使用了iPhone以后真的不能再接受其他的手機了，尤其是這部劣質且物超所值NOKIA的N96。用了3G iPhone 還是懷念2G版的純鋁合金后蓋的 iphone。原來那部16GB的2G iphone差不多5500購買的，現今一部全新的8GB 2G iphone也要買到這個價錢了。物以稀為貴！ 貴在于斷貨，在于不會再出。所以，只能跑到美國花了 400USD 再買了一部全新的 8GB 2G iphone。沒辦法這個東西確實好！
When we sampled Rolls-Royce’s delectable Phantom Drophead Coupé (the perfect complement to warm Tuscan sun), the Goodwood-based manufacturer was already putting the finishing touches to the final piece in the Phantom fleet. Joining the Drophead, and sitting alongside the hugely accomplished saloon and extended wheelbase versions, is this new Drophead Coupé, a peerless four-seater based on the 2006 101EX concept.

While the Drophead had more than a hint of nautical elegance, with its teak rear deck and sisal floor mats, the Coupé is a more elegant, sporting affair, if something with the inherent grace and presence of a Rolls-Royce could be defined as sporting. Ample power is provided by the company’s vast 6.75-litre V12 (kiss goodbye to your congestion charge discount), giving the car performance that belies its hefty proportions.
The company’s designers have done well to soften the bulk, creating flowing lines that accommodate rear-hinged doors (with push-button closing, naturally), and a drop down picnic boot for two. Forward vision at tricky junctions is provided by a bumper-mounted camera, while there’s the option of having a ‘starlight headlining’, a fibre-optic light show embedded in the roof lining.
Craftsmanship, engineering, materials and finish are all first
In a former bank, a classic Prussian building modernised by architects Aukett + Heese, Rocco Forte’s new Berlin hotel, is located on Bebelplatz, off Unter den Linden. Interior designer Tommaso Ziffer has used a palette of creamed mushroom, black, burnt coffee and oxblood in a range of sumptuous materials. The original mahogany-panelled suites on the first floor in the former directors’ offices are a dream.

Designed by Andre Fu, who caused a splash with Opia restaurant last year (W*81), Azure, in the refurbished Hotel LKF, spans three levels. The lounge has caramel onyx on its 8m-high walls; the bar is clad in rippled timber; and the terrace of the 70-seat dining room, 30 storeys up, is becoming one of Hong Kong’s hottest spots to party and people-watch.

The Bowery, New York, by Sean MacPherson and Eric Goode
Thanks to charmingly old-world styling by the owners, this is the first boutique hotel to pop up in the formerly gritty Bowery neighbourhood. The interior is all mahogany, worn-in leather and open fires, easily recalling elegant 18th-century living. With service to match the styling, the comfort and nostalgia of the Bowery put it way ahead of its rivals in the boutique market.
我 必须说LV的产品质量大不如前。列举2个小例子。一个是LV的中长度的电话绳。如图你可以看到它是靠一个活动的钉子扣来上扣的。但是这个钉子扣并非可以锁 定或者固定。你必须保持悬挂物100%的垂直状态。否则，一旦松弛这个扣就会松脱。你挂在脖子上数千元的电话马上就会应声倒地。会导致很凄凉的后果。我对 这个LV产品的设计称之为法国猪脑设计，对购买和使用这等弱智产品如我者称之为大猪头！
下面图片展示的是一个ipod的Louis Vuitton LV 挂袋。看这个挂袋的背后是靠两个嵌入式很薄的小脆皮圈来承担全部重量。说是皮质，但我看就是两层如硬纸的玩意。没用多久，稍一用力就会扯开这个圈。扯开了 倒也无所谓，因为根据LV的传统，他们出售的物品都是可以维修的。只要你愿意付银子。但这个物品被LV拒绝与外，不能维修。这是我超过20年使用龄。第一 次遇到的。自从Bernard Arnault收购了LV以后，她失去了原有的LV文化及精髓。变得捞气太重！
