iPod Shuffle - Actually worth nothing!

According to Apple, iPod Shuffle comes with:

iPod Shuffle
Dock
Earphones
Quickstart Guide


We pay $49 for 1gb version

Earphones worth $29 - Link

Dock worth $29 - Link

$29 + $29 = $58

iPod Shuffle worth: -$8

Apple's new ad should be:
BUY IPOD SHUFFLE WITH NO ACCESSORIES, AND WE PAY YOU $8!

I just thought it was kind of weird.

That's a good point, I'd never thought of it like that. It becomes an even better if you get a refurb, which is only $39.

Hahaha! That's pretty cool actually! Now get your entrepreneurial heads on and figure out how you can dissect this package and make some money!

It's not that the shuffle is too cheap, it's more that the separate earphones and dock are too expensive

Every go to a car dealer andbuy a car part? If you bought a Toyota from the Toyota parts depertment and built it yourself it would likely cost $100K

The reason for the high prices for parts both at Apple and Toyota is that customers are willing to pay those prices
