PC sales are down because of flooding in another country? That makes no sense. I've heard of JIT shipping, but I can't help thinking that there's enough stock in warehouses worldwide to weather a delay in Thailand. This is just greed. Same as when there's a political problem in Iraq or Venezuela. Soon as something happens, or even is preceived to happen, prices go up at the pumps even though that gas was made from oil purchased weeks ago at a set price. When the Middle East runs out of oil then it'll be Canada's turn to sell them water at $1.22 a litre. We'll be rich !!!
