Awesome and Useless award of the week goes to GelaSkins.com for their iphone, ipod touch, mac book (and everything else apple) covers! These thin, shiny and colorful skins are a protective layer of plastic that you slap on (or in most mac user's case, lovingly attach with much anal attention to detail and perfect placement) to your apple item and watch that item go from sleek and sophisticated, to fun and fantastic.
For those who are worried, these skins come right off without any trouble. It doesn't leave behind any residue or even the slightest smudge, making it even easier to buy multiple designs and switch them at your fancy. The skins are reusable, so they'll last forever as long as you aren't eating, tearing or slicing them for fun. As a perk, with the iPod Touch your skin also comes with a clear cover for your touch screen which will shield it from fingerprints and inadvertent scratches, as well as free download-able wallpaper so that your home screen matches your skin. Note: they are not a replacement for cases, they are simply rad little slipcovers for your geeky gadgets.
At $14.99 a pop, one may balk at the idea of such a small piece of plastic costing so much. But in the end, isn't that a large part of the apple lover's creed? We pay more for the style and innovation that companies like apple produce. And how does GelaSkins fit into that ideal? Same as their skins fit onto my iPod... perfection.
