Do you feel that iPad Apps are Overpriced?

Do you feel that iPad Apps are overpriced? How much difference is iPad Apps to iPhone’s Apps? To be honest, they are almost exactly the same, just that the screen resolution is different, but look at the price difference. It is huge! The average price for iPad in the top 100 paid Apps is $5.80! It is rather expensive! How much more expensive? They are charging 171% more than those in iPhone top 100 paid apps!

So why are iPad Apps so much more expensive? Honestly, I don’t know.. I know that developers have to scale up their apps resolutions, some even redesigned it to make full use of iPad’s Screen. But why are they so much more expensive?

The only reason I can find is iPad is new, and it is still look up as a premiere product, thus you need to pay extra for its App. I’m sorry, but that’s how I feel.

Mac Mini Price Drop internationally, but not in Singapore nor US!

Apple have quietly dropped their Mac Mini‘s price by quite a fair bit, but we have not seen any price drop in US nor Singapore! In UK, price of Mac Mini dropped from £649 to £599 and £929 to £879! There are a similar price drop in other European countries. It has been a while since Apple drop prices of existing Macs even before they refresh the line.

So if you are waiting to buy a Mac Mini in Europe, it is your time now, since you will also get the new iLife 2011 which will come bundle free with any new Mac purchased.

iPhone, Nexus, Droid and Palm Pre comparsion

Billshrink has once again put up their handy chart comparing the total cost of ownership for Google’s Nexus One, Apple’s iPhone, Motorola’s Droid and Palm’s Palm Pre.

Of course, they are based on US’s Price Plan and Google Nexus One has not been release yet where to date. But this chart is very useful for you to compare its features and possibility the price point is somewhere close to your local price.
