on the lid of the laptop that makes me break. But the “Iconic Disc” by Tony Kern and Jeremiah Johnson might just make me relapse again. Basically, the iconic part of these discs is that there are a ton of of different designs to choose from as well as an option to create your own. Better yet, though, is that they’re not “stickers” – they’re magnets. (Read More)

Customize The Glowing Apple Logo On MacBook To Nth Degree With Iconic Disc

April 15th - via:
Whenever you pop into a library, IT center, or coffee shop, it’s not particularly hard to spot a MacBook. The glowing Apple logo on the back of the machine is unmistakable, and while it does make for a nice aesthetic footnote, it also has an air of the generic about it. There are various stickers one can place over the top of the logo to offer a touch of uniqueness, but considering the cost of an Apple notebook is fairly high in the first place, it’s not surprising consumers are reluctant to begin sticking things to the body of their treasured gadget. (Read More)
