Fewer than $10?!?!?!

Speaking about the imminent international release of BBC’s iplayer (only for ipad?!), BBC director general Mark Thompson said that it will cost “a small number of dollars per month, definitely fewer than 10”.

There’s the whole idiotic argument over whether to say 10 items or fewer, but I don’t think I’ve heard ANYONE ever say fewer than X $,£,RMB, or anything.
