iPod Classic UK Price
Please see email below from Steve Jobs, rather arrogant answer!
The british pound has crashed. Stuff gets more expensive when that happens.

I am really pleased with the new release of iPods that you introduced yesterday, however, i am concerned about the prices that Apple UK are offering.
In your presentation you advised that the new iPod classic would remain at the same price of $249 in the States but the UK price has risen from £159.99 to £179.99.
Can you please advise on this situation?
He falsely advertised the classic would remain the same price as there is an increase in the UK. $249 works out at £142 with today's current exchange rate so i feel we are being ripped off here in the UK.

So the USD hasn't crashed ? Causing the the UKP to crash ? and the rest of the world ? I'm a little tired of these price differences between continents i suppose its only twenty nicker but still its a serious percentage. Just add the shipping steveo it'll be more transparent. We already have a reduced volume level on European ipods so surely we should pay incrementally less ?

As the recipient of an email response from Steve Jobs myself a while ago, I can believe that he would actually write that.
In any case, he has a point. The £ is weaker against the $ than it was last year, but not by that much.
