Away from the Global market and its stress, I found this article, which an absurd what is happining to the Middle-east market!
I wish that the Mother company could do a surge step and open in that area of Arab peninsula. For decades consumer over there been reluctant by either subsidiary company or being owned be an agent who distribute the goods for the company. As much oil over there as much consumer there and main companies losing those money for not opening a main office that people could visit or complain to if they have any problems they could experience.
However, its not only apple products! even though with car market as well Toyota for example their cars is more likely to be expensive than any other countries plus less features in the car!
Moreover, Apple "at the same time as it’s launched in the U.S., Australia, Canada, China, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Japan, Puerto Rico, Singapore and the U.K. on Friday". Do you know how much is the price for an IPhone 5s Gold 16GB in this market? they sell this device for roughly $1635!! whereas in other countries with in $649!! is not that so ridicules to pay %1.55 extra to get the lowest GB.
In the end, I am a fan for apple and I do like their products. But I will use my mind and never be a part of such fraud for example I will use online orders and wait for 2 weeks rather than ending up paying more than it requires. This was to big companies that does not consider to open their main office in that area of the earth.
