Upset that the Apple iPhone is no longer exclusive enough? Then, App Store has the perfect downloadable application for you, called I Am Rich.
The program displays a red gem, has no function but to display your wealth to others through ownership, and costs $1000.
The description in iTunes reads â€œThe red icon on your iPhone or iPod Touch always reminds you (and others when you show it to them) that you were able to afford this. Itâ€™s a work of art with no hidden function at allâ€¦â€
As kottke said, â€œFor some, the iPhone is already an obvious display of wealth and I Am Rich is commenting on that. Plus, buying more than you need as an indication of wealth is practically an American core value for a growing segment of the population.â€
Unfortunately you wont be able to download it anymore. It has since been removed from the Apple Store for no reason… Though, the â€œI am Richâ€ application is one of those reasons why you have to make sure your iTunes asks for you permission to buy apps before purchasing !
Part of the GLK collection, the new iPhone pouch is crafted from the finest quality white nappa leather with crisp cut-out transparent GLK letteringâ€“ a characteristic feature of the entire GLK Collection â€“ that has been lavishly trimmed with CRYSTALLIZEDâ„¢ Swarovski Elements.
The effect is eye-catching: when the iPhone is actually inserted and the display is activated, the refraction of light through the fine-cut crystals ensures that the GLK lettering shimmers in an attractive play of colours. Inside the GLK iPhoneÂ® pouch is lined with a special magenta-coloured fabric.
Mercedes-Benz Accessories GmbH has been working closely with the Austrian crystal specialist Swarovski for some time now. The strictly limited edition of 40 exclusive, glittering iPhoneÂ® pouches will be exclusively raffled for invited guests of Mercedes-Benz in the Lounge.
Only 40 are set for immediate production, with each set to be raffled for invited guests of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Berlin in the Lounge. But not to worry, the iPhone pouch will certainly make its official debut as part of the Mercedes GLK Collection come October. Though, for drivers of Mercedes-Benz passenger cars, the GLK-Class offers a convenient and secure connection for the iPhone on board with the usual multifunction steering wheel control.

Almost one year after the original Apple iPhone went on sale, Apple has unveiled a new 3G version of its popular iPhone that will go on sale on 11 July.
The addition of 3G support is a big win : This will allow users to surf the internet at faster speeds than is currently possible on the original iPhone. If data speeds hold up as Jobs demonstrated, the new iPhone really will put the internet in your pocket.
It will also feature built-in GPS technology, which will enable users to use their iPhone as a satellite-navigation device both in-car and on-foot using Google Maps.
iPhone 3G isn’t perfect, but there’s a lot to like here : Though the iPhone 3G is thinner at the edges than its predecessor.
The 8GB model will come in black only, while Apple promises the 16GB version in back and white.
In the US the phone retails for US$199 for the 8GB model (down from $399) and US$299 for the 16GB version (down from $599).
Indeed, Steve Jobs said that one of the main reasons people had given for not buying the handset was that it was too expensive.
It will be rolled out to 70 countries worldwide over the next few months.
More than six million iPhones had been sold globally since the device first went on sale in the US in July 2007.
Usually, where there are extremely coveted gadget, there are always extremely expensive luxury cases for them ! You think iPhone is expensive ? so what about spending another 2 iPhones to protect it?
Anyways Louis Vuitton thought that there is a market for the kind of folks who can afford it and so they have released a set of four cases for the iPhone: Monogram Canvas, Taiga Leather, Epi Leather and Alligator Skin.
Available only in Louis Vuittonâ€™s Manhattan store, prices begin at $225 from the monogram canvas style to $1,120 for the alligator case.
But all of the cases are pretty inconvenient, because you’ve got to pull the iPhone all the way out to actually use it.
Here is a budget alternative to Peter Aloisson designed iPhone Princess Plus. Available on Ebay for $10,000 you get solid white gold iphone skillfully enhanced by 5.65 carats of VS Brilliant Cut Diamonds.

iPod integration has become more and more prevalent in the automotive industry, as automakers offer the compatibility on models ranging from subcompacts up to exotic supercars. But this is taking it a step further: a Lamborghini iPhone.
