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.

Nope, that's the story title. I'm afraid we're going to have to revoke your Internet privileges until you learn what a thread is. To start you off, try clicking the show parent button on your post then on my post then on each post until you reach the comment that started this particular thread of conversation. There you'll see that we were specifically discussing Apple being different to Microsoft and Adobe because it's not their stuff that is overpriced but the media they are reselling. The price of that media is set by the media companies, and as discussed Apple stick a flat rate 30% on any price in the app store meaning that it's not them who are overcharging Australians.
