I saw this on Slashdot and I thought it was a joke until I went to the site. Yes, it's a Cat 5 cable that's selling for $100 a foot! Who in their right mind would buy this?

Someone who knows more about audio equipment than computers may just fall for that. I've seen people that do A/V for a living buy cables similar to this, it is pretty funny. Especially when the cables are plugged into wall jacks that are fed by old and crusty Cat5.

Yup. Investing a bit more in your cable its not a bad thing. But if your spending 100$ a foot in a CAT5 cable, your better use that money to gain some formation in electronics for example.

Its just plain stupid !!
