May be we should offer to those "marketing genius" a pocket calculator to determine the storage amount needed to store a complete High-Res library ? They advertise " high-Res - DSD - bla bla " , but they design on the base of MP3 file size !
Plus it is INCREDIBLE stupid business decision not to offer a higher capacity version to those who are ready to pay for it !
They stupidly loose the opportunity to make extra margin ?!? .
Apple with the iPAD/iPhone has show that this business model (a low capacity version to atract customer's attention, and a high capacity model that many will finally purchase) is very profitable ! Why don't they just copy this Apple's proven business model ? It is even used in the car industry with their looooong list of options !
