That may seem fair in your region of the world, but it is ludicrously over-priced elsewhere.
Over priced compared to what? The pirated copies? Letting people who infringe copyright dictate price point is not a good idea.
In the UK a new release DVD can be anywhere between £10 and £15; a trip to the cinema for 4 people can be upward of £35. I'd say the price point for a DVD that you can keep, share, re-sell etc, is about right. Sure it would be nice if it was cheaper.
At the end of the day these companies have costs, risks, and an obligation to make huge profits. Do other manufacturers listen when you tell them to reduce prices and make less profit?
First Pandora's Box opened!
Or rather, the second?
Data from the IARC study showed that overall, mobile telephone users in fact had a lower risk of brain cancer than people who had never used one, but the 21 scientists who conducted the study said this finding suggested problems with the method, or inaccurate information from those who took part.
Sounds like it was a bit of a waste of time really...
I just don't understand why no one trusts Google when they have the cleanest track record out there
I think it is down to how many companies have burned their users in the past. Last.fm, Facebook etc. were all 'trusted' by users until their moral compasses went haywire. I think distrusting content providers* is healthy, if only from a security and privacy perspective.
*Yes I realise Google searches don't technically provide content
