David Ciccone found a fancy pink Zune on eBay. Fair enough — some underfed member of the Zune design team needs a little extra money so he/she decided to sell their Microsoft Billmas present. But get this: it’s now selling for $920 on the ‘Bay.
Clearly the invisible hand of the market is at work here. Brown, black and white are so passe at this point that only pink will do. So someone — some mad-eyed bidder on eBay — must have the pink. Scarcity breeds deep and inexplicable desire.
