    Default This makes my blood boil...

    I was planning on taking some of my hard earned December gig money (Xmas parties, NYE, etc.) and grabbing a Vestax Spin just to use as a backup.

    Apparently they're on 2-month back order...both in Apple stores and online.

    I knew it would be a big seller...but when was the last time a freakin midi controller sold out?

    It's not like it's a limited edition handmade monome or something.

    Then...I looked on Ebay and saw guys trying to sell a Vestax Spin for as high as 600 bucks.

    W T F ?!?!?!

    On top of that they're posting pictures like this.



    Do they not realize the only reason why the Spin is in demand is BECAUSE it's so cheap?

    Greedy bastards...I hope they choke on some stuffing this Christmas...better yet, I hope no one buys them and they end up having to sell them all at a loss.

    for 600 you could just get the 100, no?

    How dumb can people get?

    Its all about supply and demand. Supply goes down and price goes up. Demand goes up price goes up.

    Supply goes down, demand goes up, price goes up as does the amount of foolish people who think "I must have one no matter what the price because everyone else does!"

    I have no problem with supply and demand.

    It to be expected that folks are trying to capitalize off a hot product during the holiday shopping season.

    My beef is that probably the reason it's on back-order is that Apple didn't stop people from buying multiple quantities, so they're out in the stores and there's all these people sitting on stacks of them.

    the reason it kind of makes sense for them to have them that high in price right now, is because it's almost XMas. How many parents got this on their kids wish list, and how many of them actually know a thing or two about MIDI controllers. It does suck though.

    Then i suggest you improve your moral standing.

    This fucking sucks.

    Supply and Demand is not meant this way otherwise the supply would increase to meet the Demand.
    This is not what Adam Smith had in mind or he would called his treatise the "Rip off Of Nations" not The Wealth of Nations.
    Any slight grasp of Market Equilibrium would show that this is not supply and demand seeing as this seller will no doubt sell very little of his product thus supplying nobody.


    This makes my blood boil as well. I hope the seller gets fucked in the ass by the huge cock of Greed.
