Want an even more premium HTC One M9? Try Goldgenie

HTC would try to remind you every chance it gets about how the One M9 was meticulously designed and crafted like a premium watch, with an attention to detail and materials like no other. Almost to the point that they may have forgotten that they're trying to make a 2015 flagship. For some, however, especially die hard HTC fans, that just isn't enough.

This is American Express’ new Miami Centurion Lounge

There are plenty of reasons to have an American Express card in your wallet, but access to the growing number of Centurion Lounges in airports might be top of the list. Where airline lounges all too often drop a few stale pastries in a self-serve bin next to a coffee pot and a mini-fridge of Coke, American Express' take is an altogether more luxurious experience: real food, a curated wine list, seats you'd actually want to sit in, and even extras like an in-lounge spa. Latest to the list is Centurion Lounge Miami, at Miami International Airport.
