>When your currency goes down......prices go up. It's a third world reality I know all too well.

Only for stuff you are importing. But any major financial change will be used as an excuse to bump prices, eh?

Are they suddenly funding a massive new program requiring new hardware? I'm guessing not. More likely acquisitions have been done with debt which needs to be paid off. Like the price hikes Dell had after they went private again. Of course, if you have outsourced most of your business abroad, then you are hostage to currency variations. But the business manager knows that, right? That risk was always accounted for and the decision was made based on short-term profit gain.
