Default eCost Price Gouging Based on Zune Colour from eCost

<div class='os_post_top_link'><a href='http://www.ecost.com/ecost/ecsplash/search/search.asp?NavID_Search=false&CurDSN=simple&calledfrom=1&incimage=on&Search=zune&submit1.x=0&submit1.y=0&submit1=Go!#' target='_blank'>http://www.ecost.com/ecost/ecsplash/search/search.asp?NavID_Search=false&CurDSN=simple&calledfrom=1&incimage=on&Search=zune&submit1.x=0&submit1.y=0&submit1=Go!#</a><br /><br /></div>In my eventually-ending quest to find a way to get a Zune as soon as possible after the November 14th date, I've been looking for places that will both carry the Zune, and ship to Canada. There aren't many, but <a target="_blank" href="http://www.ecost.com">eCost</a> is one of them. Here's something strange I noticed though: the prices are different by $29.17 USD based on the colour of Zune you order! Take a look:<br /><br /><img alt="" src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/zt/2006/zune-ecost-nov1.jpg" /><br /><br />Now I'm all for letting the market decide what works and what doesn't, but I can't fathom the reason why eCost would take this approach when <a target="_blank" href="http://astore.amazon.com/thoughtsmedia-20/">Amazon.com</a> is selling all three Zunes for the same amount ($249 USD). What's worse is that eCost isn't even receiving their shipment of Zunes until the 25th of November. Scratch that solution for me!
