I came across this great marketing term today: Snobmoddities - the phenomenon of turning completely mundane commodities into chic, popular luxury items or goods, offering consumers a bewildering number of varieties of what were once invisible parts of daily life.

Think of all the consumer items that now command premium prices for diminished returns:
  • Water - Put a resource that literally falls from the sky in a pretty bottle and we'll pay $1.39 for it.
  • Coffee - Starbucks, anyone?
  • Shampoo - What is the difference between the $3 bottle and the $20 bottle? A couple of commercials.
The list goes on and on.


Don't hate on teh starbucks punk!
