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.

This argument would make sense if Microsoft has increased the European prices after getting the fine, but that's not the case. Even before receiving the fine the Eorpeab prices were considerably higher than the American prices. It does not explain that australian prices are higher or that Adobe and Apple have higher prices
