Hello from Russia. I just got this email from Amazon and i would like to share my feelings. The email: Dear Valery Latyshev, I see that you attempted to purchase "Wired for War" while in a different country than United States listed on your Amazon account. Certain Kindle titles are not available everywhere. We are reaching out to you to ensure the best possible service for your account. lalalalalalala......... Best regards, Account Specialist A day before that, i downloaded Kindle to my iPad and to my honest surprise found out that the book selection was very very poor. While trying hard to find some books i wanted to read, i noticed that in "also bought by customers" there were the books i was looking for. Ah... Now it all came together. Im in EUROPE, screw you, you only get access to a couple of books there Whats the bloody logic/evil bureaucracy machine behind that? Without thinking for too long, i went to "my addresses", googled up "apple headquarters address" and pasted it there. Then i bought all the books i wanted. And on the next day i get that email and i can no longer buy using US region.... Thanks for best effing possible service. Then there is this AppStore thingy. Which is regional as well. So that means im locked into RUSSIAN version ONLY. And that means all the top ratings are Russian and all the comments are Russian... AND not all applications are available How about that iPage, iWork or whatever its called? Well, i want that and i want to read peoples opinions from all over the world and i want to see which apps people use all over the world and i dont want to be locked into 0.01% user group half of which doesnt even speak English properly!!! Well, screw you, sir! And then there is this internet regionalisation. Where stuff like that i encounter more and more. And i have to employ elaborate tricks to fool the system, like using US-based proxy servers. Recent thoughts from TED (Internet has 'not become the great leveller, Zuckerman) about narrowing our world perspective, instead of broadening it, i think are more appropriate then ever. Whats up? Internet. Its supposed to be open and global. But its becoming less of each. I feel like a mouse in a room with closing walls.
