Unless you have been living under a rock in recent years you will know that everyone has an iPod these days.

If that doesn't make you want to run to the shops to buy the latest one, nothing will.
Back in 2008, footballer and all-round legend David Beckham was given a totally awesome gold plated 32GB Apple iPod touch by his teammates to mark his 100th England cap. The gift was engraved with the England football crest along with the footballer's name and the words "For his 100th England Cap" – don't you wish you had friends like that?
Kirsten Dunst, Naomi Campbell and Paris Hilton have all been spotted with Blackberry phones and they certainly have good taste when it comes to state-of-the-art technology. With the ability to send emails, access the internet and chat to friends, Blackberrys are personal digital assistants as well as portable media players. In her usual over-the-top style, Katie Price apparently had "I Love Alex" emblazoned on her diamond-encrusted, customised handset when she was dating cage-fighter Alex Reid but she has surely had it replaced since they parted ways.
The rich and famous really do have the money to spend on weird and wonderful things. Music star Vanilla Ice reportedly has emotion sensitive lighting hooked up in his super swanky house.

The Queen may have many important errands to run, but there are also many perks to her job. Games maker THQ actually produced a gold-plated Nintendo Wii for her majesty in what was a great PR stunt for the brand. Unfortunately not every Tom, Dick and Harry gets one of these sent to him every day, but one can dream nonetheless.
Lady Gaga is outrageous, eccentric, talented and... a creative director at Polaroid. That's right, the controversial singing sensation helped create the Polaroid GL10, instant mobile printer which uses Zero Ink thermal technology to print out water/tear/smudge-proof photos via your camera or smartphone, with the added bonus of Bluetooth. Cool, huh?
