Buying the new Aerius BT headset from Vertu may cost you an ear if the price is anything like their uber-expensive phones.  It’s now confirmed that the famous designer Jacob Jensen is the designer of the Aerius headset.  Using this new headset is extremely easy; even a caveman can do it.  Yes, it does have background noise reduction, but there’s no mentioning of wind guard.  If you need to know the price, then chances are you can afford this headset.

Vertu supply problem infuriates rich show-offs

Vertu supply problem infuriates rich show-offs

I have to confess, I scoffed a little when first seeing Vertu's luxury cellphones.  "Who would buy a tarted-up Nokia with sub-par features," I quipped, sipping cheap cooking brandy from an old yogurt pot, "they must have more money than sense!"

I guess that brandy must have dulled my predictive foresight, however, because with sales doubling this year over last there simple aren't enough precious-metal clad mobiles to go around.  All that, despite the most basic Vertu handset costing upwards of $5000.

Ironically they've a new handset out next month that is expected to boost sales further.  My concern, which I would happily voice if asked to join their board, would be that the cachet is a sizeable part of the charm, and that with too many models they run the risk of flooding the market and turning off the fashionistas.  But then what do I know - it's not even midday in some timezones and I'm already half-cut on sherry trifle.

Apple Store no longer carries Bose products

A lot has been speculated on regarding Apple’s relationship with third-party entities lately, as both Bose and Fitbit have reportedly come under fire as having offended Apple’s sensibilities.

Bose and the NFL have a partnership that saw athletes being fined for wearing Beats headphones. Suddenly, a search for Bose headphones in the Apple Store brings up no products.

Amazon Prime Air shot down by anti-drone FAA

The FAA has shut down Amazon's ambitions to deliver packages by drone, reiterating that it will take legal action if Prime Air or any other delivery scheme tries to operate in the guise of a hobby aircraft. Confusion around the status of drones had flourished earlier this year, when courts overturned a $10,000 fine handed out by the Federal Aviation Administration to a pilot, but the agency is aiming to make it crystal clear that its stance hasn't changed.
