Martin has just informed me that the starting price of a MacBook is now £929. Okay, it's aluminium now but a £100 price increase in a year? I thought technology was supposed to be getting cheaper! Apparently it's because sterling is worth so little these days, but £100? Still seems too steep.
It annoys me how much contempt Apple appear to show to their customers. It annoys me more that people keep lapping it up (myself included). Rant aside, it's interesting that a company can fly in the face of what is accepted good practice (good customer service, etc) and still keep racking up the profits (remember that Wired article?). Will their behaviour ever bite them on the bum?
