sorry i take news literally.It's your assumption, please don't put words into my mouth or tell me what you think I am thinking. I don't read what you're reading, the joys of the english language are such that there are a myriad of words that can be used in different contexts and situations to describe something, it's all about context. However how would you describe all HDD prices going up from existing inventory and from manufacturers that don't have any manufacturing plants in Thailand? extortionate? supply and demand, opportunistic? same with e-tailors with stock they have had since before all of this happened.
It's figurative and one could say you were being literal or pedantic..
you do realize that higher prices = less sales right? HDD sales will suffer because of this. nobody is going to gain anything from really high HDD prices. do you know why the prices go up? because supply is down and demand is the same. honestly, i thought this was all common sense...Jack Doph said:With all due respect to all concerned, the prices are very much extortionate.
When some 25% (or less) of all HDDs are manufactured in Thailand, yet the price of HDDs is doubling or tripling in price, then the only conclusion that can be drawn is what I mentioned before.
