Insane Crystal Bathtub Costs $790,000

If I were a billionaire, I would squander untold sums of money on all manner of things that many people would find stupid. I would buy anything that tickled my fancy, mostly cars though. I agree with some types of money squandering, but to drop nearly $800k on a bathtub is crazy.

GenosTV Unveils Cyclops Remote Control, Ergonomics be Damned

One of the greatest inventions of man is the remote control. I remember the awe when I was a kid when my dad rolled in a TV with a remote control for the first time. The thing that most remotes have in common today is the form factor. They are usually single hand use devices with similarly shaped buttons.
