40 bucks for a flipping USB cable?

This is Joseph, all the way from Hong Kong, China. For the past ten months I was residing in US, and have a chance to experience what you guys are expericing. I was really shocked when I get to the Walmart for the first time in my life, "a USB cable for 40 bucks? Seriously, I got too much at home that I dumped them like crap." These cables worth no more than a dollar. Those cables are selling 50 HKD (around 7.50 USD) in HK, and that's still a rob in Hong Kong (usually they give it out for free even you are buying a 20 bucks USB speaker).
