Sir: The apparent huge price differentials between cars sold in the UK and cars sold elsewhere are far short of amazing to anybody who buys computing products.

Software priced at $99 in the US always seems to turn up over here at pounds 99.

The pricing of many consumer electronic products of Far Eastern origin also seems to lean towards dollar/pound parity.
