Void Your Warranty with STYLE!
I just read an article on Wired.com (http://www.wired.com/gadgetlab/2011/09/iphone-mod-apple-logo/) that mentioned a mod, by iPatch, that will light up the Apple logo on the back of your iPhone. If you check out this picture, it looks pretty cool! They do mention at the end of the article that it will most definitely void your warranty, and that makes me pause and think:
WHY WOULD YOU EVER DO THIS?!
You spend a lot of money to get an iPhone, and it does so many cool things already, why void the warranty just so the back lights up? Plus, it only has limited battery life. This will, of course, drain the battery faster. Is it worth having your phone die in the middle of a conversation? For me, the answer is: NO FREAKIN' WAY!
The Marketing Take-away: Legal is always better!
Why would a company waste their time on making unauthorized mods? Focus on making authorized mods instead. Working with a company, especially one like Apple, is a huge advantage to your business, and provides much more industry clout than being "that company that makes mods." I guarantee that iPatch doesn't have as high of a reputation as they might working WITH Apple.
