Why do so many people around the world keep saying AsiaPacific? Asia ia Asia and the Pacific region is it's own region. No one says EuroAfrica. And rightly so as Europe and Africa are two totally different places. The same as Asia and the Pacific, two totally different regions. It's also not right for the Asians too, they have their own rich history and culture and it should be respect as such in their own right, not with the Pacific people's tacked on. On a personal note - If anyone says I come from the AsiaPacific region I tell them, don't be racist. The people of the Pacific region have their own identity and deserve to be recognised as such. Apple says this: Recycling in Asia Pacific and Australia http://www.apple.com/recycling/nationalservices/asiapac.html What the? Why separate Australia from Asia and the Pacific? China etc are Asia and not the Pacific. Australia (and others like New Zealand) is in the Pacific not Asia like Apple claim. Recycling in Asia and the Pacific That's a better term to use.
