I would have thunk that the workers would have gotten at the _least_ an iPod Touch each rather than a shuffle...

That's it exactly: A Le Corbusier barge with a Frank Lloyd Wright pavilion on top.

Currently there are nine lawsuits in process by other yachts named "Venus".

This is NOT a Steve Jobs Creation!!!!

This yacht could NOT have been designed by Steve Jobs. It is not thin enough and there are too many I/O ports!! I dare say that this is the yacht of the evil Google emperor trying yet again to imitate SJ......

I wonder if they will be able to replace the battery or will they have to build another yacht.

For people who think this is ugly, take a look at what most super-rich-people yachts look like:

Why would a the most important structure of a boat ( aluminum-hulled) be built out of aluminum, and not steel?

I did, and he wasn't any different than anyone else I've met who is responsible for running a large business.

I have to say. It reminds me of an Apple Store on water, not trying to be funny, and for some reason it also strikes me as lonely. Not sure how to verbalize it but even in the video from onemorething it just seems...... more than cold, somber, and no it's not just the music.

Interesting design, but not quite my taste. It should have been named the iYacht.

If they went with Form over Function too much, it will be a nice place to visit while scuba diving!

Samsung actually already makes ships. Large cargo ships though.
