How much for that Belkin cable? Margin of 1,992%?

How much for that Belkin cable?

This local council paid HOW MUCH for an SD card?!

I don't know - the article doesn't actually say and I couldn't find a link.

I'm sure there's some really juicy numbers in the survey - but please why not actually give at least the equivalent of they spent £#### on an Xgb card.

Bearing in mind that 100% margin is a doubling in cost price, coughing up a 1095 per cent margin on an SD memory card. is 11 times bigger than that. But on what starting price?

Devil's in the detail.

The quote is my comment on last year's version of this story and pretty much stands without needing to be modified. Either a link to the survey or some indication of actual prices paid would provide some much needed context.
