Ultimate Luxuries 2008

Culture
[ Music ] ^M00:00:04 >> Now, I know luxury tech gifts aren't necessarily at the top of most people's list this year, but it doesn't hurt to look, right? And you'll never know when you might find that perfect thing. I'm Molly Wood from CNET.com and let's take a tour of this year's ultimate tech luxuries. First on our list this year, I like to imagine that you, like me are an international jetsetter of some renown. Oh? Why, thank you. And like me you need to travel light, but you need lots of tech, like a really good camera and a world phone and a GPS and mobile posh e-mail and portable internet. So, obviously you need the mother of all smartphones. And that oh so pedestrian iPhone, BlackBerry, Samsung, Instinct, T-mobile G1 just won't cut it. You need to standout from the crowd with the Samsung Innov8 available unlocked in the United States for seven to eight hundred dollars. The camera is 8-megapixels. The feature list is endless. The style is sophisticated and the whole thing just screams "I'm awesome." Then again sometimes you're at home and home has to look good when you're entertaining dignitaries or posing for Architectural Digest. So don't let your computer scream "ugly computer." Dress it up the luxury way with the 22-inch Dell Crystal wide screen display. It costs a thousand dollars, street price and although it's got excellent color and graphics and can display HD contents from just about any source, its primary function in life is to cost a lot and look really good. And you have to admit that's you in a nutshell baby. Speaking of looking really, really, really good, almost nothing looks better than a Maserati. And the Maserati Gran Turismo looks so, so good. Yes true, James Bond prefers an Aston Martin, but I'm pretty sure you'll still come off like a superspy in this ride and I would certainly leave the party with you. And when it comes to cabin tech the Gran Turismo gives you gorgeous Italian navigation, the ability to rip CDs directly to the car's hard drive and an 11-speaker Bose stereo system. And when you have it shipped to Europe for touring the Alps, you can use a European SIM card for hands-free dialing all for around a hundred thousand dollars. What's that you say, that's not travelling in enough style for you? Well, I think I've got the answer and it's right here in this little packet. This, fellow silver spooners is a private jet gift card. It's for the Flexjet and you can buy it along with the flight and tour package starting at a hundred seven thousand dollars and ending at about four hundred thousand. And the card gets you travel on a private jet [inaudible] and your destination can be anything from a personal tour with renowned art consultant Barbara Guggenheim to an exclusive two day fly fishing trip in Montana. See, you don't buy the plane, you buy the card. That's an important savings technique in this troubled times. And on that note we hope we've taken you away from everyday living for just a little while. I know I've enjoyed this little fantasy. >> Show is over. >> Dude, I was gonna just start. That's just mean. I would have drunk that. For the rest of our ultimate luxury gift ideas and lots more practical presents, check out CNET's Holliday Gift Guide at holiday.cnet.com and happy Holidays to you. ^M00:03:18 [ Music ]
