Diamond-studded iPhone offered on Olympic theme

What's the best thing about De Vere's $8,219, diamond-studded iPhone? That the jewelery is limited to the only part of the device that can reasonably set it, its metal trim. One may increase or decrease the number of diamonds, and the price, as desired. Though De Vere knows that money is no guarantee of good taste, its hands will remain clean: it says it will not arrange the purchase itself. You must get an iPhone yourself and bring it in.

    I heard that the wall paper theme is photos of the children whose hands were cut off on the suspicion of trying to steal the diamonds used to encrust the iPhone.

    What a good use of money for a piece of technology that will only last you two years, barring you don’t drop it.

    When did this become the cool thing to do? Let’s make something the MOST EXPENSIVE in the world by adding diamonds to it. It’s stupid.

    There must be a glut of diamonds because they are trying to put them everywhere.

    Watch for diamond prices to drop. Oh, wait. It’s a cartel, like oil.

    For $8,219 they’d better learn how to set the diamonds in a straight line for chrissake. Lookit those pictures, aside from the fact that any diamond-studded phone looks like crap, that looks like crap.

    I was trying to make a connection, I really was.

    The picture that temporarily appeared at the top of this article was a screenshot from a game called King of Dragon Pass.

    OK. You’ve convinced me. I’m off to the dollar store to buy some rhinestones and crazy glue.. Film at eleven – not saying which day…

    Man that thing is overpriced and gaudy.

    And then to go and stick diamonds on it to boot?
