Because Amazon is trying to f* me over.1. The Kindle sells for 139 EUR in Germany. But USD 139 are ~ 98 EUR according to today’s exchange rate.
Taxes? WTF? 2. They’ve sent me this newsletter today where they’re offering the Kindle for USD 114. But when I open the “Learn more” link, the page says USD 139. And there’s no visible link to this “special” offer (obviously in combination with other services). Seriously, it’s better to have a tablet without Flash and with a nasty iTunes bloatware then this Amazon shit. Fuck you, Amazon!
