Hence, you’re going to get full usage of all its ports and operations without the need to get rid of the case out of your phone. Regardless of the brilliance with the artwork and constructive public reception, the exhibit encountered criticism in Ny, in which its presence in Central Park was considered a cynical use of public room for a business interest. Adidas Skateboarding are the shoes that are specifically made for skateboarding. IPads are for consuming and interacting with a wide amount of content. IRG focuses on event driven and special situations including Mergers and Acquisitions, Recapitalizations and Restructurings, Management Buyouts, Late Stage Private Equity Capital Raisings, and Asia Market Entry Strategies. A humidor adds humidity to the cigars’ environment. The ultimate fashion trend image, Paris Hilton’s design is mostly flawless, although there have actually been several occasions where she has actually been apprehended by the style police for committing fashion trend artificial pas of the greatest order.

I subscribed to the above-mentioned Witopia VPN service and switched my location to New Delhi. I’m still getting offered pretty much the same rates. What am I doing wrong? Thanks for your help.

The India pricing situation is another story.

It’s the same when you want to buy anything from the UK, whether it be clothing, books, liquor, etc., one just to pays more here in the US for UK-made items. Perhaps it’s “branding”.

On my recent trips to India (among other countries) I have stocked up on books and other (identical) things that would otherwise ridiculously and unnecessarily expensive if purchased in the US.

With this pricing inelasticity and shortsightedness the Brits don’t think they are missing a trick, but in the long term they’re squandering more lucrative opportunities. Typical.

If you have the membership, you are able to access FT content from the previous day. I am writing this comment 10/11/2012 and I am able to read 10/10/2012 FT articles. I haven’t figured out if this service includes the LEX column but I could also go to my local library and check out the print version, which is always current.

Its somewhat of a hassle but check your local library for subscriptions (NYT, WSJ, WasPost, are all current).

Then I’m offered a “special promotion” to get me back — close to my original price at about $4.00 cheaper. Financially, this should have lured me back. But I was actually offended to be part of a program in which different people were paying different prices. Some of us out there find the entire premise offensive — in part because we always wonder whether someone else is being charged even less.

And do let us know the result.

That’s not all bad news. II won’t have to read the reader comments any longer.

And I speak as someone who is very fond of the FT and subscriber for many years but at those prices I simply cannot justify it any longer.

I do have one point to quibble with Felix’s original point though, for me, I see FT’s further devolution into a newsLETTER rather than newsPAPER if/when it is acquired by someone with deeper pockets. I just don’t see subscription prices ever going lower.
