Do They Ship It In A Diamond-Encrusted Carton?



When I saw this post from Cory Doctorow over at BoingBoing for a ergonomic stand, I was excited because trying to use a laptop in an economy seat is pretty well impossible. So off I went to check it out. Everything looked good until I went to the checkout only to see these shipping costs:

FedEx: Ground: $31.64
FedEx: International Economy: $71.03
FedEx: International Priority: $79.63
UPS: Worldwide Expedited: $88.59
UPS: Worldwide Express: $106.84

A $20 item that costs, at the least, $32 to ship? Aaah, no thanks.
