    Yeah, you read it right... 45,000 dollars.I just saw a webpage about the "Douglas J. Presidential" MP3 player.

    http://www.cooltechzone.com/index.php?option=content&task=view&id=1847

    From 512MB and up to 1GB of storage space, this is really ridiculous. It has an arrangement of diamonds, a navigation system... pretty much all. They call it "the king of MP3 players", rating it 1st class and iPods 2nd. iPods are better, and if you agree, post :D :D :rolleyes: along with your post.

    "Okay Joe, for your birthday you can either have a nice car or an MP3 player."

    They'd sell like hotcakes if they were the Douglas J. Bling MP3 player.

    iPod or The Presidential? I'm happy with my iPod video. I don't really care about the looks. If it's from Apple, it's awesome.

    Other than diamonds, there's not much going for that player. And you can buy bags and cover cases stuff for the iPod/mini/video/picture/nano that would make it cost just as much.

    Five bucks says nobody's going to buy that. And if they did, they didn't work for their money, they were given the money.

    Well, all the stuff that you can see only costs around $500 (yes, they're fake diamonds). The other $44499 goes to pay for its anti-gravity generator. Then there's a $1 markup.

    Who in their right mind would buy something so hideously ugly and expensive?

    Probably someone with money to burn and a personal image agenda.
