He's got a point. Building computers is simply not a terrifically difficult business.

I was in St. Petersburg (Putin's hometown) a few months ago visiting in-laws, and I helped them pick out their first computer from a local vendor. What they got was a pretty nice machine for the money. The selection was good. A fine consumer experience, overall.

Do they need a foreign corporation in that market locally? Would they benefit immensely from that? Not really.

The more cordial the buyer's secretary, the greater the odds that the competition already has the order.
