4 New Threadless X Griffin iPod Touch Cases

Threadless and Griffin have just released 4 new iPod Touch Cases, featuring 4 classic Threadless designs. The Gaming Revolution by Sean Mort is one of my favorite Threadless designs – ever. Space Needs Color by Alvaro Arteaga Sabaini looks absolutely stunning as an iPhone case design. Put The Needle On The Record was never a Threadless favorite of mine (maybe because of the raised ink used on the tee), but as an iPhone Case design, it just works.

Unlike previous Threadless X Griffin cases, the new batch is made specifically for the iPod Touch. If I had to guess as to why this is case, I would say that it has something to do with the rumors of a new iPhone being released sometime in early June.

The cases are available now from Griffin Technology for $34.99 a piece. Each of the T-Shirts are also available from Threadless for $18 (Space Needle is priced at $20).

Tweetie, I Officially Heart You

WARNING: This is not a T-Shirt post! It’s a solution to a problem that I have taken months to solve and thought I’d share it here so that people searching Google for a solution to the same problem can now find one.

I consider myself a Twitter power user, I use the service a lot and I love it! One of the best things about Twitter are the clients that you can use when you’re away from your browser, like when you’re on the go and only have your iPhone. I’ve tried many a Twitter apps for the iPhone. Up until last week I mainly used a combination of Twitterrific and Twittelator. On the desktop side of things I’ve been using Tweetie for Mac for months.

The ONLY reason why I have not installed Tweetie on the iPhone up until a week ago was due to aesthetics. I have been miffed by the fact that the avatar (little icon associated with  your account)/Twitter profile image for my @cotygonzales account does not appear in the Tweetie application, whereas the profile image for my @CallMeThirsty account does appear within the application. The missing profile image issue has been a problem for a while now amongst Tweetie users. The folks over at Tweetie blame Twitter for cache-ing images for a lengthy time.

Nonetheless, I decided to give the Tweetie app a try a week ago. I installed the app and guess what, my profile image for my @cotygonzales account was missing, while my profile image for my other account was present. No surprise there. The app worked great, awesome in fact – but this little aesthetic mishap left me feeling sad.

A Google search brought up a few solutions: 1. replace my Twitter profile image by uploading a new one, 2. wait a few weeks for Twitter to cache your new image, 3. uninstall Tweetie and reinstall on the Mac/iPhone. I had tried solutions 1 and 2 a few months ago when trying to find a solution for my Tweetie Mac client. Neither worked. I didn’t want to go through the hassle of uninstalled and reinstalled Tweeting on my iPhone (the solution didn’t fix the missing profile image when done on the Mac client).

The left is before the fix. On the right you can see that after the fix my profile image shows up just fine!

This is Tweetie for iPhone. The gray boxes indicate that my Twitter profile image is missing!

So the solution? Ironically, I found a solution that worked for me by doing a quick Twitter Search. It was a pretty simple fix. All you need to do is:

1. Click on your existing profile image within Twitter in your browser.

2. Now you should see the larger version of your image. Save that image to your desktop.

3. Delete your existing profile image on Twitter.

4. Re-upload the exact same image that you just downloaded from Twitter (I changed the file name before I uploaded).

5. Wait. I waited about 2 hours.

6. Twitter profile image mystically appears in Tweetie on both the Mac client on the on the iPhone App.

This solution is so odd to me since I ‘ve tried on many occasions to just upload a new image and it never worked. But somehow, when you download your existing image and then re-upload that, it works (for me it did anyways).

Now that this solution fixed the problem of the missing profile image, I can officially say that I totally love this iPhone app! The ability to have multiple accounts is a huge plus and the user interface is just straight up sexy as hell and so very intuitive.

This was the solution that worked for me. Hopefully it works for you. If not, let’s hope that Tweetie finds some kind of workout for future releases. Good luck fellow Twitter users!

And just so you T-Shirt fans don’t feel left out, here’s a shirt that fits right in there with the topic we just discussed. It’s the “You Don’t Know Me” Anonymous Twitter Shirt and it features the the default Twitter profile icon given to users who haven’t uploaded their own picture. Pick one up now for the cheap price of $9.99.

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.
