It must be expected that certen jeweler, in the present case this is Austrian jeweler Peter Aloisson has done it, most expensive mobile phone amidst on of the biggest global economic downturns. He encrusted an iPhone 3G with so many diamonds that it has a sales price of 1,790,000 Euro (~$2.41m).
According to i4u.com the iPhone 3G Kings is made of solid 18 carat yellow gold, white gold, and rose gold. The white gold line is encrusted with a total of 138 brilliant cut diamonds of the best quality. But the main feature of the iPhone 3G Kings is the “home button”. It carries a rare 6.6 carat diamond.
According to Zune owners, thousands of 30GB Zunes iPod imitators suddenly got failing, beginning restarting and locking up at their boot screens across the globe at exactly midnight Pacific time last night.
“We’ve got two Zune 30GBs,” says one poster to the Zune.net forums. “One was docked in the Zune Docking Station, the other wasn’t. At exactly 2am CDT (12am PDT), the docked Zune made the ‘unplugged from USB port’ bong-noise and went to the boot-up screen with the 100% loading bar…and froze.
“At 2:30am CDT, I decided to check the other Zune. Turned it on and…frozen at the 100% loading screen. Something’s clearly wrong with the Zune 30GBs. I hope they get this fixed soon…I just got my Zune for Christmas, and I was loving it!”
Early this morning Microsoft was alerted by customers that there was a widespread issue affecting our 2006 model Zune 30GB devices (a large number of which are still actively being used). The technical team jumped on the problem immediately and isolated the issue: a bug in the internal clock driver related to the way the device handles a leap year, zune.net reports. “That being the case, the issue should be resolved over the next 24 hours as the time change moves to January 1, 2009. We expect the internal clock on the Zune 30GB devices will automatically reset tomorrow (noon, GMT). By tomorrow you should allow the battery to fully run out of power before the unit can restart successfully then simply ensure that your device is recharged, then turn it back on. If you’re a Zune Pass subscriber, you may need to sync your device with your PC to refresh the rights to the subscription content you have downloaded to your device.
