Editorial I hear often that when something new appears that "competition is good". The primary reasons competition is seen as good, are: it drives down prices; it gives consumers more choice; it pushes technology forward, quicker. Competition is not good because: competition is why consumers have to choose between HD-DVD and BluRay; competition is why DRM exists; and more. In this article, each of the supposed benefits of competition will be looked at in more detail.

It was a discussion point. I think you're trying way to hard to read something about it. Political? Ha! Whatever, politics I could care less about. Companies screw over consumers because they won't work together - that's it. That's your 'philosophy'.

Those who think everything has meaning, will never find any.
