    @ronya did u ever see the result of the australian inquiry into the ridiculous price hikes for software in australia
    Just getting three of the tech industry's heavyweights to the parliamentary inquiry was a feat in itself. Adobe, Apple and Microsoft were all invited to attend the inquiry's earlier public hearings voluntarily. In the end it took a summons to compel the companies to appear. Each had a different reason to explain the pricing disparities.

    Adobe said it offered a specialised "bespoke" experience for Australian customers.

    Apple blamed local copyright holders for higher prices on its local iTunes store.

    Microsoft said its prices were set and customers could vote with their wallets.

    "Particularly when it comes to digitally delivered content, the committee concluded that many IT products are more expensive in Australia because of regional pricing strategies implemented by major vendors and copyright holders," said the report by committee chair and Labor MP for Wakefield, Nick Champion.

    "While the committee acknowledges that in some cases, geo-blocking is a necessary business practice, it also notes that many IT vendors appear to use geo-blocking as a means to raise prices by restricting consumers' ability to access the global marketplace," the report said.

    "The committee considers this form of geo-blocking to be a significant constraint on consumer choice.

    The report advised that the Australian government amend the Copyright Act's anti-circumvention provisions to "clarify and secure consumers' rights to circumvent technological protection measures that control geographic market segmentation".

    theyre straight up like fk these guys buy it somewhere else and we should change our copyright act to support this \0/

    i wonder why they don't just swing the antitrust hammer at them

    u haven't had good french cuisine then

    it runs a pretty broad range from rustic to super-refined and pays more attention to preparation and detail then probably any other cuisine out there.

    Providing it's a good surge protector, yes. When you have power back though I would check your electronics to be on the safe side.

    kinda disappointed in Marvel Puzzle Quest

    They have a tab devoted to the "prologue" episode, but completing all of the missions doesn't create an "episode 1" tab or whatnot

    would have liked them to go through and tweak the loot tables, then let people replay each episode after the community event aspect is over.

    I don't exactly care for the story (there's a story?), but more content is usually better.
