Annoyance: Companies that can’t grasp the fact it’s a GLOBAL economy, and GeoBlock.

Case in point: Olympus Australia, the micro 4/3s accessories. The Accessory Port and Hot Shoe covers are easily lost. You can’t find them on the Olympus Au site at all.

You can, however, find them on the Olympus USA site. BUT you can’t buy them if you’re in Australia, even with a drop mail address because you have to have a US *billing* address.

Also, in Australia, the price is double for these items, and that’s not because of exchange rates. (Accessory Port cover, $7 US, was $15 AUD. With exchange rate, at the time we needed accessory port cover, it was almost at parity).

So, either quit the GeoBlocking, or keep the ^$%%#*%#%# items in stock!
