iPhone falls prey to the gold treatment

Another gets the Midas touch.


How do you make a bricked iPhone stand out among all the paperweights on your desk? Easy, coat it in luscious gold.

That's exactly what Goldstriker is coming up with--a 24 carat gold plated 8GB iPhone, though it didn't say whether it will be locked by AT&T, upgraded with the latest software, or simply an iBrick. Not all things gold will get our attention, but with the amount of flak the iPhone has gotten lately, this could jolly well end up as a valid reason for current owners in Asia to turn their iPhone into a gold brick. Start saving the money.
