A Joke iPhone Sticker Turns Into a Business
By Dane Carlson on January 20, 2013 in Humor
The funniest jokes are the ones that turn into successful businesses, like Antenn-Aid.
After Apple’s iPhone 4 press conference last week, Szymon Weglarski and Jon Dorfman, two designers from Brooklyn, decided they would have a little fun with the iPhone 4’s antenna problem.
They designed tiny bandages that fit perfectly around the edge of the iPhone, opened a store on the marketplace site Etsy, and named their new product Antenn-aid. Now the two partners are rushing to keep up with orders.
“We put the site up late Friday night and we’re getting a new order every minute,” Mr. Dorfman said.
