    What is the world's most expensive telephone number?

    In April 2004 a man from China purchased 135 8585 8585 in an auction beating out 70 other bidders.

    What is the most expensive tie in the world?

    Looking for a tie for father's day? Look no further, what father would not like to own the world's most expensive tie?

    Created by designer Satya Paul for the Suashish Diamond group and displayed at a 2004 Mumbai fashion show by Salman Khan, the world's most expensive tie made it's debut.

    The tie is made of pure silk and studded with 261 diamonds.

    Price: Rs 1 crore.

    OK, so what is a crore? Why, a crore is 100 lakhs, of course.

    So what is a lakhs? A lakh is equal to 100,000 (in this case; rupees).

    That makes the world's most expensive tie worth the following:
    • 1 crore.
    • 100 lakhs.
    • $250,000.00 USD

    What was the world's most expensive computer game?

    7 years in the making and over $20,000.000.00 in development costs the 1999 computer game Shenmue, created for Dreamcast by Sega has become the world's most expensive computer game.

    Shenmue is a role playing game with built in mini games and at the time was one of the most realistic computer games on the market.

    Shenmue is not for everybody. It's a game rich in story, visuals, and environmental stimuli, but light on overall game play. Fans of whodunits and RPGs will take quicker to the game's overall premise, but there is enough to please the casual gamer as well. While Shenmue is revolutionary, the game is far from perfect. Regardless of its many shortcomings, though, Shenmue is an adventure worth experiencing - provided you have the time to invest.

    Hi Shanthi,

    You are right... There is no use with all these expensive items... We can have a tie or a watch or a house for the income we earn.... That also gives the same effects as these expensive items... A less expensive watch also can provide you with the correct time....
