Paula,

That's technology gone wild in gold. Being just a poor systems administrator I don't dare looking at it.

Re: Technology gone mad

Hi Paula,

this seems to be very cheap in my opinion.... How many did you buy? Is there one left for me, or even better two, one for my girl friend too?

*lol*

Allways stay on the bright side of life!

I am a working girl.

Not a "Working Girl" ;-)


Paying for the holiday was enough for me.

Re: Technology gone mad

High there (yes high). You took a *DEEP* breathe and then thought: NO, I won't ask my partner !)

You can buy a *lot* of nice stuff for that price that you can enjoy /together/

Glad we're both back safe from holiday. Browsing back we didn't miss a lot. Maybe we are missed a lot :) [ me still sitting in the chatroom, but I'll go back home early tonight ]
Enjoy, Have FUN! H.Merijn

Hi Paula,

Personally I think I would prefer rose gold, so you think they make to order :-)

Re: Technology gone mad

Hi Paula,

A co-worker recently showed me a picture of a necklace that his brother just made of a large emerald and a bunch of diamonds. The emerald was an heirloom of the customer. The necklace has been apraised at over one million dollars. Can you imagine wearing *that* at a night on the town????

Hi Paula,

Welcome home;-)

The problem is to obtain a car that's look like the phone, isn't?;-)

Re: Technology gone mad

Welcome back, Paula!

How on earth did you happen to pick Dubai as a vacation destination, anyway? Is it a popular destination for you Brits or did you have to search long and hard to come up with something totally obscure.

Just curious,
Pete

High Princess,

(or would that now be "Priceless Paula"???) glad to hear you enjoyed your vacation.

Guess you spent a little time on "Jumaira Beach" (close to the "Burj Al Arab") while thinking about that phone? I personally believe that diamonds would ge better with platinum than gold, so I did non buy one (maybe there was another reason, but that's three months past and was not a vacation).

Did you try the "shishas" (water pipes)? Well, if you did, be careful with your replies here for a day or two (those shishas made me feel *dizzy*).

Regards from your fellow european,
Wodisch (who tries walking like an egyptian without towel right now).

Hey Merry,
where have you been to? And what did the mobiles look like, there?

Re: Technology gone mad

Hi Pete and Wodisch,

A friend who lives in Kuwait said "Fancy a holiday in Dubai" so how could I say no.

Did not try the water pipes but did try the dancing (not very good".

Food was wonderful.

Stayed in Metropolitan, Hilton Jumaira Beach, and Al Bustan (3,4 and 3 nights).

It is a marvellous place and I cannot recommend it highly enough.

I will be going back next year to visit the Gold Suk (Market) and do some flying.

Wodisch is there a problem with your profile as you seem to be missing a few points?

Hi Donald

Re: Technology gone mad

Hi Paula,

Another thought. I wonder how much it weighs. Phones are getting smaller & lighter these days, but then if you can afford the phone, you can probably pay someone to carry it for you !

Hi

The weight was measured in carats !!!!

Re: Technology gone mad

Smaller and lighter is right - a design was recently unveiled for a mobile phone that can be implanted into a tooth! (apparently, the signals would somehow be carried through the jaw bone)

I don't want to know how you'd charge the battery on one of those, and I can imagine horrendous problems if another tooth starts to ache, and then the phone rings, but at least it would force people to take their phones with them, rather than leaving them on their desks and wandering off.

Re: Technology gone mad

Hi

Tooth ache would be measured in Mega Hurts !!

I think Wodisch has doctored his point count so he can win HP's contest for the biggest percentage point gain.
