Ok so first things first I am a die hard capitalist and I have been around business long enough to know the most important aspect of business is profit.
Even I get offended by the arrogance of some retailers.
I can justify paying what is it now $4.50 for a cup of coffee? and i can justify $6 for a chocolate bar in a hotel room fridge. I can even justify the difference in fare prices for the same seat on a trip to AKL form WLG Last time i checked it was something like from $49 to $269.
Yep I fully understand how they arrive at those amounts.
What I don't get is how a USB A - USB Micro-B 2.0 2m lead can sell for $4.59 at Cablemax ($2.86 if you want to risk it with one of the real cheap sellers) against $19.98 at DSE or thats not the worse Noel Leemings go on take a guess? no? how about $28.99! Harvey Normans a little better only $24.
Its not the likes of you and I who are tech savvy, I really feel sorry for the Civilian who gets exploited . Or maybe its just me ?
