I have have been a mac/apple user for over 20 years, but i am getting concerned by recent changes in how Apple is charging and over-charging customers. recently they are willing to charge for formerly free> What do you think about the changes apple is making? and on pricing? 1- overpricing memory and hard drives 2- charging for an software update and blaming that charge on "gov't accounting procedures" 3- removing an included "free" remote control from laptop packaging and charging $19 at retail for it 4- removing the integrated modem from laptops and forcing consumers to buy one for $49 at this rate Apple would trade off iPhone 3G extra costs by charging more for the device and not including a) headset and b) usb charger, and instead charging $19 for headset and $29 for usb charger and cable remember that Apple also charges a good amount for Macbook's and other models which have Intel integrated graphics chips. Apple is decidely sticking with cheap integrated GPU's which cost only a tiny bit less than real graphics chips. for the money people are paying, a nice basic-mid range graphics chip for even the most basic mac mini higher end model. Game and other developers lament the low end graphics on the majority of consumer systems. What do you think about apple's quest for extreme profits and margins.
