Lamborghini's TL700 £1,800 Android Phone is sick, in the classic, dictionary-defined, non-street sense…

Ugh! When will these "high end" companies ever learn! Simply whacking your brand name onto the side of some gold plated crap and then charging top dollar for it really isn't good enough, even for a coke-addled, jumped-up, self-aggrandizing zillionaire….

Jonathan Weinberg Top Fives Leave a Comment

If only he'd have done it with his gadgets though and shown off his status with some bling, rather than trying to blow up the Houses of Parliament.

So, as it's Firework Night today, what better way to mark it than with five top sparklers from the techno-world.
