In the News If you don't live in the US, this is a pretty common source of irritation: US companies charging crazy markups on products sold in Europe, Asia, Australia, South America, and the rest of the world. The Australian government has had enough of this practice, and started an inquiry into the matter. Yesterday (or today? Timezones confuse me) Apple, Microsoft, and Adobe had to answer questions in a public hearing.

In Bahrain, some US goods (especially clothes) are charged 1USD = 1 Bahraini Dinar when in fact 1 BD = 2.65 USD. But I suspect the business here are as much too blame for that as the originating company.
