If you've got some time on your hands and never really liked your MacBook anyway, then you should think about dying it. Not only will it ruin your laptop's iconic design, it also takes hours to do.
So much news passes before our collective eyes every day that we couldn't possibly cover it all. Mostly because much of it isn't worth covering! But here are a some borderline tidbits we passed on, just in case.
Most times, I don't mind Colorware's spray-painted gadgets. Sure, they're pricey, but I'm all for a premium gloss over otherwise identikit products. But the MacBook Air? No. Just no. Prices start at $1,850 for Air + paint-job. [Colorware]
I installed a ColorWare Grip on my iPad earlier. It's lovely: milled from solid aluminum and surprisingly comfortable to use one-handed. I intended to write a cheery post about it until I saw the price: $300. Is that a joke?
N.E.R.D. frontman Pharrell Williams blogged that he "couldn't resist a black iPad" on a trip to Parisian store Colette. The black ColorWare iPad (cost? $900!) is his second one, the first robed in a Louis Vuitton case. That's just greedy.
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.

Fans of the Segway (such as Steve Wozniak) are no longer restricted to just black, white or sage alternative-walking-devices. Now, they can ColorWare the shit out of their i2 models!
ColorWare's now accepting orders for painted HDTVs, however there's a small catch—you can't send in the one you already own, instead you've got to order the whole shebang through them. Now you can color-coordinate with your carpet! [ColorWare]
There's several things wrong with this. One: painting over the sleek aluminum with plastic? Hideous. Two: $400? Really? That could (almost) buy another iPad. Three: Three weeks? Without your iPad? Ugh. [Colorware]
You can add the Nook and Nexus One to the roll-call of Colorware patients from today, with the usual assortment of colorful paints being applied.
This $6000 Colorware MacBook Pro isn't just impressive because of its price, it's impressive because it looks like what a real matte black MacBook Pro from Apple would look like.
If you don't want a plain black Nintendo DSi, Colorware is more than happy to take your money to customize yours however you wish. Above, you can see my creation: "Vomitus Easterus." Lovely, no?
We've covered Colorware's professional gadget painting in the past—and were more than satisfied after seeing their work close up, but their latest iPod coloring seems to be more than just cosmetic. The iPod Touch 2G color-coats the shiny silver metallic back with a color layer, which most likely handles fingerprints…
If there's a gadget that can use a new coat of paint, Colorware is almost always on the scene first (with pretty good results). But if there's ever been a gadget just begging for color, it's the iPhone 3G and its glossy, plastic back. For $150, Colorware will give you that burst of backside color you've always wanted,…
