Even before I ever dreamed of writing and taking pictures for a living — I’ll just pause here to let my fellow journalists and bloggers finish laughing hysterically at the idea that earnings from journalism could be considered “a living” — I rocked one of those photographer’s jackets. You know the one — zippers and pockets everywhere. I was a Geek King in the jacket, but I didn’t care; it let me carry all my gizmos and, yes, sometimes even photography gear.
Only the most wizened, old-school photographers use those vests anymore. And there are far better ways to shlep a quiver of gadgets — like the magnetic-sleeved, 22-pocket, Personal Area Network-equipped Tropiformer by Scottevest. Oh yeah.
This is the C.VOX, a coat with a built-in sound system so you can listen to stuff anywhere you go, while you’re going there. It’s kind of cool and kind of weird. I’ve been wearing it for the last wintry week or so here in the UK, and here’s what it’s like to own one.
If you’ve ever thought it would be a whole lot of fun to visit Apple’s Cupertino campus, let us assure you that there’s really not all the much you can do there. Sure, you can walk around Infinite Loop like a creepy stalker hoping to spot Jony Ive or Tim Cook, but you probably won’t. The one thing you can do, though, is visit The Company Store on campus and buy a t-shirt or other souvenirs.
Apple makes great phones and computers, but their apparel line leaves a bit to be desired. Here are all the shirts that you can buy from The Company Store when you visit Apple’s campus.
Now you can look like you;re playing with yourself as you innocently use your phone.
Alphyn Industries’ DELTA415 Wearcom jeans may as well have been called the Dork-O-Tron 3000, for they are nerdy in the extreme. They are also flat-out awesome, and if I was the kind of person who spent $160 on a pair of jeans, then I’d be al over them. Or all in them, I guess.
The Wearcoms are simple: the front right pocket has been replaced by a see-through phone pouch, complete with a protective flap to cover it.
Apple’s Lisa – now there was a proper computing machine. But, though she was one of Steve Job’s most sexy creations, she was also one of Apple’s biggest commercial failures due to her astronomic $10,000 price tag (10k!). We fancied her though, as any true Apple fan would, so put her cutting-edge, dual-floppy good-looks on a tee you’ll be proud to wear over your torso.
Cult of Mac’s new In Love With Lisa tee is perfect for you or the Apple fan in your life (bonus if that fan’s name is Lisa!). Remind the world of a time when Apple computers were big, boxy, and downright uncouth!
Our new tee is crafted from 100% super-soft cotton, ships worldwide, and is available right now. We’re already half sold out, grab yours now over at MightTees.com.
The Apple Lisa computer was one of Steve Jobs’s finest creations, but her cosmic $10,000 price tag made her harder to sell than the Newton. We liked her vintage style though, so we partnered with Seattle indie brand Might Tees to make her good looks available again on our new In Love With Lisa graphic tee.
Our new tee is finely crafted and printed right here in the beautiful USA, and is available now for only $25. Get one for yourself or for your cousin in Kazahkstan — these fine garments ship worldwide!
Can there be any clearer way to say “Don’t breed with me” to a lady than to wear these dorky keyboard jeans? Named Beauty and the Geek, the QWERTY-toting pants come from Dutch design duo Erik de Nijs and Tim Smit, who look like pretty normal guys. The pants, however, seem designed less for wearing and more for tech bloggers to write jokes about.
The probability of you obnoxiously yelling “shooow meee the moneeeeyyyy!!!” into your cell phone will undoubtedly climb as you slide our new Cult of Mac tee over your torso. This fine garment is 100% Jerry Maguire-approved and 100% Apple-inspired.
Unisex Tees are finely crafted right here in the USA, are limited in quantity, and are just $22 each. Even better, they’re available to ship worldwide. You can pick up our new tee and other fruit-inspired graphic tees right now over at MightTees.com.
Okay, we’re stretching it a bit with the headline, but we couldn’t resist: Apple has just sent a shut down notice to an online retailer called iPopMyBaby that sells nothing but onesies and diapers featuring Apple’s products: namely, the iPod clickwheel and iPhone homescreen.
