Are you paying higher for your PC..???



Samsung electronics is about to pay 300 million USD for conspiring along with its fellow DRAM
manufacturers.

In a US district court Samsung electronics has admitted for fixing the price of the DRAM which
priced at 10USD more than the usual price.

Just like Match Fixing... Shall we call this CHIP Price fixing..or Cheap price fixing..???!!!!!

Thanks to Micheal Dell who first raised this issue in a financial conference about the price
fixing issue of the DRAM maunfacturing companies..


Right now ...there are four major DRAM manufacturers who contribute a major share
of the DRAM market....

Samsung (South Korea) - 30.7 %
Hynix (South Korea ) - 16.5 %
Micron (U.S) - 14.7%
Infineon ( Germany) - 13.6%

All the other DRAM manufacturers Hynix, Micron and Infineon have also pleaded guilty in
front of their respective country courts for their conspiracy...

It all shows to prove the tamil proverb : "If you are buying a cow, make sure that the price of the tail is included." ..and those who are searching for the tamil equivalent of this...here you go...

"Maataa kati vaanguraven, thalaium vaalum paarthu vaaganum".
