Re: Who needs analysts?

@ djstardust You forgot two from relatively recently.

The wired USB keyboard (with numeric keypad) used to be about £39 (? I think that was the UK price). The mini Bluetooth keyboard was a bit more. The old style trackpad was £59 (again I think). All took normal AA batteries although you could opt for the fruity flavour rechargeables+charger if you wanted to.

Now you're looking at £129 for the new keyboard (£99 for the trackpad?) that are bluetooth only and have a fixed built in battery (yet charge via a USB to lightning cable). But it comes in Space grey and rose gold! Wow, hardly justifies a 2x/3x price increase.
