    Bag Week Reviews: Saddleback Leather Briefcase

    Short Version: Let’s kick this bag review week up a notch into the luxury bag market. Saddleback Leather specializes in bags made of real, well, saddle leather. It’s a full quarter-inch thick, carefully cut and stitched, and is heavy as the dickens. However, I’m pleased to report that this is one of the nicest laptop bags I’ve used. Read More

    Verbatim Covers A Portable Hard Drive In Leather

    Here’s something sure to anger the PETA crowd; Verbatim took an external hard drive, and covered it with leather. Who would of thought of such a thing? Verbatim is holding out on us as far as cost, but we do know it’ll be available in 320GB or 500GB and either black or brown leather. It includes Nero BackItUp and Burn and Turbo USB software.

  • Hey guys, it's a $550 leather keyboard

    Hey guys, it's a $550 leather keyboard

    Even when I was reviewing the cream of the crop in the high-end keyboard review week, I never saw anything like this. The Gokukawa is, if I am not mistaken, a leathern keyboard. I’m not usually at a loss for words, but this is… yeah. It’s by the same people who make these lovely keyboards, which explains the price. I feel like suede would be nicer on the fingers, but maybe… Read More

  • Why the hell not? It’s a keyboard made of leather

    Why the hell not? It’s a keyboard made of leather

    Here’s a keyboard made of leather with no markings on the keys. I know, right?! It’s made by Japanese artist Kazuharu Sakura. Far be it for me to stand in the way of artistic creativity but from a functional standpoint, this thing might be pretty expensive and equally aggravating to type on – the two silver bullets against most keyboard purchases. If you really love leather… Read More

    Tag Heuer's $7,000 cellphone is $7,000 worth of "meh"

    I have a Helio Ocean and a Palm Centro I use as my daily dialers (I know, I know) alternatively, and between the two they do nearly everything a cellphone can do, but they’re lacking one thing: crocodile skin. That’s why I should look into this Tag Heuer Meridiist. It’s a very good looking phone from people who make very good looking watches. It’s luxury in your pocket, if… Read More

    Tourbillon Timepiece Defines Luxury

    When going out on the town and trying to pick up chicks, I usually settle for my Mickey Mouse Armitron watch. However, when I heard that Hickey was coming with me to pick up dudes in the restroom, I opted for something a bit classier. Meet the Tourbillon Timepiece from Avianne & Co. The ultimate definition of class and luxury, this $65,000 watch comes with a mother-of-pearl round face, a… Read More

    Anyone with $4000 to shell out and a hankering for a new laptop should take note of this beautiful new notebook from HP and Maybach. Though it does come after Ferrari and Lamborghini made laptops with Asus and Acer, the Maybach laptop seems to be a whole new ball game.

    Embarrassed to play your Nintendo DS in public? This leather-bound Nintendo DS case will fool curious onlookers into thinking that you’re just reading a book—albeit sideways. Available in Japan for now, this accessory might not be as cool as the Hori Privacy Filter for the PSP, but it’s one small step toward making sure that you stay secretly entertained no matter how boring life… Read More

  • Tough Guy Leather USB Drive

    Most things that are banal can be elevated from “stupid” to “interesting” by wrapping them in leather. See: rock stars, steering wheels, prom dates. So is the case with Digiwork’s latest USB thumb drives. In 1, 2, or 4GB sizes, the otherwise unremarkable flash drives are wrapped in sensual, epicurean leather. With the keyring, this would be the only flash drive… Read More

  • Asus W6 and S6 Leather Laptops

    Ah yes. Ricardo Montalban and and his “rich corinthian leather” has made their way onto your laptop in these Asus W6 and S6 series machines. The laptops have 13.3-inch widescreen displays, and features leather so “genuine”, it comes with “markings such as scars, wrinkles and grain variation.” No leather substitute here. The W6 laptops can be mounted in Core Duo… Read More

  • LG Adds Leather to New TV Phones

    <img src="http://tctechcrunch2011.files.wordpress.com/2007/01/TV. You read that correctly. We like the LG checker keypad thing it's been doing, and the fact that the phone comes wrapped in your choice of leather coverings, complete with pockets and other wallety things. The phone itself is pretty nice too, using a DMB tuner to pick up that fancy digital TV they have all over Korea. In… Read More
