In the case of \"why would you pay $8k for a black and white camera,\" exhibit 'A' would surely be the lack of a color filter array corrupting the image.

What's that, an alien egg? Nope. Memory foam iPillow? No, silly, it's a Zeppelin, a Zeppelin Air more specifically. Bowers & Wilkins brought us the first iPod-centric Zeppelin in the middle of the great iPod dock flood of '07. A few years later they downsized and brought us a mini version

Bowers and Wilkins is looking to bring some giggles to its (relatively) value-conscious 600-series lineup in the form of its new ASW 610XP subwoofer. You know B&W isn't for the thrifty, but its 600-series of speakers are known for delivering a good-sized bite of the high-end apple for your doll

Bowers and Wilkins is one of those venerable speaker brands that always gets mentioned when people want to get into high-end speakers (how much only depends on budget), and the company has brought out four new models to its CM-series that sits between its 600 and 800-series lineups. The CM9 ($1,500
