Apple has announced two new colors for the Apple Watch Sport line at today's Hey Siri, Give Us A Hint event. Originally released in silver and space gray 7000 series aluminum, now users have option of picking up the Apple Watch Sport in both gold and rose gold colors. These aren't real gold, of course, although Apple does sell watches made of genuine gold and rose gold. Instead, these are the exact same Apple Watch Sport model, with gold-colored aluminum.
The new gold and rose gold Apple Watch models are shipping starting today. You can pick one up now.

Marshawn Lynch, running back for the new Super Bowl champion Seattle Seahawks, has been spotted rocking the brand new Monster 24k headphones. In fact, Lynch was even seen dancing with himself after the Super Bowl XLVIII win in the locker room following the big win. The Monster 24k is backordered and hard to find at the moment, so we thought it was cool that Lynch was rocking a pair in the wild. You can grab yourself a pair of the $280 headphones over on the Monster Web site.

The fine folks over at Computer Choppers have decided it best to take an average, everyday Macbook Air and deck it out in 24 karat gold. As if that wasn’t enough, they also covered the Apple logo in multi-colored sapphires, which we actually think looks kind of mint. To complete the whole package, they’ve even gone ahead and gold-plated the MacBook Air SuperDrive as well. After all, you don’t wanna be rocking the iced out computer, only to have to break out the old and busted optical drive, do you? Didn’t think so.
Check out the 24k MacBook Air gallery for more images.

As most of us know by now, the Iron Man movie with Robert Downey Jr. will be coming out May 2. Here is your chance to win your own 18K gold phone. This version of the LG Shine was on display this week at the CTIA 2008 to help promote the flick. April 15, When the Insidethesuit site launches April 15, you can enter the contest and fill yourself with behind the scene footage if you just can’t wait for the movie to come out. We figure it is worth the entry for no other reason than the resale value of gold these days.

At VoodooPC‘s section of HP‘s CES booth, we got a look and some specs about their Elemental series Omen AU, a completely gold-plated PC, covered in 24 karat gold. Sporting the classic Voodoo wiring job and with support for up to triple SLI, the entirely water-cooled, quad-core system seriously rocks. The price tag is enough to by a nice car, however, at $22,000. Only two have been sold thus far, but I imagine Flava-Flav will be calling to have them put one on a chain soon enough.
Sure you’ll need a second mortgage to enjoy this system, but it’s one of the few pieces of technology on the floor you can say will actually increase in value over time. (The price of gold rising dramatically lately.)
Hit the video and see it first-hand, and check out our photo gallery for some up-close pics.
Robert “402” Bowling from Infinity Ward has posted about some upcoming changes to the Call of Duty 4 beta on his blog. The most significant announcement is the closing of the beta on September 30th, but he also revealed that two days prior the level cap, which has been at 16 for a couple of weeks after being lifted from the initial cap of 11, will go up to 25. That gives beta testers only two days to jump from 16 to 25 before the beta closes down in anticipation of the game’s release November 5th.
Part of the post hinted that CoD4 had gone gold, but Bowling refused to come right out and say it, saving the announcement for more official channels. He did say that Infinity Ward had received congratulations from the Sony of America and the Xbox 360 certification team, which leaves little room for doubt that the game is in the final stages before shipping.
The beta has been an excellent marketing tool for Infinity Ward since the strength of the game is quite evident from the limited, multiplayer-only test version. Even though the game is likely gold, the beta continues for developers to continue gathering data for the inevitable title upgrades and expansion packs. The raising of the level cap so close to the end of the beta is, speculatively, due to the launch of a certain multiplayer juggernaut a few days prior.
