The right price to pay for your main computer camera and much more

John Gruber, on Daring Fireball, responding to a Washington Post article arguing that a $1,000 smartphone is a luxury and not much more:

This is the same nonsense we hear about Apple’s phones, post-iPhone X. Yes, phones that cost $1,000 or more are expensive. Yes, that’s outside the budget for most people. But why in the world would anyone argue this is “hard to justify”? Phones are, for most people, the most-used computing device in their lives. They are also their primary — usually only — camera. A good camera alone used to cost $500-600.

I found myself nodding in agreement with every word of this post.
