The authors continue, “Vandalism can occur anywhere once communal barriers—the sense of mutual regard and the obligations of civility—are lowered by actions that seem to signal that ‘no one cares.’” To test this theory, Philip...   [tags: Psychology]

By allowing more firms to resell Vista, Microsoft will set itself up for higher short term profits, but less long term profits, due to firms competing with each other, lowering the price they are selling the software for.
