It reminds me of someone else's decorative style. Someone else who is a fan of eastern European showy-ness.

Pointy Tail of Satan: Gold is really dense. Bet it screws up reception.


Possibly, I don't know for certain, but this is just an ostentatious display of wealth meant to intimidate poors as to the owner's "importance".

Back in the early 00s, I got a call from a headhunter about a job running a buying team for a major Moscow based consumer electronics retailer - referred to as "the Best Buy of Russia." It would have tripled my annual salary and came with a free apartment in Moscow, along with a car and a driver/interpreter (bodyguard?). The catch was I had to guarantee them that I would convince a dozen or so major global CE brands to do business with them direct vs. working through distributors and renegotiate more favorable terms. I told them I would think about it.

So, I called a friend of mine that worked at one of the brands they wanted. I told her that about this job offer and about the company's "requirements."

"Oh, I know them," she said. "They called us about a year ago and asked us to fly out to meet and discuss selling our stuff in their stores. I said sure, but then the Buyer informed me that I should arrive with a suitcase with $1MM in it and be prepared to hand it over to him after the deal - which I had no idea what that was going to turn out to be - was negotiated. I told them politely to fark off."

The idea of working with and negotiating deals side by side with some Teddy KGB motherfarker seemed cool for about 10 minutes before I came back to the reality that I feel bad lowballing the neighbor kid for mowing my lawn.

I'm going to say it - if I won Powerball, I'd totally buy that.  No fancy cars, no mansion, no yacht - just the one completely over-the-top accessory.  At least phones have pretty much reached the 'good enough' point, so it ought to last for a while.

Honestly, if there's a problem here, it's that they're only charging $23-25K.  Stick another zero on there and make it a limited edition of 100 units, just to be SURE that it's truly exclusive.

That's it. Harrods' customised iphone 5 laughs at their poor attempt at irrational extravagance.

At least this is aftermarket stupid- those designer Apple Watches are official products. How many of these $17k series 1 models are gathering dust in a drawer, and can we guillotine their owners now?
