I tell you the dollar /  Euro exchange rate is not helping any of this. 
A few days ago it stood at
$1.32 to 1 Euro. Less than a year ago we were at something like $1.10 
for a Euro.
I've been trying to get a project off the ground in Europe and the 
sudden increase has
turned my world upside down. The M series is headed for the $3000 mark, 
which psychologically
is a tough barrier to clear, unless you got money to burn.
