The folks at ColorWare have been making gadgets look prettier for some time, but in the case of the iPhone 4 they might be taking it a step further: They're trying to confirm it, but their process might include death-grip-proofing.

The whole beautification process is simple: You pick out a color scheme, give ColorWare $250, send them your iPhone 4, and wait for a while. They return your iPhone 4 with a nice paint job and possibly train it how to resist the signal-killing death grip.

The issue everyone raises is the cost.

Is it worth $250 to have a technicolor phone? Seems like a consensus of no (protip: buy a case). Still some people have money like whoa so for them this makes sense. For me, not so much.

Is it a ripoff? For it to be a ripoff, colorware would have to be making an undeserved profit. However dismantling a phone, painting each part, keeping track of all the different phone's parts, not damaging anything...

It just sounds like a pain in the ass and a lot of work. I don't think it is a ripoff.

FWIW, they can paint it a custom Panatone color for just $250 more. OK that's insane.
