With the collapse of competition in the DSL market, skyrocketing fuel prices, and persistent energy shortages, the U.S. is looking forward to a long, hot, and expensive summer. Add one more commodity to the high-priced list: CD-R discs. This report at PC Whirled says CD-R media prices could triple by summer. And get this: patent royalties are adding to price pressures. (Say that six times fast. And thanks to Slashdot for the link.)
I even read the other day that RAM prices may go back up.
Carter-esque malaise anyone?
