    The 8 Million dollar iphone.. Over 100 karats of diamonds .. Insane .. I wonder what the insurance on that thing would be






    We've already established that if you're filthy rich, you probably don't want the same cell phone as common folk. No, if you're looking for something higher end, you'll probably end up talking to Stuart Hughes, who customizes electronics by plating them in gold and diamonds. We've already seen his work on a $20,000 iPhone 4, but his latest achievement is downright ridiculous. Called the "world's most expensive phone" (we'll see how long that lasts), Hughes made two identical models for an Australian client. Each handset includes over 500 diamonds and totals over 100 karats, and comes in its own special granite box. Its total cost is 5 million -- nearly 8 million dollars. Just don't bother crying when you leave it on the seat of a cab.

    My question here is whether Stuart Hughes is actually a successful business. If it is, good for him. He's realized a valuable lesson- that when you sell to the luxury market, your margins are higher and you get the pleasure of a high-end brand association. Plus you get to have fun making the world's most ridiculous/awesome phone.

    Yep, I got a student loan they can pay also. Seriously, while I agree with the "it's his money" concept...there are a lot of hungry and hurting people in the world that could use a donation or three...
