*Only* $10k for a unidirectional ethernet cable?!! Oh mama, I've got to get me one of these. I thought these people had hit the light barrier with the $4850 HDMI cable that was offered at Amazon not long ago. Obviously I was wrong.

Did see a documentary recently about a money laundering scheme involving the drug cartels in LA, where they sell fashion underwear for millions. Walk in with a million in cash, money goes to bank in Mexico, company to company, no questions asked. So walk in with your millions of drugs money, buy some of these cables, and be done with it. I think they mentioned people need to report anything above 20,000 USD now? Not sure about the exact amount / limit, but that can simply be fixed. Just make the cables 1 $ cheaper, and 'buy' one at the time. Yea, with much of US on drugs these things make sense,. I do not think people with that much to spare are dumb enough to fall for it, probably hire people who know about that stuff, or have hands on experience. So that is for the FBI to look into. Better to use a drone to send the money :-) Autopilot, multiple waypoints, diamonds. Stealth.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Structuring the IRS has been known to seize assets based on violation of structuring laws even when there was NO underlying illeagal activity... i.e. when Joes pizza shop just accidently made a series of $9,900 deposits. Then there is a long term expensive process required to prove innocence. I'm not making this up. I wish I were. Mark

In the data diode market $10k unit price would be the normal price, unfortunately that ethernet cable isn't unidirectional :-)
