Dreams of goldDior Feuille d'Or


Nothing captures the essence of luxury as beautifully as gold. While most devices of communication are looked at and manufactured as just that, Dior goes the extra mile and a half, and crafts handsets that go on to become objects of desire.

The latest glamorous handset to be crafted is the Feuille d'Or or what literally translates to ‘Golden Leaf'. An ultraslim clamshell handset, the fa├žade of the Feuille d'Or is a black sapphire crystal plate with gold leaves encrusted in the trademark ‘cannage' pattern.

The flip keyboard has ultra-flat electroluminescent keys and the hinges holding the clamshell together too are black sapphire crystals. The circular browser button on the keypad is inlaid with 0.2 micron gold leaves.

The Dior Feuille d'Or comes packed in a hand-brushed gold-plated case. Included with the handset is My Dior, a miniphone with a matching black sapphire and gold leaf design, that be linked to the Dior Feuille d'Or via Bluetooth.

AT&T MiFi 2372 review

In the week or so that I have been testing the AT&T MiFi 2372 by Novatel Wireless, it has already saved no less than three lives. First, it saved my cable guy’s life. You see, Time Warner Cable provides the worst home Internet service I have ever experienced. I can’t even think of a close second. If providing terrible home Internet service was a sport, Time Warner Cable would be on its tenth consecutive undefeated season. Forget the fact that my upload speed is capped at 60Kbps and I’m lucky if I can get half that — it has been months since I’ve gone through a full day without at least one service interruption. Months. Unfortunately, Time Warner Cable has an exclusive contract with my building so I have no choice but to endure its abysmal service. Last week, as a Time Warner Cable technician entered my home for the sixth time in two months, I realized that this certainly would have spelled serious trouble had it not been for my trusty new back up device.
