Would You Pay a Premium to Get Your Hands on a Gadget?

Despite the economic downturn, tech toys like the Kindle and Nintendo Wii have sold out online and in stores across the country. Even with a 50 percent increase in Wii shipments, there's still a major shortage, with retailers like Wal-Mart resorting to a one-per-person purchasing cap limit.

In desperate need of a Wii this holiday season? Sites like eBay are offering the little white console for two-thirds more than you would pay at stores like Best Buy or Wal-mart — for a grand total of $310 for a new unit on eBay and $365 on Amazon. How does that make you feel?
