Past the two Bentleys in the driveway and beyond the pool and mini water park, the home theater and a sports bar hung with enough memorabilia to equip a basketball team, Tom DeMark has his office — a dark, wood- paneled lair with six computer screens. The office abuts the master bedroom of his Scottsdale, Arizona, home, Bloomberg Markets magazine reports in its December issue. It has to, DeMark says, because he often gets up after midnight to scrutinize charts of stocks, bonds, commodities and currencies to see if his numerical system for predicting their behavior is working. Since he started in the investment business in 1971, DeMark has advised some of the biggest names on Wall Street, men such as Paul Tudor Jones and Leon Cooperman. He’s a consultant to Steven Cohen, founder of SAC Capital Advisors LP, which manages $14 billion, and John Burbank, founder of $3.4 billion Passport Capital LLC. SAC and Passport each own a piece of DeMark’s company, Market Studies LLC. DeMark has a phone on his desk that’s dedicated to Cohen.

Seems like the obvious possibilities are:

a)

b)

c)

d)

e) Regular handle, Zamboni-shaped cradle

f) other

Follow-up question: how many other people have Steve-only phones? Surely DeMark is not alone.

    I usually fall down around midnight after scrutinizing 1000 ML of wine, 15 cigarettes, and hacking into my ex girlfriend’s facebook page.

    :(

    I have one of those, but I never managed to get it to work…

    Also, since I got it, a couple of airliners crashed nearby, funnily enough.

    Coincidentally, a couple of jumobjets have crashed down in the neighbourhood recently… what luck!

    It looks like any normal phone, but is FBI-tapped. He also has a Salvador Dali's Lobster Telephone to receive calls from the other Steve.
