I would think that out of all active MR posters MAYBE 1% are from any of those 42 countries.
1. I think you are wrong about the 1% ...Dont have any data to backup of how many, but people outside of the US learn foreign languages and most learn english and the US news sites are big resource of info even for people not living in the US. (I know tons of people outside the US that read macrumors)
2. Even people in the US should care about the success of an American company and how it is spreading around the world making money
3. Can't people just be happy for others to enjoy what they already enjoyed for years? Don't be too occupied with your own problems. I am always happy to hear about the success of a company, even if it does not effect me directly.
