Steve Jobs Venus Yacht: Not Yet Available at the Apple Store

Steve Jobs Venus Yacht: Not Yet Available at the Apple Store
I have never been one for boats or yachts, but even I could be persuaded to give yacht-life a try in this magnificent vessel that was co-designed by the Apple-master himself, Steve Jobs. This was the boat that Steve Jobs was working on until his untimely death in 2011.

Chinese-Built Superyacht Can Be Controlled Via iPad

Chinese-Built Superyacht Can Be Controlled Via iPad
I guess that in the future, everyone will control everything using their tablets. With that in mind, some enterprising manufacturers in China decided to make their latest superyacht controllable via an iPad. I bet this beats your Parrot AR.Drone

Brikk iPhone 4 Case Will Set You Back (at Least) $100,000

Brikk iPhone 4 Case Will Set You Back (at Least) $100,000
The tried-and-tested formula to turn any ordinary and reasonably-priced item into something that’s fit for the filthy rich is as follows: encrust it with several millions worth of diamonds and precious stones, dip it in some good old 24K gold, and you’re all set.

The $229,000 Oscheriyori is the Most Expensive Lunch Box the World Has Ever Seen

The $229,000 Oscheriyori is the Most Expensive Lunch Box the World Has Ever Seen
People who have been born with a silver spoon in their mouths are probably already accustomed to all the luxuries and finer things in life. So I don’t think it would come as a shock if you come across one such silver-spooner who has had a serving of the Oscheriyori, which is the world’s most expensive lunch box – said to be worth ¥18 million yen, or about $234,000 (USD).

If You’ve Got This $60,000 HiCan Bed, You Don’t Need Anything Else In Your Bedroom

If You’ve Got This $60,000 HiCan Bed, You Don’t Need Anything Else In Your Bedroom
What can you buy with $60,000 dollars? A whole lot, obviously. For a lot of folks, that’s a year’s worth of salary, or more. With $60,000, you can put your kids through school, pay your rent, buy a car, go on a vacation, or get a whole new wardrobe and still have some money left at the end.

Necker Nymph: Rent Your Own Underwater Sea Plane from Sir Richard Branson

Necker Nymph: Rent Your Own Underwater Sea Plane from Sir Richard Branson
It’s well established that Sir Richard Branson is both a geek and one of the richest people on Earth. He owns islands and has spent lots of money on commercializing space flight. Overall, he’s the sort of rich geek I wish I could be.

Endless Happiness Pen: Jewel-Encrusted and Worth… What?

Endless Happiness Pen: Jewel-Encrusted and Worth… What?
If I had a million dollars, I’d buy a new car. Maybe I’ll build my puppy a fancy doghouse, like the one Paris Hilton built for her Chihuahuas. Or maybe I’ll invest it in the stock market, maybe open up a franchise of some fast food restaurant.

Awesome Jaguar C-X75 to Have Gas and Electric Power, 800 Horses

Awesome Jaguar C-X75 to Have Gas and Electric Power, 800 Horses
Jaguar has announced that it will be building a small limited edition run of the C-X75 supercar. This car turned up as a concept about a year ago with electric motors in each wheel and jet engines.

The $61,000 Æsir Phone: Hard on Bank Accounts, Soft on Features

The $61,000 Æsir Phone: Hard on Bank Accounts, Soft on Features
Luxury cars, luxury toilets, and luxury watches have all had their run. Now it’s time for a luxury mobile phone to take the stage. And when I say “luxury,” I mostly mean “insanely expensive.” The silver version of these extravagant phones go for £6,400 ($10,560 USD) while the gold-plated one sells for a lofty £37,000 ($61,000).

Kohler Numi $6,400 Toilet: Flush Your Money Away

Kohler Numi $6,400 Toilet: Flush Your Money Away
Last week, Kohler unveiled a $6,400 toilet that will blow your socks off. Seriously though, I can’t fathom paying that amount of money for a toilet. You could buy a used car, or a nice home theater for that kind of cash.

Fancy iPhone Watch Case: Time To Burn Some Money

Fancy iPhone Watch Case: Time To Burn Some Money
While I do appreciate a good iPhone case just like the next person (remember that crazy Griffin Motif case that helped an iPhone 4 survive a 1,000 foot fall?) I honestly can’t understand why people who purchase über-expensive cases for iPhones, knowing full well that if there is a model change, it won’t fit the new one.

Chromos: Safe for Rich Dudes Winds Fancy Watches Automatically

Chromos: Safe for Rich Dudes Winds Fancy Watches Automatically
The most I have ever spent on a watch was about $100, and that was pushing it. I haven’t worn a watch in five years now; I just use my smartphone for the time. The rich folks out there like their fancy watches though and need a place to keep all those watches safe from thieves along with their other fancy stuff.

Vincent Audio C-60 CD Player is C-Razy Expensive

Vincent Audio C-60 CD Player is C-Razy Expensive
There are lots of things that I would squander $5,000 on and not think twice about. Most people would probably think these things were a waste of money. None of the ways to part $5K from my wallet has anything to do with music though.

The Ultimate Million Dollar Speaker: Sign Me Up for Two!

The Ultimate Million Dollar Speaker: Sign Me Up for Two!
Let me start out by saying that my entire 5.1 home theater sound system cost less than $1,000 bucks, so the thought of paying $1,000,000 for a single speaker is about as foreign a concept to me as Paris Hilton spending $325k on a dog house.

Go Away World, Leave Me Alone: Ovei Personal Multimedia Environment

Go Away World, Leave Me Alone: Ovei Personal Multimedia Environment
The Oculas Groups’ Ovei (Oh-vee) is a living room in a pod. A very stylish, air conditioned and ridiculously expensive pod. It’s elegantly designed by Lee McCormack and beautifully engineered by McLaren Applied Technologies. Which makes me wonder why there are no images of the ovei’s interior on the product website.

IPhone 3g Kings Spits in the Face of the Economic Crisis

IPhone 3g Kings Spits in the Face of the Economic Crisis
For me luxury items are those that are not only ridiculously expensive but are also very impractical or unnecessary. Personally I think the iPhone is still quite expensive. I think it spreads itself too thin in trying to be too many things at once.
