I don't agree. There are many ways to pressure somebody.

We now live in an age where we can have what ever we want now! society has 
also learnt that cheap is king! Stuff the quality it looks OK it works 
(hopefully) and I don't have to pay for 300 years.

To me that is pressure in respect of feeding off peoples greed.

As a side issue but related all the same I notice in the news one or two 
supermarket chains are currently under investigation for putting smaller 
outlets out of business.

Isn't that what Dell are doing?

Anyway this thread will just go on and on and I'm sure everyone is bored to 
the back teeth of it I know I am, so this will be my last post to this
