colinneagle writes "The Burj Al Arab hotel in Dubai, considered by some to be the most luxurious hotel on the planet, recently announced that it will be doling out 24-carat gold plated iPads to guests upon check-in. From there, the tablets will serve as a virtual concierge of sorts, allowing them to access pertinent hotel information.
The hotel, which is the fourth tallest in the world, not surprisingly, is anything but cheap. The Royal Suite, for instance, checks in at $18,776 per night. The funny thing is, if you can afford such an exorbitant room, isn't it likely that you already have a gold-plated iPad?"
