i know this was a rhetorical question, but...

you can import the entire 7 volumes of Love Live sunshine BD disks from Amazon Japan for an equivalent of about ~$312 usd on Amazon, and this doesn't include the cost of shipping / importing, which roughly doubles the actual cost to about ~$600 or so.

tl;dr $1000 is enough for about 2 1-cour series (12 episodes), or about 1 2-cour series (24 episodes) if you import from Japan.

I think charging $1000 dollars for a phone is a special kind of greedy, but it's not surprising considering we are talking about Apple.

The logic behind Apple's pricing of iPhone X falls onto the fact that the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 was around $900.
Samsung and Apple have always gone back and forth with the pricing schemes to look "more premium" than the other.
It's the whole "value of brand" perspective in the marketing and business world being applied.

The only reason my girlfriend may end up with one is due to the fact that she skipped any of the iPhone 7 models.
She saved me $800~ last year by not asking for an upgrade.
Unlike most, I actually purchase phones at full MSRP when I get them if they're for her (cheaper/faster that way).
I utilize T-Mobile's "Jump! On Demand" package to lease devices that I know are going to be short-lived (Android devices are upgraded between companies on a quarterly basis).

i changed my mind. if the camera is as impressive as Apple is tounting to be, the iPhone 8 and X are actually pretty good.
it could be a camera solution to people who need to take videos at 4K 60fps, but are on a budget.
for comparison, many 4K 60fps cameras on the market are well above $1000:

LUMIX GH5 4K
msrp: $,1999.99
http://shop.panasonic.com/cameras-and-camcorders/cameras/lumix-interchangeable-lens-ilc-cameras/DC-GH5KBODY.html

Panasonic Hc-X1000 4K Camcorder
msrp: $2,499.99
http://shop.panasonic.com/cameras-and-camcorders/camcorders/HC-X1000.html

Sony PXW-Z100 Pro 4k
$4,299.99 on Amazon

these are fairly "affordable" though compared to this beast:


there was a $200 4K 60fps camera, which seemed too good to be true, and it was:
it can only "record" 4K 60fps for 0.5 second. not even a full 1 second.
http://www.eoshd.com/2013/03/nikon-v1-shooting-4k-60fps-raw-for-200/

reminder that Galaxy S8/plus aren't capable of 4k 60fps, and they are Samsung's current flagship smartphones.

Apple hasn't made a good phone since 1984, so I think I will stick with buying Galaxy Notes whenever I am forced to upgrade.

probably to avoid having their device called "nein" (no in German), much like Microsoft.

there's a new headline

New iPhones and iOS 11 Promise to Kick-Start Augmented Reality

I guess they will do what they can to hype it up to justify the $1000 price tag
