    Someone please tell me what is a “cyberwhistle” and why would anyone want one, especially when the price is $50?

    You would think ol’ Elon would be more concerned about his app outages that lock users out of their cars…

    You'd think!!! The "cyberwhistle" seems to be a gimmick, and I read somewhere that it sold out.

    I believe it is a gimmick and if the stories of it selling out are true then I’d like to know how many were sold. Still, I’ve learned over the years you can always find someone willing to make a purchase no matter how ridiculous.

    I'm reminded (and showing my age) of the Pet Rock!

    (Laughing)….I remember the pet rock. According to the Wiki page, the seller sold over a million pet rocks at $4 each. Only in America, right?

    I do get his point about the Apple cloth. I'm not paying $19 for it. You can get a 16.9 Oz bottle of Whoosh with 2 cleaning cloths (large and small) for $14.99 on Amazon.

    I hear you, but I’d pay $19 for an Apple cloth before I’d pay $50 for a whistle….(Laughing)

    Yeah, I think he was just being funny making his point. I don't have any use for a whistle at any price. I think I still have my Boy Scout whistle somewhere.
