I really don't know why you are picking on Raspi distribution like this
I'm not - things like this annoy me all the time. I don't like the thought of people adding to the base price by slight of hand, especially as the Foundation is a charity.
- almost EVERY SINGLE DISTRIBUTOR OF EVER SINGLE PRODUCT does something similar. It just THE WAY IT IS...
Not everyone, and that doesn't make it right.
Now if someone is overcharging for P&P for ther Raspi, the distributors are told and usually do something about it.
Good to see you're on top of it.
But market forces should mean those that over charge don't sell as many.
In theory, but if sneaky tactics weren't partly successful they wouldn't try it on in the first place. They won't get my custom. I get the buyer beware freedom of choice argument but its hard to choose and beware when things are confusing.
Farnell's prices appear to depend on which one of their many sites you use, which is a bit crap.
Thats probably whats got my hackles up - i expect its probably just mis-coordination.
Like I said its well worth the money anyway, its no big deal.
