1. Welcome to the new Styleforum!

    We hope you’re as excited as we are to hang out in the new place. There are more new features that we’ll announce in the near future, but for now we hope you’ll enjoy the new site.

    We are currently fine-tuning the forum for your browsing pleasure, so bear with any lingering dust as we work to make Styleforum even more awesome than it was.

    Oh, and don’t forget to head over to the Styleforum Journal, because we’re giving away two pairs of Carmina shoes to celebrate our move!

    Please address any questions about using the new forum to support@styleforum.net

    Cheers,

    "Monocle has teamed up with BlackBerry to produce 100 unique Bold 9700 handsets. We have created our own wallpapers for the screens and each device comes pre-loaded with Monocle’s 25/25 travel guides to the best business cities and resorts in the world. We have also created a special strap. They have 16GB cards and are also supplied with battery, charging pod, world charger, media player headset, USB and gift packaging." Its got wallpapers!!! [​IMG] You've got to hand it to them to have the balls to try and pull this one off. This speaks volumes about the Monocle readership.

    They should do a feature on reel to reel tape machines. It seems very Monocular.

    Expansys has, however, already begun accepting advance orders for the Bold 9700, which it has priced at a VAT and postage inclusive price of £422 ($696/€465) SIM free.

    What a fucking joke, a 125% markup for some wallpapers and a logo. I hereby boycott Monocle and all its shitty products from here on out.

    Monocle-branded fountain pens and typewriters. You'd be like a pulsing neutron star of pretentiousness. [​IMG] [​IMG]
