and only 20% hike...i think they should've outright doubled their prices for Apple considering how Apple literally robs consumers of hard earned money and makes its employees "the apple geniuses" dance in the streets like monkeys on launch day...thats just degradation of humans in society!

Instead SS can punish Apple for the dirty game they are playing.

And they should!
