via ChoiceCheapies came across The Warehouse is selling a stupidly expensive Swarovski Bugatti Chiron Car.

 

Some of the choicecheapies comments are funny

 

Also have to wonder
How/why The Warehouise have these listed.
Why is it listed under toys " Home / Toys & Baby / Toys Vehicles & Remote Control / Play Vehicles / Swarovski Bugatti Chiron Car Black"

I suspect you'd mostly get the ones with plenty in the bank, so you may in fact..!

 

 

They're the worst IME, constantly complaining that things are not like they were in England and wanting to change it to be the same...

I'm not sure if this annoys me or makes me smile, but a store on Trade Me is listing a new iMac Pro for several hundred dollars more than it would cost direct from Apple.
Competitor analysis obviously not a big thing with that firm!

I expect the store's aiming for those customers who don't do competitor analysis ...

Well, on an $8,000 computer you'd have to hope that number was vanishingly small!

Wow! Those 1722 must tithe a hell (pun intended) of lot more than 10% to keep the bishop and his wife in Mercedes.

I have to admire the sheer cheek of the site "IconsDB" for offering an icon alongside a paragraph clearly stating that the icon may not be distributed by any site other than "icons8".

iPadOS 13. Actually 13.1. Didn’t have the beta and downloaded this morning. Had read a lot about it - a huge number of really great new features.  Makes me like and appreciate the iPad Pro even more. Terrific.
