Pip Marlow Confirms: Microsoft Are Bastards

OK, so it has been quite a while since I blogged - I should change that.  I've been spending more time updating Facebook instead and that has lead to a dearth of updates in here.  So here's the first in a while.

Pip Marlow has confirmed that Microsoft has been lying to their Partners (sic) in Australia for years when they have been telling us that their over-inflated pricing was out of their hands as it was set by Microsoft US: During a March IT price inquiry hearing, Microsoft Australia managing director Pip Marlow admitted the local arm of the global software giant set Australian prices based on what the market could bear.
The revelation earned Marlow and the company the wrath of the parliamentary committee for 'charging what it could get away with'.

You lying, cheating bastards - and that includes you, too Pip.
