ZAGG Invisible Shield: Making gadgets fugly over time

I have the propensity to glorify my gadgets the way I deify my science icons like Hubble, Einstein, Sagan, Hawking, and Kaku. The level of glorification goes as much as to overprotect them like how a Mom to his children(or since I don't have a maternal instinct, I better have to use the analogy of shepherd and a herd of sheep).


All my gadgets are protected with the most utmost care-- from display protector, surge protector, keyboard protector and all sort of protective shield I can get.


In an effort to protect them, we either bought unwisely some items that we ended up not using because for one, they hamper the functionality of your devices. How many of you bought keyboard protector but ended up having a hard time typing as the silicon cover impedes your typing speed. How many of you bought iPhone cases that rendered useless because some buttons will not work anymore. To think that I only bought branded items and accessories, I could have minimized this unfavorable fate.


Secondly they look fugly over time. Just look at this iPod Touch 4th Gen and how ugly it has become because the supposed military-grade material ZAGG Invisible Shield that would have protected it from bumps and scratches appeared UGLY at the course of wear and tear. It is thicker than Gmask but my Gmasked item still survived up to this day. The longest running Gmask protection I had was almost 5years now. Only the reinforced protection at the gutter was removed but it still looks good and astutely fitting, not the unappealing, worn out, and detached lateral sides to corners.


Avoid spending a thousand bucks for this.

  1. FUGLY! I love that word...

    Yes, I hate keyboard protectors because they reduce my speed to 30 wpm! When I am originally a 70-75!

  11. Oooh, sayang pera! Buti na lang my friend didn't have her Macbook "protected" there, we found it waaay overpriced in the first place.

  12. @Madz: buti nalang. otherwise if you must, just go for the Gmask. my Gmas since 2006 is still a beauty and doing its job fairly well of protecting my Acer lappie.
