Sony Offers Discount, Screws Us

Still have an old camcorder hanging around? Is it expensive? Then Sony wants you to go to hell. They're offering a trade-in on the SonyStyle website but, as some wise folks soon discovered, the deal was a bit weak. For example...

Well...the calculator says my Sony DCR-HC90 in mint condition with all the accessories is worth $300.

The DCR, new, still costs $719. Therefore, for someone to get an upgrade discount on a brand new Handycam, they are required to bend over while Sony reams them gently with a traffic cone. Thanks, fellas!
