    Could it actually be made of gold? Like the crazy expensive Vertu phones back in the day?

    China's demand for Buicks also kept GM from cutting the brand.

    So few people know that and even fewer believe it.

    How's about "Zune Brown", pretty please? :-)

    "A July 2012 Asia-Pacific color trend forecast by global chemical giant BASF predicted a movement toward culturally significant hues. Reds, golds, and "colors of nature" like brown and olive were expected to see a rise in popularity."

    Brown is coming back - maybe there will finally be a market for the Zune after all.

    Ballmer is vindicated. Too bad they can't re-release the Zune brown "squirt" edition.

    How come every picture of gold iPhone 5s I saw had white/gold instead of darker golden color for the glass parts? I don't think Apple will make 2 tone iPhone 5 like that because others may demands black/gold instead of white/gold. If the metal chassis is in light gold, shouldn't glass be more like copper color?

    Why? the two current models are two tone already, and despite calls for black/aluminum.

    I think it looks slightly better in black - gold, but if I had to design one with gold, I'd use rose gold/yellow gold as a contrast, which I guess is your point, right?

    BTW, black has now been spotted


     


     



    I know I'm going to be flamed, but these things are horrible.


    Either they're plain fakes, Apple's very own and successful ??????????, or Apple is throwing down the drain decades of great engineering and design to cater to "the chinese market" in a very Samsung way. I cannot believe the latter.

    So you are still as wrong as you ever are, and just as smug about it.




    What's the problem with being smug? It's fun, and won't hurt as much as a cigarette.
