I’m not getting this at all. I’m assuming this was NOT done in cooperation w Apple? So, how can they revamp an iPhone and charge 2 grand for it?

And, if it was done in coop w Apple… why?

Take a look at the site and this one makes more sense (note- still doesn’t make sense - just “more” sense :) )

You could go for a bunch of firewood strapped together with a steel band and sold as a table for $2500 - they say it makes a bold statement - I say that bold statement is “I’m an idiot!” :)

OK, so these ppl think changing something just slightly then charging upto 10,000% for it is really a business model that will work? I’ve painted my iPhone and put some pics and musin on it. Wonder what it’s worth now? Mines a bit more exciting than flat-black tho. Taking offers now.

Oh did you see thier 18k gold dipped Bic pen cap?

Gold plated plastic = plating falls off easily
Bic cap = less than a half cent to produce
Selling it for $365 = wtfPriceless???

So Apple can limit 2 iphones per person paid by CC because people re-sell them on ebay for 700 bucks, but these guys can sell modified iphones for $2000. wow

mmm, well, I think the value of objects is a very interesting thing, not only the financial, but the emotional and cultural, it’s more an open question than a didactic stance.
oh, and the pen cap, and all, well, they’re solid bronze, copper plated then gold plated.

Kinda silly, yeah. But ... a thing is worth whatever someone will pay for it. Case in point: eBay.

Are there really 50 people that arrogant and ignorant in this country?  Oh ... wait, I forgot about Washington DC.  Never mind.

Just because you all can’t afford to pay $2000 for an iPhone, it doesn’t mean that people who can, and do are idiots. People will pay a lot for exclusivity, and this is a product that offers that. Accept it.

It’s true. I saw on TV today that Warren Buffett wants rich people like him to pay more taxes. He pays only 17% of his income, while his secretary (who makes a lot less) pays 33%.

Matches - $10
Doorstop - $3500
