I Want You To Want Me

Cheap Trick rocks! There’s no if, and or buts about it. The rock n’ roll band has been pumping out classics since 1977. Leave it to the group to actually record their latest album (coincidentally called The Latest) on 8-track! Remember 8-track? Don’t worry for you newer technology types, it’s also available in MP3 format too :-) Rick Fielder Black and White Checkerboard

One of our colleagues, John, is good friends with the band’s charismatic guitarist, Rick Nielsen. He thought it would be cool to create a custom checkerboard case for Rick’s beloved iPhone 3G. It’s well known that the black and white checkerboard pattern has been Rick’s signature style for nearly thirty years. Don’t even get me started on his awesome lawnmower.

As you can see in the pic below Rick really loved the checkerboard case we made for him. In fact, people around the office liked it so much, we’ve decided to make more to sell on our website. We’ll let you know first thing when they arrive – something tells me they’re gonna go quick!

Leave me a comment here and I’ll let you know as soon as we have them available.

    Hello!

    Hi!

    I just made a loan to someone in Bolivia using a revolutionary new website called Kiva (http://www.kiva.org).

    You can go to Kiva's website and lend to someone across the globe who needs a loan for their business – like raising goats, selling vegetables at market or making bricks. Each loan has a picture of the entrepreneur, a description of their business and how they plan to use the loan so you know exactly how your money is being spent – and you get updates letting you know how the entrepreneur is going.

    The best part is, when the entrepreneur pays back their loan you get your money back – and Kiva's loans are managed by microfinance institutions on the ground who have a lot of experience doing this, so you can trust that your money is being handled responsibly.

    I just made a loan to an entrepreneur named 28 De Julio Group in Bolivia. They still need another $1,900.00 to complete their loan request of $4,950.00 (you can loan as little as $25.00!). Help me get this entrepreneur off the ground by clicking on the link below to make a loan to 28 De Julio Group too:

    It's finally easy to actually do something about poverty – using Kiva I know exactly who my money is loaned to and what they're using it for. And most of all, I know that I'm helping them build a
    sustainable business that will provide income to feed, clothe, house and educate their family long after my loan is paid back.

    Join me in changing the world – one loan at a time.

    Thanks!

    Okay, stupid of me for asking, but are there any of those checkerboard iphone cases left or available? Obviously I'm a day late (and a dollar short) as I FINALLY purchased an iphone recently. It seems like I saw an actual Cheap Trick case advertised once (black with the famous 'cheap trick' type in white scrolled down–) Maybe it was just too much wine, I don't know. Anyway, any info that you may be able to give to me regarding the checkerboard case would be greatly appreciated. Thanks~

    Hi Chuck,
    No stupidity here, it's a great question.
    Congrats on your iPhone. We don't make a branded Cheap Trick case, however
    we do make a black and white checkered case that is Rick Nielsen approved :)

    Go to: http://www.griffintechnology.com/products/elan-… and click
    BUY NOW and you'll see the black and white version of “chess” there.

    I hope this helps. Enjoy your phone!

    Cheers,
    Dave
