I went to KLCC yesterday after eating out at 大同 again. Great place, I must say. I mean the restaurant. Well, my parents spent a while looking through the bookstore, and I managed to pick myself up a near pair of swimming shorts since my other pair just ripped apart after being abused by the sun. They used to be a nice, dark black – now they’re light purple. Swimming stuff is expensive here, too.

Well, I went over to a place with iPods somewhere in KLCC. I don’t know what in hell the place is called, I could care less personally. The prices are plainly ridiculous in comparision to the United States’. I’m planning to write Apple and flood them until they do something about it. For a large company which is making so much money off of a single product, you’d expect more competitive international pricing. Instead, they’re ripping everyone who isn’t in America off. It’s pathetic.

Here are the prices on iPods here:
iPod Mini – RM1199
iPod 4G 20GB – RM1499
iPod 4G 40GB – RM1999

If you divide the price on the iPod 4G 20GB by 3.83, you get the rough conversion from RM to USD. The number comes up to $393.38, kids. That’s a fucking ripoff. That’s approximately $100 USD more than it is in America. Free trade my ass.

The ironic thing is that other companies like Dell can compete internationally without any problems. I use Dell as an example because the prices on computers and parts are relatively good here. In fact, they’re priced on par with America’s prices. They’re right on the dot with the prices at Newegg.com. Amazing, in my opinion. So why is Apple so incompetent? Go ask Steve Jobs.
