Right, and of course it's prudent not to leap to any conclusions when not all the facts are known. I'm not sharpening my pitchfork and calling for a boycott here. I just don't consider it particularly helpful to come up with some outlandish and completely incorrect theoretical scenario (urgently couriering a wildly expensive stick of the wrong type of memory from Hamilton? Really?) and then declare the case closed.
And its not like you would personally do this......
allio: I don't know why people are defending PB so vehemently here.
No, it's not illegal, and yes, they have every right to quote whatever they want. But I don't consider it particularly ethical behaviour.
Even if there was some kind of justification for the crazy price, like they were out of stock of all the cheapy 2GB sticks and only had expensive ones left, I would hope they would have explained this to him and suggested that he'd save a lot of money if he waited a few days for them to get more stock in (or even, gasp, went to a competitor). To just blithely quote that amount with a straight face is reprehensible.
Lets look at that last statement "To just blithely quote that amount with a straight face is reprehensible."
Youve used very strong language considering you dont want to leap to conclusions without the facts.
Cmon, none of us were there!! Read the whole thread. One person (who wasnt there) reckons his dad was given a raw deal in his opinion......end of story
