...with regard to the Gilette story...

Too right! This guy has actually got even more worked up about Gilette because, not content with charging too much for their products, they've now started embedding RFID chips in those spare blades which trigger photos to be taken of you whenever you pick the things off the shelves.

Presumably this is some attempt to limit shoplifting, and I think it's only at trial stage. Nevertheless, I think it kind of proves that spare razer blades are too expensive when the price doesn't change that much after the addition of RFID chips into the packaging, hmmm?
