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.

Apple actually has reasonable hardware prices and, rather than "pointing fingers", can legitimately attribute the price difference on media to another agent.


I am running an Android tablet I bought from Kogan Australia. It cost me less than half the equivalent iPad would have and it comes with webm and vorbis support built in to the hardware, which Apple utterly lacks.
