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.

The industry is forcing customers to buy? Excuse me? Is someone pointing a gun at you and telling you to go to an electronics store to buy this and that?

No-one's forcing you to buy that latest gadget. Leave it to the store if you don't like it, and no-one will still be able to sue you.
