Multimedia, AV "Yesterday, Logitech hosted an Analyst and Investor Day and during his remarks, CEO Guerrino De Luca pulled absolutely no punches in describing the 'mistakes' the company made with its Logitech Revue Google TV set top box. Calling the company's Christmas 2010 launch 'a mistake of implementation of a gigantic nature', De Luca told investors that the company had 'brought closure to the Logitech Revue saga' by making plans to let inventory run out this quarter and that there are 'no plans to introduce another box to replace Revue'."

Interesting blog post, Eugenia, and sadly, the passage of a year has not improved the situation. But the most important point you made is buried right at the end:

"Stop the per-country madness"

There are around 6.6 billion of us NOT living in the US. In South Africa, for example the only way I can get full functionality on iTunes and the AppleTV is to break the law and set up a fake US iTunes account. It happens, people quite openly admit it on the discussion forums around here.

Fire up the Hulu or Netflix websites and you get vague excuses for not being available in your country. Meanwhile, I can email and tweet with people all over the planet. The first content provider that truly goes global will be raking in the money.
