In the News Pocket Informant is one of the most successful PDA applications ever. However, it has not been immune to software piracy. The CEO of WebIS posted an open letter explaining how software piracy is hurting the industry, but also the consumer too and especially small software houses like his.

>>While it is indeed true that $10 is a lot of money in developing countries the people who can actually afford a PDA generally does not live as beggars in the street.


They probably stole the PDA. The creep saw it, and said, "I wouldn't be able to afford this PDA ever, and I'll never buy it anyway, and the current owner has tons of them", and walked off with it. The same reasoning that contributes to software piracy usually results in tangible goods theft, tax cheating, client cheating, vendor cheating, spouse cheating, and more. The fact that anyone here even bothers to post to the contrary in an attempt to justify it is proof of how low this society has sunk.
