That would add cost. You either eat that cost or pass it on to the consumer. As price is the number one criteria for the mass market I am sure vendors are shy about raising prices and equally shy about eating into meager profitsEek. :( Hate to rehash the responsibility debate...but shouldn't the manufacturers/whatever slap the latest service packs on their products that they're selling?
You know its not that simple.... Changing a light bulb does not have the same potentially unforeseen and unintended consequences of installing 56MB of new code. It WILL break some things.If GM puts out a recall on their vehicles for a GE lamp.
Vendor A laptop price = $x
Vendor B laptop price = $x+ $20
A-Laptop == B-Laptop
Given the choice between the two where one has all the service packs installed and the other for $20 less does not.... Sad to say most will take the one for $20 less as the other is "ripping me off!" Most consumers dont have a hope in hell sometimes of understanding value in the tech world and instead fixate totally on price.
