    WOW.

    AUDIOQUEST - DIAMOND HDMI 0.6M (1Ft 11") for $935.
    Thats only a bit more than $450 a foot.


    I wonder how much better it is than the
    AUDIOQUEST - CINNAMON HDMI 0.6M (1Ft 11") for $63
    about $30 a foot.

    Interesting that:
    This product can only be shipped to US addresses.

    Scroll down to the AC power cords...


    Here's a $1,700 outlet box and cover:

    This one may take the crown: a $45,000 (yes, forty-five thousand USD) 2
    meter speaker cable pair:

    Maybe you need it to feed a signal to this 152 inch, $500k plasma TV?

    http://catalog2.panasonic.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/ModelDetail?
    storeId=11201&catalogId=13051&itemId=490650&catGroupId=14624
    &surfModel=TH-152UX1&displayTab=O

    I suppose if people have that kind of money they are allowed to be
    stoooopid.

    That's just MusicDirect; they don't want to deal with international
    shipping. You can buy this stuff through BestBuy, among others.

    Well, I doubt that any home-theatre people would buy a professional 1.85
    cinema display. That's the sort of thing they put in theatres. But no
    one , even a theatre, needs a 1000 dollar HDMI cable.

    there's something srsly messed up with that.

    There's always this iPhone 4S priced at "only" US$5,900.
    <http://www.pcauthority.com.au/Gallery/277718,bling-tech-worlds-most-extravagant-smartphones.aspx/4>

    Or if you're not an iPhone fan, you may find another over-priced mobile in
    the PCAuthority.com.au gallery.
    <http://www.pcauthority.com.au/Gallery/277718,bling-tech-worlds-most-extravagant-smartphones.aspx/1>

    For those not worried about their budget, there's always this iPhone
    priced at the miniscule amount of US$3.3million.
    <http://www.pcauthority.com.au/Gallery/277718,bling-tech-worlds-most-extravagant-smartphones.aspx/8>

    But, for those with a real lack of sense there's this iPad2 for a mere
    US$7.7million, with real "dinosaur bone" in the case ... and there's the
    optional matching iPhone too.

    For only $400 this power cord protects your 50 or 60 Hz input from
    RFI.

    Can get the same HDMI 1.4 cable from Canada computers for $9.95 apiece.

    Some of the comments on the Best Buy website are amusing:
