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

That article could serve as an example on how a journalist can massage numbers until they're big and scary, without providing a single reference point that would qualify it as "news".

Such as:

- what was the original price?

- overall, what's the share of the cost of those 0,5m Cat5 cables in budget prices?

- have the prices in the US and mainland EU changed too?

But no worries, I understand. While you just start to whine about having to suffer the consequences of leaving the EU, here on the mainland, people still whine about the consequence of entering the Euro, with demonstrations just as convincing.
