Comment: Consumer financial sense??? (Score 1) 153

So instead of paying $1,165 for something you can touch and have access to whenever you want (and possibly resell) Oxford thinks consumers would rather pay $8,850 ($295/year * 30 years (rough average time between releases)) and get something that they cannot access whenever they want (servers go down, power outages, etc.) instead? Someone help me out here...I can't see the rational here. Maybe Oxford will make it available for download on iTunes :)

One can't proceed from the informal to the formal by formal means.
