I remember once seeing an item for sale at a hamfest.  It was a  
fairly new transceiver, IIRC.  Anyway, the seller posted a price for  
it which was fairly high, but then also posted that every 10 minutes  
(or some interval like that) he would lower the price.  And he did.

I guess it was an inverse auction... start high, and work downwards.   
Anyway, after not too long.. maybe an hour, once of the interested  
"lookers" caved in and bought the rig.  I recall chatting with the  
seller later in the day, and he said that he would have kept reducing  
the price until the hamfest was over if he hadn't sold it.  I guess  
we'll never really know!  :)
