Who Won the Fondleslabs?
Just wondering who won the fondle slabs? We were asked to vote for a new name for the Australian Register and 2 iPads were on offer, just wondering who won??

Exactly the point I was going to make. While they can argue shipping and costs of local supply / labour, it doesn't make sense that anything I buy online as a digital download is still being loaded up way above the equivalent US price.
One of the worst for it is Adobe. In the US, the price for the full CS Master Collection is $2599, In Australia it is $3949 EX GST. Thats a whopping $1350 premium before you even add taxes. Now considering there is no discount for selecting the electronic delivery, how on Earth can they justify that!!!
As you pointed out iTunes is no better with the same songs costing more in the Australian Store compared to the AUS, even allowing for currency fluctuations.
In the case with the Surface pricing, it doesn't appear to be as severe as we are used to, and if you take into account currency fluctuations it seems pretty reasonable.
Thanks Stuart. I have been reading The Rego for years now, but I just had to comment on the terrible names on that List.
I was going to go the other way where Aussies usually shorten peoples names too, and maybe suggest just "Reg". But Reg is this shifty guy I know down the pub who, if you give him the nod, can get you a TV "at the right price" and insists thats it is not dodgy and came "off the back of a truck" , and I don't think this reputable publication would want to be associated with or mistaken for the other Reg, so Rego seems perfect.
