My friend's running out of space on his hard drive, so I'm like: "yo, I TELL YOU WHAT, you can get a 1.5TB hard drive EZPZ for $70, friend."
I tell him to hop on Newegg, and the 1.5TB drives are around $150, and my response to hearing this is an obvious: "wat".
So I checked, and sure enough, the drives were indeed that expensive. He wasn't lying to me.
Now I must ask, why the price gouging? Is it because of the tsunami in Japan? :/
