They are free to list the price and then change it as much as they like. Prices for lots of things change regularly. But they can't tell you you'll pay X and then when you click "Buy" they charge you Y. Is that what you're upset about, or simply that they raised the price before you clicked Buy and the transaction was completed.
I just bought the Harry Potter collection in Hd in the U.S. for $10. That's a stunning deal. Also picked up Lord of the Rings trilogy, in Hd, for $10. Glad I waited on some of these titles...
Well, Jobs' second run with Apple was certainly fantastic, but his first run was a mixed bag, leading to his firing (can anyone imagine Jobs being fired the second time around?). And NeXT didn't exactly set the world on fire, either. Before it found a small niche for itself, it burned through a lot of cash, employees and grand promises. I believe Apple can thrive without Jobs, but it does feel like it's getting slower at turning around new products, and trying new...
Apple 's Maps will fall dangerously behind if they treat it as a standard iOS feature to be updated once in a while. Certain strategic features, like Maps and Siri, should be improved much more aggressively.
  That's not what "free market" means. Free market means that people/businesses are free to offer whatever products/services they want, and sell them for what they want, and consumers are free to buy those products or services if they want. It generally results in the best products at the best prices...more so than in any other system.   A free market allows a cable company to require you to buy bundles instead of ala carte channels. A free market lets you decline to pay...
Wonderful. The government once again inserts itself into private industry, to "fix" something that the free market is already fixing (ie, people are increasingly dropping their cable boxes altogether...when that desertion rate reaches a certain level, cable companies will change their ways, or they'll go out of business and be replaced by a better model). But who needs to let someone invent a superior product (like Netflix, Apple, Amazon, etc.), when you can have a huge...
I disagree.   Apple's MO **used to be** to not talk about future products, but to release fresh updates at a reasonable rate, which kept customers happy. Even though Apple was silent, you could trust that it was still in the game and that investing in APple products was not a dead end. That MO worked but it is entirely different than Apple's current MO for many of its product segments like the Mac Pro.   The *new* MO is to still not talk about future products, *and* to...
I don't think Tim Cook should be canned (yet), but I'm sick of Apple dropping the ball in so many areas --ie, the Mac Pro, all pro apps, iWork, etc. -- and not understanding that if you leave your customers without reasonable solutions for so long, you should at least have the decency talk to them about it, and talk about what you're going to do about it in the future. But Fortress Apple can't bring itself to say anything, creating unnecessary angst for people who had...
Hey, Laurene, why don't you speak out for all the people who have valuable skills that can significantly help our economy right now, but who can't get a green card???   They're a lot more worthy of our help than the illegal aliens who cross our border with barely any skills and a propensity to suck up precious resources through all the social services they latch on to, but never pay taxes to sustain (education, school lunches, emergency room service, public...
As if Jobs wasn't aware of this major new development in the cellular world before the Verizon CEO told him about it at a trade show. Come on.
