Amazon and Apple have an illegal price-fixing conspiracy

[SPOILER ALERT!] The creatures outside looked from pig to man, and from man to pig, and from pig to man again; but already it was impossible to say which was which.

An old-timey cash register displaying $999.99. Its makers’ mark has been replaced with Apple’s ‘Think Different’ wordmark; one of the decorative arrows has been replaced with Amazon’s arrow-tipped ‘Smile’ logo. A modified version of Monopoly’s Rich Uncle Pennybags is popping out of the cash drawer. He wields a scythe and his face is a skull-mask. Perched atop a protrusion on the register is a trustbuster era editorial cartoon image of Roosevelt, swinging his ‘big stick.’ Image: Andrés Moreira
