    ordered mine in gold. i have a space grey iphone 6 but the black and gold looked too sharp to pass up. and honestly the pics online made the silver and space grey look too similar to me. after actually seeing the space grey in the store, i can tell the difference but i am still glad i went with gold, for me it is just a nice change of pace from everything silver and grey.

    Space Grey seems to be a very nice color for Laptops. To bad the logo on back doesn't light up anymore, would really pop on the darker color.

    That would be my second choice. . . . You'll have to give us an update, once you've used it for a bit.

    With infinite number of awesome apps doing the rounds, it is quite difficult to convince users to download an app. Instead of working towards a paid app, it is a good idea to work towards app monetization. Thereís no doubt that app advertisers and publishers have to invest money to start earning money, but knowing what works best is the key. Here are few ideas of app promotion. Pick and choose what works for they best.

    In App Advertising

    In app advertising is a way to monetize their windows apps or Mac apps by allowing adverts to popup in the app. They can use text ads, video ads, display ads, interactive ads and even sponsored content. This method is fairly easy to try, modify and measure and quite popular.

    Pay Per Install

    Another popular windows apps marketing method is teaming up with software firms that pay for every successful installation from within their apps. Usually adverts are displayed for users and they get paid when someone installs the software. This method works for most and can be combined with other methods.


    Donations donít make a lot of money, but when they offer a unique service of value, users consider donating a few dollars for their efforts. Though they wonít make a lot of money this way, some do adopt this method.

    In App Purchases

    Another popular app monetization method is promoting in app purchases. The idea is very simple Ė they create an app and offer a few basic features and the other features they can unlock with a payment. However, this works only when they offer something of real value for customers. If yes, the conversions are good.

    Affiliate Marketing

    Many choose affiliate marketing as a way to promote app. Basically, they choose relevant and related products to promote with this method. However, you should first choose the affiliate deal and then work around it for creating an app to suit it, to earn real revenue with this method.

    Sell Customer Details

    Though not many do this at least openly, with a good user base this does earn they a few dollars. However, they will have to wait before they can do this and they will need more details like demographics, location, hobbies, social profile details, etc.

    Partner Up:

    Bundling up their app with other related services for revenue-sharing model or teaming up with a service that offers a subscription thatís related are a few ways to monetize app.

    Sell the Source Code

    While it might be difficult to get someone buy their apps, there are firms that buy codes and then tweak, rebrand and sell it at a premium. If they are ok to part with their code, they can try this option.

    Some also prefer selling their app, requesting for crowdsourcing or startup funding, etc. In-app advertising, in-app purchases and affiliate marketing are methods many opt for. What app monetization method works for they is something they have try and determine.

    I went with the Space Gray because my iPhone 6 is SG, my Apple Watch is SG, my Apple TV is black and my iPad is SG.

    I decided to buy the new MacBook just for the sheer portability. However, I just can't decide which color to choose! They all look awesome. Which is your favorite?

    Silver., That been said I have one of those 'Speck' black cover and it does look awesome in black imo, then when I get tired of it I just go back to the silver look in a heartbeat.
