    'Product sabotage' helps consumers

    Why would a company deliberately damage its best product?

    Many hi-tech companies do that, and even my favourite local restaurant does.

    It doesn't sound like a winning formula, but it's at the heart of the way many companies do business.

    K so this isn't really funny, I put it in the wrong forum but I think it is interesting to note (if you live in the right starbucks area you might want to ask for the small...for health reasons if not money)

    but I wondered just how much our willingness to pay effects the price...since it is supply and demand, if we stop using/buy/consuming products at rediculously high prices..maybe they would come down..

    this prolly wont work well for things we really need (you gotta eat) but I bet if the consuption of say movie tickets that cost more than the dinner out went down the price would at least stop rising..
