I decided to check on DirectX 7 on the Microsoft download site. Hmm - still available for download, all 128 megs of it.
Hey! I can buy it for $8.95 or $12.50 airmailed to me! Cool - I click on the link to order it and what do I find? They want $9.95 and $13.50 to airmail.
Wait a second! I emailed them asking why the extra buck? The response a day after - We don't see the price error - where were you looking?
Well, let me get the URL for you... Wait a second.... Microsoft just raised the price on their site - $9.95 and $13.50... Well sir, you must have been wrong then.
It's the old 'We're never wrong' deal
Now, has anybody ordered the CD for the 8.95 or 12.50 that it used to be or remember that price being listed?
It might only be a buck, but think that if 100,000 people order it, that's a lot of extra cash!
