iPhone Cufflinks and Tie Tacks Now Available

November 20th, 2009

The response to our iPhone earrings was rather overwhelming. After the launch though, everyone made it clear that they wanted jewelry men without pierced ears could wear.


So, today we’re unveiling two new pieces for men; iPhone Cufflinks and Tie Tacks

We’re also including a free gift box with every order until the end of December. See the picture below.

This year give a truly unique gift at a price you can afford!

About The Cufflinks and PowerbookMedic

We fix Mac computers, iPhones, and iPods…a lot of them. Over the years, we’ve amassed a stock pile of non working parts which we refused to send to a landfill. One day while organizing these parts, we got the idea to do something with them, and thus Mac jewelry was born. We have no intention of saving the world with this project, but every little bit helps.

In addition to fixing computers and selling parts, we also provide free take apart videos to show others how to repair their devices. Click to check out the Mac Repair videos.

Have a Mac, iPod, or iPhone you need fixed or upgraded, click to go to our Mac Service center. If you need your top case replaced, we’ll recycle your power button and turn it into an earring, tie tack, or cufflink, for you for free,though it would only be the one.

iPhone 3GS – A One-Stop Shop For Entertainment

November 11th, 2009

Nowadays, it seems as though you can’t go anywhere without hearing about iPhones. In fact, if you walk down the street in any big city, you may feel as though you’re the only one in the world that doesn’t own one. This is partly due to the fact that Apple lowered prices on the first generation of iPhones to make room for their latest groundbreaking smart phone – the iPhone 3GS.

The nearly limitless list of features and amazing apps available for the iPhone 3GS have made it this year’s hottest electronic product, and even a casual glance at what this phone can do shows why. Despite easily fitting in the palm of your hand, the iPhone is so powerful it may threaten to make every other digital device in your life obsolete.

What attracts most people to the revolutionary iPhone 3GS are the amazing multimedia capabilities. Taking a cue from Apple’s earlier hit, the iPod, the iPhone 3GS offers ample built-in memory for music and video storage, giving you the ability to bring your entertainment wherever you go. And just in case you don’t have enough already, you can use the iPhone 3GS to easily access the iTunes store to purchase more, or get suggestions for new music based upon your existing tunes thanks to the Genius feature.

But if you’re in a creative mood and would rather shoot a video than watch one, you’re in luck – the iPhone 3GS has an innovative video recorder that shoots in 30-fps VGA, a format optimized for sharing on the internet. And if everything doesn’t turn out perfect the first time, you can even edit clips right on your iPhone instead of transferring it to a computer first. If you prefer to slow things down and take pictures instead, the iPhone 3GS boasts a three megapixel camera that can focus on any point simply by tapping on the touchscreen. Sharing and editing photos is a breeze too – the device can automatically sync pictures to an iPhoto, Adobe Photoshop Elements or Adobe Photoshop Album on your computer.

Of course, you may be tempted never to touch your computer again once you get your hands on the iPhone 3GS, especially with its internet capabilities. Surf the web on the fastest 3G network available in the powerful Safari web browser. And instead of being forced to view cramped, mobile versions of webpages, the iPhone 3GS allows you to zoom in and see all the details or zoom out to take in the page as a whole. Forgetting a new favorite site is never an issue either, because when you bookmark sites on iPhone, those bookmarks sync with your Mac or PC.

Browsing, though, is just the beginning, because the iPhone 3GS is optimized for email as well. Email clients such as AOL, Gmail, Hotmail, MobileMe and Yahoo! Mail work seamlessly with the device, which also supports a variety of formats for attachments, such as .JPG, .PDF, .DOC, .XLS and .PPT. Simply rotating the iPhone 3GS gives you access to a full touchscreen keyboard for message composition, so you can leave the days of cramped typing on traditional phones behind. And for business applications, the iPhone works with Microsoft Exchange so you can access work email, contacts and calendars without even going near the office.

So if you’re wondering what the fuss is all about – wonder no more. After all, the less time you spend wondering about why everyone has an iPhone 3GS will give you more time to go out and try one for yourself.
