+ - Epson Closes American Tech Support; Moves to Asia

Submitted by

Rukawa Kaede writes "According to this report from DailyTech, Epson is shutting down its North American call centers and outsourcing all support to some third party in the Philippines. I can understand the business decision behind this, as everyone is out to save a buck or two, but I still feel rather uneasy when my phone calls get routed to some developing country. If given the option, I might even be willing to pay a few dollars more for my hardware if tech support were to stay on a little bit more familiar ground. Score one for globalization, I guess."
