I don't know whether there was an old fashioned typo, or if Old media's new media consultant needs to fact check via the internet!!
John Biggs wrote an article for the New York Times discussing the
Samson G-Track - USB Condenser Mic with Audio Interface called:
"A U.S.B. Microphone for Podcasts, or Solo Side Projects"
"This $40 device connects directly to a PC or Mac and has headphone and line-in jacks on the bottom. "
It lists at $199 - $129 is one of the cheapest prices I can find... ah old media needs to fact check via the internet!!
