    For the WiFi only model, Sony have set the U.S price at $249.99 and the Eurozone price at €249.99. Using todays exchange rate, that means Eurozone customers will pay 32% more than US customers.
    Add on tax, duty, shipping costs and it is reduce significantly although I cba to work out percentages :lol: also US prices does not include taxes (fed, state and local) while Eurozone does....

    Are we going around in circles

    Actually, with the exception of sales tax (which not all states have), all other costs are included in the sale price, just like they are here. Obviously differing tax rates and transport costs make it harder for a "direct conversion price", but I very much doubt that they amount to an additional 32% on top of costs in the US.

    It's not that you explained it enough but that your explanation is, if I recall correctly, somewhat... well flawed. The British didn't let the Jewish have their own country, the Jewish declared independence of Britain. It's not like we just said "screw you Arabs, we are in favour with the Jews now".

    How flawed? I know it has bias but I think I got it covered

    If it truely is flawed to hell and not some pro-Palestine, anti-Israel thing then I'll amend in the morning when I am more alert

    Edit: "The British didn't let the Jewish have their own country, the Jewish declared independence of Britain. It's not like we just said "screw you Arabs, we are in favour with the Jews now"."
    From my understanding talking to people that served in Israel, Britain did more or less allow them to create a country, there wasn't a proper effort to prevent it or come up with a solution.

    Obviously there was tension/antagonism on all sides, but surely Israel 'started' the Six Day War?

    No he shouldn't. He is entitled to his opinion as much as anyone else is.

    My one and only convention was a network security convention I went to with cisco. Not as 'glamorous' or 'fun' as E3

    No he shouldn't. He is entitled to his opinion as much as anyone else is.
    Certainly he is entitled to his personal views, as we all are.

    The key distinction, however, is that his statements were not befitting his role. His role is ecumenical and he shouldn't, in his position, be writing criticisms of the democratic government in such a public manner.

    It would be a different situation if his article were based on a religious view, but it isn't, it is an entirely secular view, which he shouldn't really be doing as the de jure leader of the Anglian church's day to day matters.
