Apple announced today the long awaited Snow Leopard or Mac OS X.6 (Mac OS 10.6). The new operating system, which is more Mac OS 10.5 R2, will be available August 28th, for the interesting price of $29. If you live in the US.
If you live in the UK or in Continental Europe, screw you! As known from the great conversion rate has used for the Apple TV, the Jobsian devotes like to apply their own conversion rates and overcharge us Europeans. $229 converts to Â£195, today’s market converts to less than Â£140.
No exceptions are made for Snow Leopard:
- $29 converts to Â£25: today’s market value is less than Â£18. At today’s rate Â£25 is worth more than $41
- $29 converts to â‚¬29: today’s market value is less than â‚¬21. At today’s rate â‚¬29 is worth more than $41
As an Apple user with every new release I feel ripped off once more.
