"This title is not available for customers from your location in:Europe"This makes me very sad when it happens.

At least you can still set a bookmark in the web browser!

exactly what I wanted to say... Poor Europeans we always get this kind of treatment. I just want to order a Kindle from Amazon for my own Christmas present, but I will miss many things from it available for americans.

I know, I know, you're right, being able to read the site the way I read it is good enough. It works fine.It's just... and this isn't something that it's fair to lay at the feet of WoW Insider, but this happens a lot, a hell of a lot. I adore the kindle app, I love it to bits, and yet it would be considerably more useful if I were able to buy more of the stuff that's out there.The regional restrictions end up breaking the good stuff of recommendations, be it a post on WoW Insider, or Amazon's own recommendations system. The field of goodies that you see is not the same field of goodies that I get.I've no doubt that the size of the market they are serving is good enough for Amazon, and I'm sure that you guys will work with whatever you can get. I'd do the same. So the only lever I have is to point out that what you're encouraging your users to look at, it can't be reached by some of your users - in the hope that maybe you can bring that news upward, and point out that every time you promote this stuff, as long as it's restricted, it makes some of your users sad.
