I've never seen a company as cheap as Apple

What does $350 get you? On my iPod Photo for $50 more it got me video cables, a case, a dock, a CD, USB cable, a firewire cable, earphones, two sets of earbud covers, and a charging brick, and of course the iPod.

On my new iPod 5G Video that I got today it got me the iPod, a USB cable, earphones, and a piece of plastic. No way to do video out, no way to charge outside of hooking it up to a USB port, hell not even a fricking case. A damn case. What does that cost apple.....a buck? Cheap cheap cheap Apple.

Hey but at least it came in a pretty box.....small...but pretty.

What is annoying the heck out of me the most, and instigated this rant, is the price of the video cables. Most places I'm seeing online its around $50. Total and complete ripoff. These cables are worth $10 in parts at most. WTH is going on with this company? I'm sorely tempted to take this damn thing back.
