(This is overheard by my brother when digital TV recorders, the kind where you can record a show or movie to a hard-disk or DVD, are relatively new.)

Customer: “Excuse me. I’ve inspected these two types of records — [Product] and [Product]-Plus — but I can’t spot a difference besides the Plus costing €50 more.”

(The employee checks the boxes. Read and write speed are the same, same hard disk size, no difference in cable connections, etc.)

Employee: “Ah, hang on. I’ve spotted it! The Plus version is digital!”

(For those who don’t know, DVD stands for DIGITAL video disk. If you have an analog recorder for DVDs, that would probably cost more since it would be unique!)
