Logical Investment: Gold Plated iPhone?

As if the iPhone wasn’t already a glitzy item, the folks at Computer Choppers want to spruce up your phone with gold plating for a hefty $599 on top of the phone price. A true Apple aficionado doesn’t have to stop their either, as the same company will gold plate your MacBook Pro too! The MacBook is $1200-1500 on top of the computer price.

Additional goods that can be outfitted in gold—a VAMP NOS CD player for $8,000, a Nintendo DS for $320, and several iPod models ranging from $130-720. Even Nokia is gildable, with the Nokia 6500’s $550 golden upgrade. What do you think—is gold jewelry the way of the past and gold technology the accessory of the future?

Happy Valentine's Day!

Valentine's Day is about showing the ones you love how much you appreciate them. Some people do this with flowers, cards, chocolates, and others kick it up a notch and purchase jewelry! When looking back, many of us have gold jewelry from previous Valentine's that are either outdated, broken, or are from past relationships we would rather forget. If this is the case, why not make some room this Valentine's Day and send in that old and unwanted jewelry and make cash!

For Your Listening Pleasure, Gold Earphones

A new set of earphones have hit the market, created by Monster and named for the R&B group Earth, Wind & Fire. In true 1970s dedication, the earphones are outfitted with gold accents. Users who have tested the new model say that they are the best sounding in-ear headphone that Monster has made to date.

The exact model is called the Earth, Wind & Fire Gratitude. It’s got defined bass and it looks good shining in your ears—which is a nice vacation from the commonplace white earbuds people have been sporting for years. Just be sure your gold earrings coordinate with your shiny new accessory.

Charlize Theron Loves Gold

We’ve all seen the Christian Dior ads with Charlize Theron fawning over the golden-bottled fragrance j’adore. Her love of gold has now gone beyond fragrance and around her neck! At a recent event, Theron paired a dangerously low neckline with a multi strand gold necklace with tassel detailing. Her clutch was also gold, though she kept the rest of her look understated as far as colors go.

Despite the low neckline, Theron looks regal and classy—as usual.
