I love the geographically challenged. Owning a WD external drive I thought I’d get another one, this time with firewire since my laptop has it available. After tooling about trying to find an Australian vendor, I thought I’d check out WD’s website, at least they should be able to point me to local resellers. The picture pretty much says it all (click the thumbnail).
In cases like this I’m always interested at what point someone just said, “screw it, I know it makes no sense, but I’m not going to argue”. Someone must have thought it a little silly implementing all of the infrastructure to select between a list of “one” countries.
