The Great NZ HDMI rip off

I was just flicking through the Dick Smith mailer while eating toast this morning, as you do, when I saw that they have HDMI cables on "special" at $29.99 - saving $29.99, which, if you can't be fucked doing maths involving that many 9s, comes to $59.98.
These cables are described as "Dick Smith Standard HDMI Cable 3m" - so what we are talking about here is almost $60 for 3 metres of STANDARD cable - what the flying fuck is this bullshit?

You may be thinking "The $2 shop HDMI cables are probably junk at $10 - you get what you pay for..." - YOU ARE WRONG.

I accidentally watched documentary about this once and it was also on Fair Go - There is NO video or audio quality difference between a shit cable and a gold plated diamond encrusted cable, you are paying for length (and gold and diamonds in that case).

Dick Smith can suck a Smiths Dick - having said that though, it's not just them so shop smart.
