Fair price for increased space
Apple -- and, yes, other equipment makers as well -- charging a $100 or more for every jump from 16gb to 32gb to 64gb is nothing short of highway robbery. This isn't the 1980's; the technology charges doesn't justify the increased price. Motorola making it a nominal $20 more for more space is a consumer friendly decision though...
Well, if Motorola is making good decisions, maybe it is the 1980's again...
I think I have a problem.
