    Gold digger Credit crunch got you down? Looking for gold in all the wrong places, like, say, the innards of your computer? Don’t! Unless you want to die! A Tulsa man died last week (news travels fast…) as a result of mercury poisoning. He was trying to use the chemical to extract gold out of his computer parts. He accidentally inhaled the mercury, leading to his untimely… Read More

  • Voodoo's vanity case is the shiniest of them all


    The Voodoo booth was an orgy of exposed PCB, flashy accessories, and some guy with dreds up in a topknot. And rotating in a glass case was this gold thing, which really just seems incredibly impractical, but still awesome. The Blackbird ran Unreal Tournament 3 beautifully, and I killed some fools who thought they could rumble with this. Now, if I were rich, I would buy these products, but I… Read More

  • LG Shine Dipped In Gold And Folds

    Just announced in SK are LG’s two newest Shine models. Details are skimp, but I don’t anticipate anything new or exciting from either. The Shine we’ve come to know and love has been dipped in gold. The CDMA version will be launched in SK in the coming weeks. Details on the clamshell Shine are very scarce and it seems to be unchanged feature-wise. We haven’t even heard… Read More

Yup, you’ll be getting a seriously played out RAZR that’s gold and is exactly the same at T-Mo’s D&G RAZR – except there’s no D&G content anywhere. I can see it now: Guy 1: ::pulls out gold RAZR at party::

  • Gold-Cast TrekStor i.Beat MP3 Player Goes For $20,000

    Why would anyone sane pay $19,999.99 for an MP3 player that doesn’t hold, say, 100TB of music? Because this player is cast in 18 karat gold and encrusted with jewels, that’s why. The 1GB TrekStor i.Beat gold MP3 player comes with Sennheiser headphones (probably $30), USB 2.0 cable ($5), line-in cable ($5), software CD ($2.99) and a guide ($1). So you’re really only paying… Read More
