The Ultimate Seat of Power: iPod enabled potty

Roto Rooter LogoRotoRooter, the plumbing and drainage service company is all set to fullfill your wildest loo-time dreams 😀 Titled as the extreme “Pimped-out John” the whole setup allows you to “check your email, listen to your iPod, play your favourite video game (with a X-Box 360 Core System) – without leaving the bathroom“. And while you’re at it, keep yourself cool by tossing in a couple of mugs of ultra-chilled beer right out a compact ref. with a beer tap. If you’d rather go for a steaming cup of coffee, you can always use the coffe-warmer that plugs into your laptop.

Perfect to make you a couch-potato, eh? Or is it loo-potato? Hold on a sec! That ain’t quite right, coz along with the setup comes a Resistive Pedal Exerciser. If paying games, checking mails and drinking beer isn’t enough for you, bring your legs into some action. Now no one claim that you can’t sit and keep fit.

What more… your toitlet paper dispenser is actually a state-of-the-art iCarta Stereo Dock for iPod. So plug your iPod in and hum away to your favourite tunes. Incidentally, if you happen to run out of toilet paper in the process, no harm done. Simply pick up the Megaphone and yell for some more.

Finally, if you’ve tired yourself doing all the above, sit back and relax with a movie of your choice played right out of a Phillips Progressive Scan DVD Player onto a 20″ Phillips LCD Flat-Panel TV. If you’d rather prefer a plain TV show but otherwise are too busy with your other activities, get the Tivo DV Recorder to grab it for you. Yup – you heard me right!

All of this is up for the grabs at a sweepstake by RotoRooter which is open till April 25th – the National Plubmers Day in the U.S. Unfortunately, it’s open only for U.S. Citizens. Either ways it’s one hell of a setup.

World’s costliest phone earns Guiness Record

A new limited edition mobile phone from Goldvish, the Swiss cell-phone maker has beat the Vertu collection to being the world’s costliest phone ever. If you thought that the Vertu was mind-bogglingly expensive, think twice. This particular collection called PLATO and referred to as “Le million” PIECE UNQIUE was awarded a Guiness World Record for the unique distinction of being the Most Expensive & Most Exclusive handset worldwide. Since this is a limited edition, only 100 sets will be made and distributed around the world.

According to current pricing, this handset costs approximately USD 1,270,000 – that’s right ! Close to one point two million dollars.

The sets are encased with 120 carats of diamonds, made of white gold, sport sapphire glass displays and incorporate the advanced quad-band technology. According to Goldvish, these sets are a

“fusion of exclusive Swiss watch-making and high-tech, combined with the type of after-sales service that only a high-end luxury brand can give.”

The phone was featured recently at the Millionaire’s Fair in Moscow.

Personally, even if I had the money to buy one of these, I wonder if I’d feel safe at all walking around with one. I’d probably need to be flanked by a mini-army of armed security-men.
