I don't have specific questions, but I'm pretty curious about the
overall reasoning.

We are used to products getting cheaper, not more expensive, after
they have been on the marketplace for some time, and the Ben NanoNote
was (due to its own nature) not a huge seller to begin with.

I guess I just don't see what kind of benefit you are expecting to
obtain, and I'll be glad if you could elaborate.

I think it would be great, for transparency's sake, if TuxBrain showed
the original price as well as the discounted one.

Not that I don't trust David, I bought my NanoNote from him and if an
Europe-based shop hadn't been available at the time I would have
probably skipped it altogether due to the high cost of importing
products from the US.
