In short, Apple, Adobe and Microsoft have all been called before a govt inquiry into apparent price gouging of Australian users.

As the article says: 'Choice found that for one Microsoft software development product you could fly to Los Angeles return to buy the software and still save thousands of dollars.'

I presume that is a reference to the outrageous pricing of Visual Studio in Australia.

I'm not expecting much, but nevertheless, hope something comes of it.
