I bought an XBOX Live Camera today, because well – because I didn’t have one. Anyway, Best Buy had it in a large security box made of clear plastic. The box is probably close to 8.5 x 11 inches and four inches deep. The packaging for the camera itself was that nearly impenetrable software packaging that’s take a finger off if you aren’t careful.
It cost $39.00.
I also bought a $129 USB flash Drive (8 gigs). It was in the same plastic packaging, but no security box. It would have easily fit into a pocket, unlike the packaging for the XBOX Live Cam.
So why did Best Buy decide to secure a $39 item and not a $130 item? Doesn’t make sense to me.
But it is a pain in the a**.
