I've got a 512 MB mp3 player from a unknown company, it's really weird, the design of my player has been ripped off so many times that when i walk around at school everyone has the same looking thing like me but from another brand :S

QUOTEI don't know why you're tired, discussion like this is always interesting.
It's interesting but I'm out of sensible words. I just don't want to blurt out incomplete ideas and fill lines with meaningless words. What I have written already is too general to be taken seriously; I don't want to mutilate it further by writing nonsense. I need time to think and write more and I don't have the patience to think about this topic anymore which is why I'm stopping.
QUOTEMatt mullen of wordpress and shuttleworth of canonical admitted in many interviews that they wanted to build business by taking advantage of open source and community model. It's just that because of success of these project we neglect their intention. Why any businessman like shuttleworth will give something for free espcially when he's from south africa ?
Well at least they believe in the success of open-source. But yeah it's hard to conceal their true intentions.
QUOTEApple store in mumbai is not in good condition, with just 2 employees in apple store. Besides you can see their shop not in list in apple site. Apple didn't even listed it's store in pune as well. Chroma shops don't sell AIR and Macbook
One can't expect the common man to buy Apple's products and the people who can afford to buy them look on the internet first. If they don't put full info on their sites very few people will find their way to these stores.
QUOTEnah, most likely after conversion it goes to 45 cents to 70 cents. But depending on payment methods used price will increase/decrease. And indian albums in digital format are available under 200 ?
I haven't examined in detail but sites like t-series are offering downloads now at the same rate as CDs.
QUOTEDuh, have you ever used amazon's payment gateway solution ? if yes then i wonder how you moved to india.amazon.com for purchasing. Region for amazon for based on continents and UK/China/US are their regions and sites are made like that. If you sign up to affiliate program of amazon then you'll get this difference and will come to know that how amazon charges to indians
I don't use Amazon for online shopping. I searched for "Amazon India" in google and got india.amazon.com - that's where the confusion started!
QUOTEAnd plant vs zombies don't appeal to people ? *_* it's one of the highest sold game on the internet
last year. Lol, you're talking about games as per your preference tongue.gif
First off, the games I talked about are not the best-sellers today. They are unknown names to me because I can't afford to buy today's latest games. Plants vs Zombies was unknown too until you mentioned it
QUOTEAnd just cause it's priced 2500 are you going to torrent it or steal it ? ahem, are you defending stealing under the excuse of economy and emotion of people ?
Of course not. I don't steal through torrents or any other source. In fact I recently bought those two games I mentioned - God of War and Need for Speed - for the PS2 which together cost me Rs.1200. I could have got an entire month's fuel supply with that but it was worth it.
The other stuff you said about generalising things - well that's too general so I'll stop here
QUOTElol, fair enough, we can cut it here if you wish.
you can continue if you like - I'll stick to short-line replies for now. Hopefully another member will join the discussion soon
