Re: Funny, but the solution is obvious...
"Or do you want to spend $390.00 for an iron that has all these features in to read a barcode /q code tag that contains the same information that's on a human readable tag already on the shirt?"
Read much? The cost for the additional components should be $20 at retail, not $350.
That doesn't make it a good idea at all, but it's not so ridiculously priced to make the comparison obvious to everyone (at least while it doesn't have an Apple logo on it).
