Thanks for the iPhone, Mr. Jobs. There is a new way to protest the iPhone. I don’t have to sign petitions anymore. I can now take my $500 elsewhere, for a slightly more open experience. I didn’t ask for much, but I don’t have to wait on your whim any longer (no offense meant to you personally, Mr Jobs).
I’ve lived in India for 27 of the 29 years of my life (moved to Canada in 2007) For almost every year for the last 15 years (that’s how long I’ve been a gadget/tech fanatic), I have lamented the availability or lack thereof of any newly released shiny thingies. Amazon has finally figured out that people outside the US, read books too. Imagine my delight when I heard that there a new version of the Kindle (The global wireless edition – no less) (Disclosure: affiliate link).
Here’s what I get when I checked to see if it available in India
Isn’t that amazing!! The Kindle is finally available in India!! Yay!
And then, I see this
GAAAAAAA!!! Why? Why? Why?!!!!!
If you are in the UK or India, you can still buy the Kindle, using the link below.
