it is fair that Apple (an all others) have a base price similar in all the countries world wide, and on top comes the country taxes. what is not fair is that for a iPhone in US i payed 650Euros and in my country Apple sell it for 730Euros also before taxes. that is why exists and will be always propagate the black markets, with ios apps are different because you dont have a choice, you can buy only in the country you have your credit card registred, with osx apps we still have mostly the developer web site that usualy has their apps available for sale.

This is a very common business price changes everywhere and every company. Why are they making a big deal? It's base on actually dollar amount.

that is true if you are paying taxes for app sales in that country! plus many app were already more expensive, eg in many cases apps costing $0.99 would cost ~€0.99

Absolutely, it's a very common practice with every company who knows how to properly count their books. With each changes of the dollar and taxes, you will changes in prices. The sad part is that it's cause mostly by economic changes.
