The bottle definitely looks great, cannot wait to get one into my hands. We all know anyways, after one or two drinks it doesn`t matter what Vodka you are drinking. Here you`ll at least end up with a cool bottle.

The gearshift has the Versace Sun on top, etc. Personally I really doubt that anybody has the guts to drive this thing, but who knows.
It will be up for auction next month on Ebay, so watch out if you are interested.

Pharrell and Vuitton!!!

Originally uploaded by djfischer.
Pharrell again surprises us and has now created a new sunglass line for Louis Vuitton. Apparently Louis Vuitton`s CEO came up to him in a fashion show, looked at his sunglasses and said: "You design them and I will produce them!" How come that never happens to me. I guess, because I am at no fashion shows and do not have a dozen number one hits. On this one again Nigo from Bape also collaborated and helped Pharrell with the designs.
They will hit the stores soon, I am very curious on the designs. Price tag will most likely be very high, 250$ and up.

Nokia introduces 770


nokia770
Originally uploaded by djfischer.
Today Nokia announced the 770. This is not anymore a cellphone, but more a instant switch-on internet handheld for home use. It looks quite nice and comes with Wi-Fi, bluetooth, etc. It is basically supposed to go against a 4th computer in the household. It does not have any phone capabilitities. Price is really not bad: 350 $.
Check out all the features on Nokia`s website. It seems like they are starting to go new ways.
For a first review go check out Mobileburn. They also have a lot of real life pictures. This thing is really not as big as it seems.

Once they finished that, there flight schedule from London to NYC will start. They are planning to be 2 hours faster than the British Airlines flights. So, after the Concorde is gone now, its probably the best alternative. Prices will most likely range between 6`500$ to 7`000$.

Quite a cool case I would say, but isn`t the psp a gaming console?
