They raised their prices because they could. Once prices go up they take forever to come back down, assuming they come down at all. They've proven we're willing to pay the artificially inflated prices so there's no reason to back down.
The only way to voice your opposition to such antics is to vote with your wallet. We peons are individually no more than flea bites to a giant, but enough of us "fleas" can bring even a giant to their knees.
Hold off on buying that new shiny until the prices are back to a reasonable if not sane level. I know it hurts (hertz? Sorry) but think of how much farther your money will go towards finally filling that electronic goodie void in your life once the prices come back down. Instead of spending 1K on a single device now, that same amount may get you TWO devices later! =-D
