I get the point of having gold or diamond-studded jewelry, or even watches. Those things have timeless appeal. But re-forming an iPod’s body out of solid 18ct rose gold and then adding platinum and diamonds to it is plain dumb. And I’m not even concerned about the durability of the product – obviously the people are way above such mortal concerns – all I’m saying is this thing will look dumb in a few years. Honestly it looks dumb now, perhaps even dumber now that it’s been pimped.
Then again it’s from the same dude who made a gold-plated fat PS3, so I guess gadgets are his thing. Are you the servant of an insanely rich gadget freak? Tell him about this post, and direct him to Stuart Hughes’ website.
The ostentatious iPod costs £59,995 (approx. $94, 400 USD), but who cares right? It’s made out of gold! Run to your master for there are only 10 of these! The servants of his friends read our site too you know.
