One, contrary to iSuppli’s dumb reporting, you’re not buying an bunch of components glued into molded plastic. You’re paying for the design and engineering, not the components.

Two, if you think a “Bluetooth adaptor” and a bunch of batteries is enough to get sound synced to two distinct Bluetooth devices, get distinct battery status, pause audio when one of them is removed from the ear, and so forth, I think we can end this discussion here.

Tomorrow morning, I’ll tell my hardware colleague that his job is irrelevant because all he does is solder some $3 stuff from China and anyone can do that.
