The 2nd-half of this statement I agree with, but for the first half, I ask so what? At least NVIDIA and its vendors are attempting to make things right. You only typically get price protection on an item if you buy it from a brick and mortar store if it comes out at a lower price within 14-30 days. You never get anything like that with purchasing online, save for Amazon. Such are the risks of being an early adopter.
