Was about this close to buying a kindle when it turns out living in Australia means I can't buy the one I want, even though I could get a power adapter. The basic model I wasn't so interested in is also $20 dearer for Australia than America, despite the fact there's no way the exchange rate is that steep anymore.
Okay then. Seems like someone's trying to tell me to stick to my netbook for now. I can do that.
Honestly, this is not the first time I've wondered about Amazon's lack of regard or outright hatred for the Australian market. There's a reason I started buying my books at the book depository instead.
