Damn you commies
Apple has ever right to ask for a discount.
It didn't get to be a greed guts by giving money away.
Eventually it won't be able to increase it's profits and at that time stockholders will desert it in droves.

How do you trust your chosen VPN?
I've yet to see any VPN provider who has a security certificate issued by a reputable company.
They say they don't keep logs. But at least one was caught with logs recently.
A reputable security company making surprised visits would go a long way towards trust...
Reminded me of a battle I had when I worked at Maplin. Next door was PC World. Customer came to me to get a cable for their desktop PC as instructed by the PCWorld person.
I told the customer that such a cable didn't exist. So back to PCWorld he went for further instructions.
He came back with a piece of paper and once more I said, such a cable didn't exist.
This exchange went on about 6 times. Until I feeling pity for him went with him into PCWorld and looked at his PC myself.
I saw immediately that PCWorld technician was inventing cables. You can't get a 6 pin graphics card power cable to ATX 24 pin main board adapter. I of course sold the customer the correct PSU cable....
Made a change from telling the customer to refund their £90 HDMI cable from PCWorld and buy a £6 from us instead.
Nice to see someone knocking the shine off SpaceX and NASA.
The Americans don't care that the overall cost of a SpaceX launch is more expensive.
They just love wallowing in patriotic slime.
I've never seen a country so up its Ass with false Pride. Let's remember it's citizens enjoy killing each other over the slightest thing.
I remember my first introduction to the radio series.
A certain Mouse Trainer was selling off plastic animation sheets from the book on the TV series. Got to see outtakes in Blackpool that were deleted forever a few months later. I'd never heard of the series at that point and so missed the opportunity to get Merch.
First episode later that week for me was the one where they're inside that marble cup. I was hooked.
Met Douglas himself a few months later doing book signing in Edinburgh. Only 3 of us there, so we got to ask lots of crazy questions. Later on, I was message boarding him on a London BBS. Sweet.
Funny how no one minds when you buy an item from China and it costs you £1 to post it to you.
I fear most of our items are now supplied by China and when they stop supplying them, we'll get a serious wake up call as we realise we've no home market.
We need to create a new cheap production market. How about Africa?
I did the MENSA test and around 145. Wasn't interested in joining. But I was called Doc at Primary School and was bullied at School for being naive and trusting.
This went along at Work until I finally had to wise up and stop speaking.
Discovered I was high Autistic (Aspergers).
I was called Wizkid and didn't find that offensive at all. Then came along American Culture in the form of TV Shows and discovered that they disliked intelligent kids and called them Nerds and Geeks. These were derogatory terms in the 70/80s. Just didn't know what they meant!
The days when the Internet came along, I found myself in demand by the general public around me. So, I guess I ended up in the Black.
Had an Electrican rewire the 19V end of a laptop power cable,only to find it still wasn't working.
On inspection I discovered he'd swapped the polarity over.
"Does polarity matter?" asked the innocent looking man.
I replied, "don't rewire anyone's house until you understand why it's a bad thing..."
