The Value of a Dollar ⇢ »

No one cares about $5 unless it’s a tip or part of a meal. This is so weird to me. No one haggles over $5 on the price of a car, but it seems that everyone needs a tip calculator to determine if they should pay 21.50 or $22.00 for a meal.

Good stuff from Allan Tucker. I’ve often thought about this same idea, but in terms of apps on the App Store. It’s always amazed me that people will complain to no end about paying $0.99 for an app that doesn’t do exactly what they want. Marco Arment touched on this as well. It’s nice to know that I’m not alone in feeling this way.
