Google Lucky bas... Joshua Topolsky got to use and test Google Glass. "Is it ready for everyone right now? Not really. Does the Glass team still have huge distance to cover in making the experience work just the way it should every time you use it? Definitely. But I walked away convinced that this wasn't just one of Google's weird flights of fancy. The more I used Glass the more it made sense to me; the more I wanted it. If the team had told me I could sign up to have my current glasses augmented with Glass technology, I would have put pen to paper (and money in their hands) right then and there. And it's that kind of stuff that will make the difference between this being a niche device for geeks and a product that everyone wants to experience. After a few hours with Glass, I've decided that the question is no longer 'if', but 'when?'" No wonder Google is going into retail. They need physical stores to sell this.

I know exactly what price fixing is and how it's applied.

You seem to have missed my point about free market capitalism.

I guess it's a similar argument to patent law.
We all have our opinions on that and most are correct though conflicting. It's one of those things like being between a rock and a hard place. Whether they're good or bad for society in general. It's not something I'm willing to devote a lot of time debating, simply because no one can win, we're all right and we're all wrong! And I simply don't have the time.

If you want to buy and use google products, you're welcome to them, I have no problem with you doing so. What I have a problem with is people defending their illegal business practices, in my honest opinion. Practices that were legislated against hundreds of years ago and are still in place today. Being online has nothing to do with it. A law is a law and I feel they are breaking the law!
