If you’re sick of keeping up with the Joneses and getting a new phone every couple years, why not consider one that will last forever? Danish firm Æsir, says it has designed such a phone. It’s made of surgical, stainless steel phone and costs just shy of $8000, or around what it would cost to replace an 16GB iPhone every two years for the next 80 years.
