it does seem that way, and to some extent i think you may be right (it's a new media more than a new technology, but still, they're just feeling their way trying to figure out how to set it up) the problem is the same costs don't really apply, and the fabrication costs are virtually nil after the initial creation cost (which is fixed) so it's pretty abusive of them to charge such high prices. they're not engraved on gold chips, criminy !
