Ok people, I get it now. None of you read the article. The $1500 is in Australian. It will be around $1100 in the US. Seeing as the most expensive jeans on the US Dr. denim site is $85 I guess it fits.

Somebody needs to figure out how to get an entire article in the headline.
How the **** someone can comment with such self-righteousness on something they didn't even read is just beyond me. I guess.

Everything in the world is covered up in plum stupidity right now.
I couldn't agree more.

EDIT: "Only 450 pairs are available, but they come in men's and women's styles. You also won't be paying much of a premium, either. Pay AUD $1,499 (about $1,112 US) and you'll get both the Flip 3 and the jeans to match."

Of course, but what happens when the $25 jeans become $40 simply because people comment on your post without reading it?
I'll still stick with buying the $40 jeans. I don't need jeans that have a $400 over priced modification rendering them useless. Nor do I need a $1000 phone. That is at least $1400 I will put somewhere else. That would buy me an entire wardrobe and a phone not just a single pair.

Techspot needs to title these topics GoldDiggers. When the price of a product has been marked up over 50%. That is exactly what the seller needs to be called. And just to be clear that is what I think about $1000 phones.

As for people commenting on my post without reading it. I hope that wasn't a jab at me, because you are thinking I didn't read the story.

Definitely NOT a jab at you. I was just taking a light jab at the earlier posts in this thread where everyone was talking about paying $1500 for this even though the article says they are $1500 Australian and around $1052 US. Basically the cost of the phone + the jeans if bought separately.

My personal opinion is that I wish everyone had actually read the story, so we could have spent the time more productively. By trashing the worthless pair of jeans.
