Submission + - Epson Closes American Tech Support; Moves to Asia

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."

I just got my first cell phone two weeks ago, and I'm 20. I did fine without one all that time and even now I don't use it all that often. I really only got one because I won't have a landline phone in my apartment (though, I will admit, it is nice to have just in case and has proved handy a few times). Even so I mostly use it as a watch :P
