It's true, people are more likely to think something is valuable and worth buying if it costs more. One of Starbucks' chief innovations that led to their success was charging $3+ for something that everyone else was selling for 50 cents. People are schmucks.

A little more leeway on the spelling of TK would be nice. That is NOT an easy name to spell.

Also, the TV question is probably too obscure, judging by the low % it has, and this is coming from someone with an Economics degree, albeit a few decades ago.

In the spirit of not just complaining, but offering a replacement, I had a quick Google, but it doesn’t look like there are any suitable alternatives. Bar people who are equally obscure. Possibly, TV should go the way of TZ!?
