LCD price fixing scandal!

A trio of companies, namely Sharp, LG and Chunghwa have been spanked for pricing fixing LCD prices. Lots of links at Tech Meme. The fine is over half a billion dollars for their price-fixing sins.

Imagine how much cheaper laptops would have been without the price fixing. Not that we are complaining that laptop prices are too high these days, especially with the netbooks fighting off the entry-level 15.4" widescreens in the $500 price-range.

Related, the laptop vs netbook opinion we posted a couple of days ago.
