I’d love to see a price increase. I doubt a $5 or $10 increase would hurt profits because the themes would still be a bargain. Slightly higher price = slightly less sales (maybe) = same profit = less support burden = more time to make more and better themes = more profit in the end. Yeah?

You know, earlier I said I had just ordered a new PC because I couldn’t justify the cost difference between a Windows machine and a Mac. Well, let me just say that my shiny new “performance” PC came and then it went straight back into the box (waiting for FedEx as I type). I don’t expect a Mac to be perfect but I imagine it will at least boot properly? Hopefully my experience with Apple won’t be as disappointing as it has been with Dell, HP and Microsoft over the last several years.

Just saying, everything is made in china, not just Macs.

That’s for sure. My point is that they are fantastic marketers and one example is in saying “Designed in California” which sounds very trendy and is probably sometimes even mistaken for “Made in USA ”. It’s like how in Texas every Toyota Tundra comes with a sticker that says “Made in Texas by Texans”. Otherwise, many Texans won’t buy a foreign sounding full-size truck (even if the parts of American cars are just as foreign as any other). Genius marketing.

I’m waiting for the day I see a Microsoft sticker on the back of a car.

And waiting… =P

I was considering an iMac but ended up buying a Windows 7 machine because I felt as if I was basically going to pay $1,000 more for OS X and at the same time lose the peace of mind of having a tower I can service myself if need be.

I do like what I hear about the reliability of a Mac so if Apple ever comes out with a Mac in tower form but with specs closer to a high end iMac rather than the Mac Pro, I’ll look again. The price might be right.

PS. “Designed in California” is fancyspeak for “Made in China”

This sounds neat. Will have to check it out when it goes live.

What reputable theme customization services do you guys know of?

I just had my first WordPress theme approved and lo and behold I get my first customer who wants a customization. Great! But I don’t have time and would like to have a list of developers that I can refer my customers to in the future.

I just saw RedFactory’s Themecustomizers post but it’s not quite ready (sounds cool) and I know of Werkpress. What else is out there?

Thank you.

If you’re speaking of Modernize by GoodLayers, they provide support on their own forum. You can find a link to it on the theme info page.

I’ve been using Notepad++ for as long as I can remember. Curious about Sublime Text now…
