[Q] Any plans for B&N nook books international sales?
Ok, so I guess this question belongs more on the B&N forums but I also want to rant a little bit.
I bought my Nook Color mostly to hack it like everybody else on this forum. I am pretty happy with the results. However, I also took a liking to the B&N launcher and the whole ebook deal. So I would say I am using the Nook 50% to read ebooks/newspapers/magazines and the other 50% to do anything else.
Out of respect to B&N for giving us this fabulous toy at an affordable price I decided to buy my reading material from B&N and not amazon, plus newspapers and magazine REALLY SUCK at amazon (they are mostly abbreviated versions at full price).
My rant is that B&N is not moving fast enough at allowing international sales. I mean if amazon can do it I am pretty sure they can too. I want to give my money to them but they won't accept international customers. C'mon!!!!
So my Nook Color now sports a big amazon kindle icon on its B&N Home launcher and I now buying all my books without a hitch from amazon.
Does any one know if B&N is working towards allowing international sales?
Its ironic, in a world where you can pirate anything with a click of a button corporations and lawyers still make it difficult for us honest international buyers to buy stuff. If I have to pay more because I'm not in the US at least give us an option (I can buy the physical NY times in my country for $3 but at least the option is there).
On the same note I can understand why I cant buy music and movies because of copyrights but I cant understand why Doodlejump is not available for my country. I cant give the 2 bucks to the developer but then I can google the apk and get it for free. Who is really losing with all these protection schemes???
