ridiculously overpriced item on Amazon it's the result of a glitch in their system, but if you happen to come across an MP3 player with a $20,000 pricetag, you'll know that you've landed on the pre-order page for TrekStor's i.beat organix Gold edition. That's right folks, the same gold-plated (18 karat), diamond-encrusted (62 one-karat bits of ice) 1GB DAP once commissioned by a Russian-Canadian billionaire (and cheekily tagged with the term "waste of money") can now be yours for the price of a pimped-out Honda Civic or down payment on your first home -- although interested parties better hurry, as this is a limited edition item, and will be sold on a first come, first served basis. The perfect companion gadget for your Goldvish cellphone, the organix Gold edition features all the amenities you'd expect from a multi-thousand dollar player, including ample codec support (MP3, WMA, WAV, ASF, and OGG), an "extremely sharp" two-color OLED display, and an FM tuner with 16 presets and built-in station search. While we're mighty tempted to take out a loan and pick one of these up ourselves, an Amazon "reviewer" perhaps put it best when he/she dryly noted that "I've heard that TrekStor will soon be introducing a 4GB model for under $30,000. I'm going to wait." Smart move, intrepid Amazonian, although if you wait too long, you may not qualify for the FREE Super Saver Shipping available on this 1GB version. Decisions, decisions.
