Your iPhone Can Look Like An Old Mac
Laura Lee - April 18, 2018


By Shel Silverstein

Lester was given a magic wish
By the goblin who lives in the banyan tree,
And with his wish he wished for two more wishes-
So now instead of just one wish, he cleverly had three.
And with each one of these
He simply wished for three more wishes,
Which gave him three old wishes, plus nine new.
And with each of these twelve
He slyly wished for three more wishes,
Which added up to forty-six -- or is it fifty-two?
Well anyway, he used each wish
To wish for wishes 'til he had
Five billion, seven million, eighteen thousand thirty-four.
And then he spread them on the ground
And clapped his hands and danced around
And skipped and sang, and then sat down
And wished for more.
And more...and more...they multiplied
While other people smiled and cried
And loved and reached and touched and felt.
Lester sat amid his wealth
Stacked mountain-high like stacks of gold,
Sat and counted -- and grew old.
And then one Thursday night they found him
Dead -- with his wishes piled around him.
And they counted the lot and found that not
A single one was missing.
All shiny and new -- here, take a few
And think of Lester as you do.
In a world of apples and kisses and shoes
He wasted his wishes on wishing.

In the past few years, it appears as though society is having some serious trouble deciding which decade we’d most like to bring back – the 80s or the 90s? But truth be told, no matter how hard we try to relive the good old days and experience the nostalgia, all of our new fancy hi-tech gadgets are the epitome of the fact that we are not in the 80s, nor the 90s.

So if you’ve ever struggled with the fact that that your iPhone is just a little bit too modern, Slick Wraps are here to save the day. The skin won’t completely protect your phone from smashing, but it’s fan cutouts, beige color and super iconic rainbow logo will bring you right back to your old Mac computers, where Apple first gained it’s fame.

The vintage skin is suitable for the iPhone 5S and costs $19.84, a completely intentional price.  If this isn’t quite authentic enough for you, then the Colorware custom iPhone 7 + Retro is painted to match the 1980’s look.  The only problem here? It’ll put you back an entire $1899.  Maybe we’ll just stick to the skin and call it a day.
