But get this…

Kimye bought the house in 2013 for $9 million, and sold it for $17.8 million! If you do the math, that’s almost $9 million in profit!

The 10,000 square foot mansion resides in the exclusive Bel-Air Crest community, and the deal — handled by Matt and Josh Altman from Million Dollar Listing LA — is (apparently) the most expensive sale ever in that area.

Lifestyles of the rich and famous!

iPhone X Component Costs Estimated at $357.50

Apple’s new iPhone X costs $357.50 to make, according to estimates sourced from TechInsights and shared today by Reuters. At an estimated $357.50 to produce with a price tag of $999, the iPhone X has a gross margin of 64 percent, higher than the iPhone 8’s gross margin of 59 percent.



Several of the components in the iPhone X are more expensive than their iPhone 8 counterparts, according to TechInsights. The 5.8-inch edge-to-edge display, for example, costs an estimated $65.50, compared to $36 for the 4.7-inch display of the iPhone 8.

The stainless steel chassis of the iPhone X costs an estimated $36, a significant premium over the $21.50 Apple shells out for the iPhone 8.



Following the launch of the iPhone 8, estimates suggested its raw component cost came in at $247.51, with the cost for the iPhone 8 Plus estimated at $288.08. Those estimates were sourced from IHS iMarkit, a research firm, while today’s come from TechInsights, a company that does device teardowns and analysis.



Component cost estimates from companies like TechInsights and IHS look only at the price of raw components and do not take into account other iPhone manufacturing expenses like research and development, software creation, advertising, and distribution. While interesting, these estimates are not an accurate measurement of Apple’s profit margin for the iPhone X, nor are they an accurate picture of the overall cost of creating the device.



According to Apple CEO Tim Cook, cost breakdowns are generally “much different than the reality.” “I’ve never seen one that is anywhere close to being accurate,” he said in 2015.

Yung Lean Drops “Metallic Intuition” From His Upcoming Album

In just a matter of days Yung Lean will be unleashing his new album, Stranger. Ahead of the delivery, today the Swedish rapper presents yet another tune from the work with “Metallic Intuition.”

When speaking with Zane Lowe, Lean dished, “‘Metallic Intuition’ was the most hip-hop track on the whole album. When I first heard the beat, I was like, ‘Okay, I’m not going to sit on this, I’m going to sit down and actually write something. So I found this flow in my head and I just started writing from there.”

“It’s kind of a natural progress from Warlord, being a very gothic and dark album,” he went on to add regarding the project. “Then [this album] being a bit lighter. But ‘Metallic Intuition’ still being there as a kind of a shape shifter in some way.”

Press play above to stream “Metallic Intuition,” and don’t forget, Stranger arrives November 10.
