Jobs > Gates

Steve Jobs > Bill Gates. Steve Jobs is greater than Bill Gates. Steve Jobs. UNDRCRWN got it right with this shirt. I absolutely love it. I adore it. I admire it. It speaks the truth. And as a longtime Apple nut I can believe that. As a MacAddict that stood by Apple even when Steve wasn’t arount, I can believe that. As a MacHead that cheered when Steve Jobs returned as iCEO and proceeded to resuscitate a near bankrupt company, I can believe that.

Steve Jobs created and innovated. Steve Jobs conceptualized products that changed the world. Steve Jobs redefined multiple industries. Bill Gates simply made sloppy copies.

UNDRCRWN1 got it right. Jobs > Gates is available now from UNDRCRWN for $28.

1. Jobs > Gates is actually a part of UNDRCRWN’s Greater Than Series. They also have a Jay > Wayne T-Shirt, which is awesome, and then I saw this. Disappointed!

Threadless Holiday Gift Guide 2011

It’s that time of the year again! You know, the time of the year when you go out and buy a lot of cool stuff for your friends and family for Christmas! But who said you have to “go out” and leave the comforts of your own home to get cool stuff. Stay home, sip on some hot cocoa while listening to holiday music, and do all of your holiday shopping online at Threadless! This is 2011, after all. Mall shopping is like, so passé.

Not sure what to buy from Threadless? I know, I know, they’ve got tons of amazing stuff – but what should you spend your hard earned cash on? That’s were I come in to help. The friendly peeps over at Threadless asked me to put together a list of my favorite Threadless items. And of course I said hell yeah! Now, you don’t have an excuse to not pick something up from this Chicago based purveyeur of goodness.

If you stumbled on this blog via Twitter, Facebook or elsewhere then welcome! Please feel free to peruse the site and if you like what you see then I’d recommend adding Co-Tee TV as a friend on Facebook so that you can stay up-to-date on future posts!

T-Shirts! This is Threaless’ bread and butter. If anything, pick up a Threadless tee and relish the comfy fit. I’ve picked three of my favorites for you: Stereotype Cereal by Dina Prasetyawan, Retold with Unicorns by Branko Ricov and Jonah Block, and Optimust by Phil Jones. Price: $18.

It doesn’t get all that chilly in Hawaii. Ah yes, HAWAII! But whem it does, I love to wear hoodies and Threadless has got some awesome hoodies! They’ve got the zip kind and the non-zip kind – you choose! If you feel like exposing your inner Michael Cera then pick up a Threadless hoodie! My two picks are Traditional Greeting by Paulo Bruno and The Pen is Mightier than the Sword by Clarice Crawford. Price: $29.

Over the last year, Threadless has released some real drool worthy accessories, including backpacks, totes, water bottles, and laptop/iPad cases. You’ve got something for every geek, nerd, foodie, artist, hippie and almost any other kind of person that you can think of. And although there are tons to choose from, these are my favorites.

I Be Au Sm is one of my all-time favorite Threadless designs. And now, they’v got it in Backpack form. Love it! Price: $59.

I’ve got a thing for good typography. And so I was drawn to Budi Satria Kwan’s ampersand themed Peace and Love. Price: $15.

Threadless Stuff on Thermos Stuff = double rainbow cool. Yes! When these first came out I rushed to Target to pick my favorite up. Which was my favorite you ask? Well, of course it was the iconic Funkalicious by Christopher Golebiowski. Price: $15.

Another iconic design that made it onto a Threadless accessory is the Tom Burns design, The Communist Party! It’s Christmas, let’s party! But first, if we’re going to party hard then we need to protect our precious iPhones! Why not do it in Threadless style? Price: $19.

If you’re buying an iPhone case for a fellow tehnogeek, then you may also want to consider picking up a laptop or iPad case. Why do boring black when you can do Threadless fun? These cases will have you covered! I suggest Liquid Shot and Sugar Skull. Price: $39-$54.

Finally, for those of you looking to pick up a grab bag gift or some stocking stuffers, consider these fancy little Threadless Dooodle Packs! They’re perfect for your doodle needs. Price: $9.

Homage To Steve Jobs: Stay Hungry Stay Foolish

As a longtime MacAddict and Apple enthusiast, I really don’t need to explain why I absolutely love this T-Shirt.

Stay Hungry Stay Foolish is available now from Homage for $28.

“Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma — which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most importantly, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.”

– Steve Jobs

Steve Jobs by Walter Isaacson

I am totally absorbed in this book. For a second, I thought about buying it from Amazon for use on the Kindle app for iPad. However, I realized that THAT would be wrong. So iBookstore it was. Don’t worry though, I am getting a hardcover version of the book just because. And that I will get from Amazon.

I hope to get a review of this book up soon. I’m still debating as to how I should go about doing that. Maybe I’ll highlight my favorite parts from each chapter across multiple posts. We will see. In the meantime, get your hands on this book.

Buy from Amazon or the iBookstore.

I miss you Steve.

Co-Tee TV Episode 67: iSteamMac, Teezeria and Bang-On

In this episode of Co-Tee TV I wear iSteamMac by Kevin Tong and review Multislacking Slacker by Teezeria, a made-to-order T-Shirt company based out of Chicago, Illinois.

You can also watch this episode on Vimeo, Viddler, YouTube, blip.tv and download and sync all episodes to your iPod or iPhone by subscribing for free to Co-Tee TV in the iTunes Store.

Coty’s Thoughts:

Multislacking-Slacker by Teezeria. Pros: Super fun design! Have a slacker in your life? Or maybe you’re a self-proclaimed slacker. If so then this is the shirt for you! Because Teezeria prints their tees on demand, you have the freedom to choose any color shirt you’d like the design printed on. One of the best parts about receiving a T-Shirt from Teezeria is the custom pizza box like packaging. The designs are printed on American Apparel tees so you know you are getting a quality shirt. T-Shirt also came with specific washing instructions so you know how to handle the direct-to-garment print. Cons: The main drawback of doing on demand direct-to-garment prints is that the prints don’t come out as soft as some of the screen printed tees do. For instance, the Multislacking Slacker print had somewhat of a vinyl like feel to it. The positive is that the print tends to soften up afte the first wash. Price: $20.

iSteamMac by Kevin Tong. Pros: As a true MacHead, I can tell you that any Mac fanatic would be thrilled to receive and wear iSteamMac. This da Vinci like print features a two color design on a cream American Apparel T-Shirt. The perfect shirt for any Apple fanboy. Price: $20.

Co-Tee TV Episode 59: Might Tees, Regal Clothing and Popeye

In this episode of Co-Tee TV I wear I Heart Mario and review Popeye Punch by Regal Clothing Co. a brand started in 2008 by Darren Millar as a way to quench his need for new tees.

Coty’s Thoughts:

Popeye Punch by Regal Clothing. Pros: T-Shirt comes packed in a square cardboard box. Included in the package were some awesome goodies, including, a badge shaped bottle opener and pieces of candy. Also included in the package was a beanie, however, I doubt all shirts come with a beanie (I’m just special, like that!). The T-Shirt, although not an American Apparel tee, was very soft to the skin and fit very well. The print was also very soft – no heavy ink here! Classic cartoon fans will probably rejoice if given this shirt! Cons: None really. The only thing I can think off that would turn people off would probably be the mixture of pink and yellow. You’ll either love it or hate it, but, I think you’ll love it! Price: £17.50 (Use Code IHEARTREGAL for 10% off your entire purchase).

Popeye Punch Regal Clothing

The One by Might Tees. Pros: Super comfortable shirt, very soft. Print is unbelievable soft, it’s as if it was built right into the fabric. Apple fans will enjoy this shirt, especially if they’re an old school Apple fan. Cons: The price is a bit hefty, but, you already pay the Apple premium for your computers, why not for a quality T-Shirt? Price: $27.99.

In this episode of Co-Tee TV I wear I Visited The Mothership by Apple, Inc. and review Say Anything (Steve Jobs) by Might Tees, a Seattle based T-Shirt company with a passion for sci-fi flicks, technology, Star Wars, samwise gamgee, Steve Wozniak, and making cool shirts.

Coty’s Thoughts:

Say Anything (Steve Jobs) by Might Tees. Pros: Super soft shirt! Might Tees uses Alternative Apparel organic shirts along with water-based inks so the print is nice and soft as well. Shirt comes packaged in a nice eco-friendly box made from recycled cardboard and is wrapped in recycled paper. Perfect shirt to get for any Apple geek – especially one that worships at the church of Steve Jobs. Cons: My only con for this shirt would be the wide neck opening, other than that – love it! Price: $26.99

Say Anything by Might Tees

I Visited The Mothership by Apple, Inc. Pros: If you ever visit the Apple Headquarters then you must get your hands on this shirt  because you wont be able to find it elsewhere (except maybe on eBay for an inflated price). It makes for the perfect conversation starter. I guarantee that every time you wear this shirt people will ask: where’s the mothership? Cons: Makes me feel like an Apple retail store employee – just a little bit. Price: $16.

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.
