Jan 15th 2011 7:07AM btw .. Valve wants $89.99 USD for CoD4 through my [Australian] Steam Client .. what a fracking joke
Jan 15th 2011 7:00AM Different developer ~should~ be irrelevant. I see this as very bad news for Mac support on Steam. How many devs/publishers are going to bother putting their product on Steam when App Store is now built into OSX.As for pricing, digital products should be listed in a single currency and let the banks work it out. It's interesting that in the digital domain, antitrust/competition laws are taken seriously but price gouging is not.On the flip-side, maybe this regional pricing crap might provide an opportunity for some startup to create a competitive alternative to Apple, Valve et al .. here's hoping ..
Jan 15th 2011 5:43AM You think that's bad .. well App Store accessed from Australia is charging $60 which is a rip as $50(US) is approx $50.60 (AUS). Regional distribution and pricing for digital products is a bad joke and Apple is the worst offender for this crap.Another side of this story is why isn't the Mac version available on Steam!
Jan 12th 2011 8:20PM Love it. Nice find Erez.btw, the graphics are far from "rudimentary" imo .. it's bang on gorgeous .. you might want to check out the settings menu for some high rez goodness ;)
Jan 12th 2011 9:36AM If YouTube dropped h264 support .. that would be a bomb
Jan 12th 2011 9:30AM Nothing suspicious at all. This will save Google a lot of money and hassle while at the same time get the kudos for promoting a open source product. Just a smart business decision really.

Nov 19th 2010 7:02AM Maybe for speed Queens but I'm pretty happy with Word 2008 opening in less than a second on my iMac.
