Some of you like me may have grown up watching The Six Million Dollar Man, but how about an $8,000,000 iPhone? Stuart Hughes, the British jeweler known for his expensive remakes of popular gadgets, is at it again, this time with a diamond-clad iPhone 4 with a price tag of 5 million pounds, or roughly $8 million.The handmade bezel contains approximately 500 individual flawless diamonds that total more than 100 carats; there’s 53 additional diamonds in the back, and the main navigation button is made of platinum, holding a single cut 7.4 carat pink diamond. If you know diamonds, all of this probably means something to you; to us, it just sounds really, really expensive.
Only two of these will ever be made, so don’t worry: if you buy one, the chances of bumping into someone who has the exact same phone at a party are quite slim. And to think I am afraid to drop my current iPhone, with this one I would need a bullet-proof case!
With the revival of this horror genere seems to come some unexpected problems with some nutty young folks.
Two self-described practitioners of paganism and vampirism have been arrested in Arizona after they stabbed their roommate in an attempt to drink his blood.
Robert Maley, 25, told police that he had previously allowed his friends, 21-year-old Amanda Williamson and 24-year-old Aaron Homer, to drink his blood but when he refused to last Monday, the two stabbed him in their apartment.
AZFamily.com reports that firefighters were at the scene for an unrelated call when they saw Maley, covered in blood, run out of the apartment. The police were immediately alerted.
Homer is charged with aggravated assault and Williamson is charged with false reporting to police after she initially told cops that she was attacked and stabbed her attacker in self-defense. Maley was also arrested on an unrelated outstanding warrant. My guess is they were also on some heavy drugs (at least I hope so)!
