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.

The topic is (and I quote): "Microsoft, Adobe, Apple defend Australian price hikes". Microsoft, Apple and Adobe are all software vendors, only Apple is a significant media retailer.

No, the topic of this thread is Apple overcharging for media.
