I’m With Cocoa

As Wednesday creeps closer and closer the excitements has become nearly unbearable! Nonethless, Apple Week here marches on with this shirt from the guys that brought us such T-Shirts as iSteamPhone, Exploded 128 and iSteamMac. This new tee features our favorite iCEO, Steve Jobs, with the moniker I’m With Cocoa plastered below his mug.

Now, this one T-Shirt is a bit more for the hardcore Apple Geek because, unless you’ve been a Mac user for a while or are a programmer, chances are that you’re confused with the Cocoa reference.

Of course, the shirt is a parody of the recent influx of I’m With Coco gear in support of Conan O’Brien. But what does Conan have to do with Apple and Steve Job? Nothing, really. Cocoa here is in reference to Apple’s native object-oriented application program environment for the Mac OS X. It is one of five major APIs available for Mac OS X; the others are Carbon, POSIX (for the BSD environment), X11 and Java. And now you know and knowing is half the battle!

I’m With Cocoa was designed by Dwayne Clare and is available now from the I’m With Cocoa shop for $19 and you can even pick up an 18″ x 24″ poster for $19.

Hello and Welcome To Apple Week!

I’m quite sure that many of the regular readers here know that I am a diehard member of the Cult of Mac and I am damn proud of it. Many have speculated that this week Apple will be releasing the long awaited Apple Tablet. Whether it’ll be called the iTablet, iSlate, iPad, or the Jesus Tablet, I have high hopes that it’s going to be AWESOME, AWESOME, AWESOME. And to celebrate I am officially making it Apple Week here at CotyGonzales.com! That’s right, you’ll notice an unusual influx of Apple posting this week – don’t worry, though, you’ll still get your T-Shirt fix – it’ll just be geared towards the Mac side of things!

I’ve got some fun posts planned this week so be on the look out for them! Apple users rejoice because it is looking to be an amazing week. I’m so excited!

Threadless iPhone Cases

Threadless has finally released their much anticipated iPhone cases. The popular tee company hinted at the cases a week ago at the start of their Facebook Fandemonium campaign. A week later, they delivered. Threadless has partnered with the popular Mac and iPod accessory developer, Griffin Technology.

The first set of iPhone cases feature two popular Threadless designs, Birds of the Feather by Ross Zietz and Clouds Within the Thunder by Joe Van Wetering. The new Threadles + Griffin iPhone cases are priced at $34 a piece. They feature the design on the back of the case and the artist information on the inside of the case. The cases themselves are less than 1mm thick.

Hello, I Am iSteamMac

Now, if you were a fan of the iSteamPhone shirt designed by Kevin Tong earlier this year then you’ll absolutely love the iSteamMac. Kevin Tong once again delivers a wonderful illustration with his exploded Mac design, in his familiar steampunk / da Vinci style. This 2-color oversized design is a welcome addition to the exploded family of shirts that mashes up an existing exploded tee, the Exploded 128 by Garry Booth.

If you admire the work of Leonardo da Vinci then this tee might be for you. If you’re a Macintosh fan then this shirt is yet another must have. And if you’re a steampunk fan or builder than this tee would look great while you work on your real life steampunk Mac!

The iSteamMac is available now as a T-Shirt for $20 and as a 18″ x 24″ print. The shirts are printed on American Apparel blanks so you can expect the quality to be top notch.

The Macintosh

Print Liberation recently started a new series of T-Shirts featuring great moments of the twentieth century. The latest shirt in the series features the original Macintosh, circa, 1984. All I have to say is that I picked up this shirt as soon as I saw it for the first time. I love it! And I even own a vintage Macintosh, myself. This shirt makes me feel like dusting off that Mac, popping in the floppy and booting it up. I think I’ll do just that!

You can pick up The Macintosh from Print Liberation for $18.

Beautiful/Decay Summer 2009

My favorite art and culture magazine, Beautiful/Decay, recently released their summer 2009 apparel line and to no surprise they’ve got some pretty fancy stuff! And why not, they only work with the best artist from around the world. Artists that worked on this summer series include: Sakke Soini, Gunsho, and Dekore (just to name a few). The tees are priced at $29.95, which is not bad considering you’ll be walking around with a piece of fine art strapped to your chest.

Split Reason $50 Mac Vs. PC Giveaway

Sigh, this debate may never end. Nonetheless, you can score a $50 Split Reason gift certificate by coming up with the best and humorous logic explaining “why” their platform of choice stands above the other will win. Check out this blog post to see how you can win. Or, if you just want this shirt, you can by Witty Retort straight from SplitReason.com for $18.95.

As for me, the clear choice is the Macintosh platform. I’ve gotten into many heated discussions arguing for the Mac. I have stood by the Apple brand even during the dark years (mid 90’s anyone?). And I’ve converted a ton of friends to switch from PC’s to Mac’s. Simply put, I love the Mac platform and the Apple brand. 

Why a Mac you ask? I’m going to bypass all of the minutiae and skip talking about processors, hardware, RAM, gaming capability (or lack of), buttons on the mouse, GUI, and ease of use. Instead, I’ll make just one simple point. Mac users just seriously love using their computers.

Slide To Unlock by Milk & Eggs Co.

Again, I owe it to Twitter because without it I would not have ever found this tee! I love stumbling across great new brands awesome T-Shirts. Slide To Unlock from Milk & Eggs Co. is just straight up cool. Or, as I put it in a tweet I made about the shirt, “it’s OMFG good!”

This design will probably bring a smile to any iPhone user but will likely resonate most with relationship seeking iPhone owners! You can pick up this shirt from Milk & Eggs Co. for $20, and yes, it is printed on an American Apparel shirt for a cool and comfy feel.
