Actually, I'm surprised that hasn't happened yet. It is a distinct 
possibility in the ebook world for readers to drop their prices like 
a stone and the profit made up in the charges for ebooks (and other 
media someday perhaps?). When I worked in the AV industry, companies 
would give away overhead projectors and charge like demons for the 
transparency film. Consumables, baby, like ink cartridges for printers.

Our truest response to the irrationality of the world is to paint or 
sing or write, for only in such response do we find truth.
