Get Your 5x the Price Album Here!

Icky Thump USB Drives

I’m a sucker for a gimmick. I’ll buy the deluxe/limited edition/special features/bonus track edition of just about any media type you toss in front of me. Tori Amos is going to stick a seed packet and a little plastic frog in a box with my CD? I’m so there.

However, I draw the line at this craziness… a limited edition thumb drive (or USB drive… whatever) of the newest White Stripes album. 3,333 are alleged to have been made of each version (one Jack, one Meg), and they retail for the low, low price of $57.50 each, or $99.00 for the set.

WTF? $99.00 for an album on a piece of technology I could pick up at the checkout at Target for like $10?

I’m disappointed. I thought they were cooler than this. $5 more I could see.
