MPlayer gets Midas--and assassin's--touch
Mickey's iRiver player gets gold-plated.

This limited-edition collaboration of iRiver and Disney is oddly described as an "'assassin's mace' of a device," according to Engadget. Whatever that means, it's double the price of the regular 1GB MPlayer at about $123. ("Assassin's mace"?)
