The price factor

Adrian Kingsley-Hughes: This morning I read two fine articles here on ZDNet that looked at price. Jason Perlow touched on price in his "Der Frankenputer" piece, and Andrew Nusca took the subject of price head on in his piece "Culture of cheap: How discount computers cost the consumer". But what effect does price have on a consumer?

How long can Apple dodge the antitrust bullet?

Adrian Kingsley-Hughes: If you ask me, Apple is getting dangerously close to putting itself in the line of fire from an antitrust bullet. And when it comes, it'll have nothing to do with the iPod or Mac OS, but instead it's the way Apple manages the App Store.

A year on, Sony finally owns up to using dodgy NVIDIA GPUs

Adrian Kingsley-Hughes: Last summer it emerged that a large number of NVIDIA GPUs were failing due to thermal issues. Most OEMs, after a littler persuasion, handled the issue in a civil and dignified manner. However it's taken Sony over a year to admit that some of its notebooks were affected.
