How does all that bling affect reception?
The fanbois among you who haven't spunked all your wad on sex toys may be interested in flashing the cash on the iPhone 4G Diamond Edition - an absolute snip at £12,995. The iPhone 4 Diamond Edition The Apple blingphone is described as "another masterpiece" from Liverpool-based Stuart Hughes. The blurb explains: "The whole …
Is Ostrich foot proven to be a better antenna insulator than the standard Apple case offering?
I've no idea what the global population of Ostriches is, but if that multiplied by two is exceeded by the number of fanbois, the bloody things could be endangered.
Or in wheelchairs at least.
Paris, that other well-known flightless bird.
"There is no finer, purer, or rarer gem than the diamond"...
Umm actually there are many gems rarer then diamonds. When discussing gem rarity, diamonds are about as abundant as fat people at an all you can eat buffet, in comparison to most gems that is...
If it was so rare, you wouldnt see every chav wearing it, would you? I mean you dont see Sapphire bling everyday do you?
Diamonds are in greater demand than things like benitoite or taaffeite which run half or less than the price of diamonds and yet are much rarer. Then again you've never see an ad saying benitoite is a girl's best friend. I imagine the good salesman would say that each diamond is unique and therefore just as rare as every other unique gemstone, you know in the way you tell the kids... just like everybody else.
...seems to be the only way to obtain the unobtainable white iPhone, at any rate.
I've got to say, despite how ridiculous this is, it's at least nice to see one of these 'luxury' phones loaded with software designed around usability. Nothing depresses me more than seeing thousands of pounds worth of diamond-encrusted mobile phone running Nokia Series 40.
...by pissing away 13 grand on a diamond-encrusted Jesus Phone. Be tracked by marketing scum in style.
Dog only knows what effect all those diamonds will have on the reception issue.
Y'know, I've used MacOS exclusively and loved it since 1985 -- my first computer ever was a Mac 512K -- but I've gotta tell ya, Steverino's been nothing but an embarassment and a big, fat pain in the ass for the past five or six years.
These phones are pure tax rightoff ,plain and simple.
Diamonds are forever but phones certainly arent and there reaches a point when you are so rich you can really spend it like water.
You then have the diamonds removed when you are bored of the phone and sell them for a nice tidy little payout
Thats what I reckon - ever since I found out Elton John spent 250K in a year on flowers...
This isn't the first chav encrusted iPhone to infect our screens. It was done before, I think by the same people, so someone is clearly buying it. You don't have that number of diamonds to throw into a prototype in order to screw it up twice!
Unless there's another business model - hmm, very mobile forms of cash are these sparkly things.
With regard to the iPad mentioned earlier in the comments...
"...solid Platinum rear section which weighs in at a huge 2,700 grams."
Is boasting that you've added 2.7Kg to a device which is supposed to be highly portable really something that people will think is cool enough to pay nearly £300,000 for? Personally I'd prefer to pay significantly less for something that fulfils it's purpose significantly better.
