24K Gold iPod on eBay

piciLounger ‘ExtraT’ reports that eBay Germany has an auction listed for a 24K gold 5GB iPod. The following has been translated into English:

“The special at this iPod: Its highly polished high-grade steel lower surface is coated with 24 karaetigem feingold. The coating took place with absolute perfection under highest claims of quality and cannot not peel, since it is connected with the lower surface with application of a special coating technology molecularly. Layer strength 3µ. The layer is absolutely new and intact (no scratches those the silver underground become visible to let.)”

It’s too bad that they couldn’t still have the engravings, it kind of loses its “cool” factor a lot in my opinion

it would be funny if someone actually bought this to use and not just as a pretty collectible then got overly paranoid about scratches and puts an iskin over the top of it

Is that a 1g or a 2g?

That is a cool idea, but i think the chrome still looks cooler

Despite the fact that its an iPod… plated with gold… the highest bid is still 86 euros right now. Dunno how high it will go. My guess: not very.

as if the manufacture of lucite, semiconductors, and the chrome electroplating already done on factory ipods was not enough of an ecological footprint on the earth already.  haz waste from plating, and all of the manufacturing processes, air emmissions, transportation factors….  where the hell is my bio polymer, butane fuel cell powered, solar recharging, totally sustainable ipod at?
