I know for some reason we don't get a lot of the good tech stuff and auto stuff here first. Like I-phones are on T-Mobile but only in Europe. Certain cars like the MB Hybrid I heard are already selling in Europe and Asia.

Also the Touareg V6 TDI has been selling Europe and Asia for 4 or 5 years yet the first ones will be delivered in the States next March or April. The US is quite backwards in some product releases.

I think it may have to do with politics, trade or something. Also maybe patent rights and protection on certain technologies used to create these products. I'm just not sure.

For instance it took me over 10 years to take delivery of my 1994 Q45T, what gives..................
