What could make an iPod Touch worth $2,100?

It's the special Prince edition — and it doesn't even have all of Prince's music in it.

There are suckers born every minute. I would bet that some will rush right out and get one.

If it touched me in the right place maybe.

How sad. The special Prince editions should indeed have all of his recorded work. It should be in the Apple Lossless Codec, to better enjoy his tunes.

I bet it won't fit on the too small touch.

If it had none of his music it would be worth more to me.

I would gladly pay $2,100 for a special Prince edition if it came bundled with a signed replica of his famous sequined glove.

Yeah, well... Prince's pants (Warning: NSFW!!!!) didn't even have all it's fabric on it either. I think that's a theme with him, less is more, or at least somehow artistic, yadda yadda...

Obama's teleprompter app.

"worth" $2100? It'w worth whatever some fool will pay for it. I am guessing they think there are enough fools out there to make it worth while.

Being loaded with Obama speeches, and sold on eBay by Queen Elizabeth?

People who buy this gewgaw 21st century gadgetry that's tied to comm interfaces that'll be obsolete within the next 5-8 years (even FW400 is off the current macs anymore, and that only appeared about 1999 or thereabouts) in the hope that its "collectability" will somehow make it increase in value and therefore justify the hyper-multiplied price over the non-special-edition model are complete morons. in my opinion, of course.

Of course, if you really want a purple ipod and no other color will do, it may be worthwhile to buy this one regardless of price. i remember thinking that the "U2 ipod" of a few years back, in black and red versus the standard ubiquitous white ones, was kind of neat. but i still don't own an ipod; i'm still sporting a "discman S2" to the gym or on the jog with me, to play the gazillions of CDs i own and don't have the patience to now "rip" on some shitty lossy compression-compromised format to fit on an ipod.

oh well.
