Apple Slashes Australian App Store Prices To Match US 81

An anonymous reader writes "It's been a long time coming, but Apple has finally readjusted the price of apps in Australia to match pricing in the U.S. While they remain more expensive than in the U.S., premium apps have still received a price-cut, with $8.99, $9.99 and $11.99 apps dropping to $8.49, $9.49 and $10.49, respectively. Movies and music, meanwhile, remain unchanged. In recent months, Apple has come under fire from consumer watchdogs, angry customers and even the Australian Government for its local price markups."

    No.

    We Australian's are so dumb that we pay whatever is on the price tag. Our dollar is almost 10% higher than the American dollar yet we still pay more than 60% higher for most goods. That is, the same goods that Americans get that come from China. Shit, it is even cheaper per square metre to rent space on a container ship to move goods to Australia than America.

    Companies and businesses charge that simply because they can. I think that people here are starting to cotton on though. Hence Australia will finally fall into the recession that the rest of the world has been experiencing.
