maybe they had such a need and maybe they didn't. it's *their* money
and *they* get to decide how to spend it. not you.

you're also not in a position to know why they chose to pay a premium,
nor is it any of your business either.

as i said, supply and demand. if people want to pay more than apple's
asking price, then apple's price is too *low*. apple can't make them
fast enough.

you should have called an ambulance rather than risk a collision. 

you've mentioned on several occasions that you've already had more than
one crash on your record, which means you're not a very good driver.

if only *you* would put things into perspective.
