I have actually experienced it 1st hand. A bicycle at Giant used to retail at $119. Then Giant had an expo at the Singapore expo. I 1st went and checked the price of the bicycle at the main Giant shop, it was jacked up to $139, just for the expo period! and at the expo they were selling it now for the original retail price of $119.

This is how sales work in Singapore.

Same thing for when stores put on displays in the common areas of the malls they reside in, moving out old stock, making it look like a sale, sometimes it is, sometimes it isn't, but it gets people looking at things every time.

remember to pull out the hard drive when you are done and don't leak the source code...
if you suspect the source code leaked, try using an Anti Virus
Thanks for the advice :) It was like trying to put a 1/4 " phono plug on an old headphone into a 1/8" walkman socket.
