Et tu, iPod? Say it ain't so.

We've come to accept the electronics industry's penchant for taking perfectly decent products and making them disgustingly garish , especially where gold is involved. But the idealist in us naively thought the iPod would be immune to this unfortunate trend.

Yet there it is on Luxurylaunches, in all its 24k glory--and not just any gold, but "unique hardened mirror gold," whatever that means, from $600 to $800.

And who's responsible for this egregious blingdom? Why, Amosu , of course.
