Pounds for Dollars

Monday, September 04, 2006

I was in London recently and fell in love with a BlueTooth headset, the Nokia BH-800. Had to have it, didn't care what it cost. 99 pounds, which is something like $170 in real money, or was at the time. Didn't care.

Fast forward a month. I've gained a few pounds due to bad Uno's pizzas on AA and a friend sends me a like to Amazon where the headset is available for $99. I checked Car Phone Warehouse (great store) and it's still 99 quid in the UK.

What. The. Heck.

I've noticed this before, I guess, but it really just hit me. Pounds for dollars. Wow. Amazing that anyone in the UK can afford a TV, really.

Oh, side note, this thing weighs 9 grams, which if it were a controlled substance would get you into a nice prison, but for a headset it just sits in your ear without effort. I got the black version, took off the Star Trek clip, and it is really discreet.
