Today’s Bizarre Product


Actually, it’s not the product – it’s the pricing. James Kendrick provides the fish, the barrel, and the smoking gun in Cool Macromedia Flash Player for Pocket PC for only … $499!?:

I am sitting here hitting my head against the wall. Literally. In a move that no one on the planet can understand Macromedia has stopped providing the free Flash Player for Pocket PC and replaced it with a paid stand alone program that costs $499. I’m not kidding, they expect Pocket PC owners to pay more for a flash player than they probably paid for their device.

I’ll bet a lot of executive thought went into this one.
