The 18k gold Shuffle: only $10,000

A bargain for the taking.

BornRich

Pity the poor Shuffle. Even before all of Apple's music players took a back seat to the iPhone, the Shuffle had to endure the pomposity of its older sibling in 24k gold .

But the little guy is finally getting some revenge. According to BornRich, a German company called Xexoo has created a Shuffle cast in 18k gold for just $10,000, including 24-hour tech support. Before you rush out to take advantage of this bargain, be aware that the player is expecting--what else?--an upgrade. Instead of memory or other boring specs, though, the next version will have diamonds. At these prices, one would at least expect them to throw in a golden remote .
