Apple rip off price hikes
So BRexit remains big news though in truth little has happened in real terms since a majority in the UK voted for the United Kingdom to quit the European Union.
The value of the Pound has dived, rallied and dived again each time unelected Prime Minister Theresa May opens her mouth when it comes to BRexit.
Tuesday she came a little cleaner on her BRexit plans and this time the markets liked her words and responded accordingly.
Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn warned Tuesday against turning the UK into a bargain basement country which grabs any deals that come our way no matter what the cost.
But there is likely to be increased costs to some people in the UK either in the short or even long term.
One price hike already announced should be easily put in its place.
Tuesday APPLE has announced a 25% price hike on its apps!
The increases will apply to sales in the UK, India and Turkey.
Simply explained UK app costs will numerically match those of the US. So if it costs $0.99 in the USA it will now cost users 99p in UK.
But of the many things that will increase in price should this APPLE price hike even get a mention?
Now that you know you are about to be ripped off by APPLE simply avoid the company like the plague.
BBC News reports Tuesday:
"Price tiers on the App Store are set internationally on the basis of several factors, including currency exchange rates, business practices, taxes, and the cost of doing business," it said.
So re-think your APPLE product use NOW.
Look for viable alternaives and switch.
Many people in the UK are hooked on their smart phones and APPLE products but boycotting products with over-inflated price structures is easy when it comes to the Internet.
Have APPLE cornered the market?
Maybe for now.
BRexit may cause food and or energy price increases but shopping wisely and with the blinkers off you still might get some good deals.
Be inventive and diversify rather than buying the same old same old no matter what the cost.
It is amazing what a little personal or widespread boycott can do to prices.
Let battle commence.
