    You should buy a spare or two!
  • I wonder if protects from glitches causing USB hard locks in noisy environs. Intel chipsets, at least, are terrible at falling foul of this. Could be some unhappy customers thinking it'll be smooth sailing paying that much.

    We have the vastness of the internet and yet billions of people decided to spend most of their time within a horribly designed, fake-news emporium of a website that sucks every possible piece of personal information out of you so it can sell it to others. And they see nothing wrong with that.

    I see that listing too for US $59,959.00 but it's the 36 sold that I find even harder to believe!!!!!?

    Must be a popular item seeing that they have sold millions of dollars worth of this item! :)

    Elsewhere on eBay they list for $39 so I guess the 36 sold might even be real. Some purchaser in a government agency puts up a listing for an item that needs to be purchased, orders the items himself personally for $39 each and then sells them as the eBay identity to the government agency. In the process the corrupt purchaser pockets $59,920 per unit x 36 = $2,157,120 in his pocket.

    I've seen purchasers setup a middle man as a supplier, usually a relative, and then purchase from this supplier. But I've never seen anything like this before, but I do believe they have "sold" 36 of them, maybe to Elon, he is used to paying a "high" price.
