Re: Money for old rope.

It's not just the cost injection molding (and other manufacturing costs) - they also provide a free app and web service for sharing the content, so they have to amortize software costs as well. To say nothing of R&D necessary to build the entire system in the first place.

I love it when people wonder out loud why a product costs more than its component parts, as if those parts magically assembled themselves into the complex configuration by their own volition.
