Look – MAPS for only $299!!!

Filed under: Uncategorized — solutionsthroughit @ 15:41

Found this on Harry’s newsletter.  I’m ecstatic!  Us Aussies have only been ripped off on this, well since forever!  Lets follow the links for a new subscription.  Hmm, USD pricing.  Still, that means that MAPS can be obtained for about $426AUD.


Hang about – UK gets it for even less!  $199 GBP is only $412 AUD.


Hang about – can someone explain just what this means?  I’ve just gotten the US and UK pricing!  This is taken from the Australian FAQ.

UK and US pricing equals roughly $430 AUD(say $450 AUD for rounding).  Why the $#%# are Aussies being bilked $699?  I didn’t realise it was so expensive to ship to Australia!

This has been done so many times before, I really don’t know why I’m bothering – Microsoft will continue to “charge what the market will bear”.  Yes, for both the end customers and the tech’s that support, sell and grow Microsoft’s business.
