(CNN) -- What do you get when you combine the latest superyacht with an Apple iPad? Answer: The world's most exclusive app.

Custom-made software from German luxury yacht firm Lurssen gives passengers control of everything but the captain's steering wheel -- all with the most leisurely brush of their iPad.

"Solemates," the first pleasure yacht to carry the technology, is currently playing host to flamboyant rap tycoon Sean "P. Diddy" Combs, girlfriend Kim Porter and their daughters D'Lila and Jessie, confirmed the yacht's charter firm.

Using complimentary iPads, the millionaire mogul and his family will have control of all the shipboard entertainment and climate systems, the blinds and lights in their cabins, and could even have their Pina Coladas topped-up at the tap of an icon.

I thought this was interesting. Pretty sure this falls in the tech section since it has to do with a iPad and such.

Well then, if it's not completely controlled by that toy then this article is misinformation.

Kind of misleading. It only controls entertainment, blinds, lighting and such. Oh, and if you want some room service. Simple apps most anything can do. I guess Jobs gets some good publicity out of this.

For all of the people ranting about how much money he's spending/making. Money isn't everything, money buys you matter. You can still live a crappy life if you're rich and live a good one if you're poor.
