    Canada sells the most Uranium in the world. According to intelligence reports I have read, that Uranium in Iran, came from Canada. A shady business they run, when they enable certain countries the key component to make nukes. So don't act high and mighty because you are in Canada. They have many rediculous, protectionist policies in Canada. Just look at how they try to protect their culture by making it illegal to show more than a certain percentage of foreign media content. :shadedshu

    Why would someone worry about their country's culture being forgotten? It just keeps your country stale and self indulgent.

    erm.... what?

    You go away for a bit and come back to the same thread only to see that it's been turned into something nasty.

    For canadians - it is better because it provides competition - thus making prices lower and better services for them

    For americans - the firm gets bigger, thus they can extend into other countries markets

    For the world - we just have to sit tight and wait for it to happen, because one day newegg, just like every big firm will eventually set up shop on your door step.

    Like all the intelligence reports that came out from Bush and the boys to invade Iraq, and now the truth is out, and now its time for the Americans to take back their country and impeach Bush. The American people have lost over 4000 young soldiers, for what, to keep Bush and his con artists in power and to get richer, (and of course to have a steady supply of oil which is good right). The thing that is wrong is how one goes about dealing with the rest of the world.
    Now back to the subject at hand, competition is good, but the word competition means to compete against, not to come into a smaller country and buy up or squeeze out your competitor because of size. Microsoft and Intel seem to come to mind, and some of the larger telco's and cable companies.

    It was in the news here almost two years ago, still nothing :(

    http://forums.techpowerup.com/showthread.php?t=13035

    EU site would be great, I'm using newegg already from time to time to read user opinions on products, even though I can't buy there.

    Some products just have no availability here or astronomical prices. I was looking for a new LCD, but every decent priced 22" has something wrong with them. Had to go for 20" (LG L207WT) and order it from France :)

    But they didn't register a "newegg.eu" domain name the way they have with "newegg.ca" confirming they're making one.

    Yeah, seems they have no plan for it. They could have sold same stuff for a higher price in the .eu store, but shipping stuff to Canada than here will be a lot cheaper :)

    LOL Im sure man, the Canadian Government helping Iran by supplying them with nuclear material LOL. and about blocking media/other cultures! wtf lol we have one of the most welcoming cultures in the world and plenty of multi cultural festival throughout Canada plenty of times per year... even in small cities! Canada is VERY welcoming to learn about other cultures and about other countries in general, not just thier own.

    you might as well belive that the USA government set up 9/11 aswell.

    R.I.P. to all the lost soles of 9/11

    but back on topic. I just had to prove a point, dont believe everything you read even if its been "Studied" by government scientists. they've been proven very wrong in some of thier studies on illicit drugs.. scare tactics. if you want more info on that IM me.

    That has alot to do with 9/11?????? Mindless insults do nothing but try to discredit people in an immature fashion. Why not call me "Hitler"? WTF

    Your own country admits to selling nuclear materials to both countries(Pakistan and Iran). Look it up. :laugh:

    Unless you think that they were just joking when confirming it.

    Australia refused selling uranium to Pakistan for moral reasons but Canada went ahead and sold some to them.

    But Canada sold material to these countries under the understanding that both Pakistan and Iran would just be using it for nuclear power plants and not making nukes. But its naive to think that those two countries would use it exclusively for that purpose(nuclear power).


    PS. Newegg is a great company and will be great competition in the consumer electronics market in Canada. You guys should welcome it. I sure would! I have only had good experiences with Newegg. I do not suggest buying LCD's from them though. Their dead pixel policies are kind of unreasonable.

    Are you for real? Come on man our countries are so linked together from culture , to buisness, family and friends. Heck if you dropped me in Ontario blind folded it would take me about 3 hours to figure out I wasn't in the northern states man. let not get crazy here Canada has benifited greatly from being neighbors with the USA as has the USA with Canada. Besides the UK no two countries have as much in commons as the USA and Canada.

    Iraq bought a few hundred if I remember. Thier we go Iraq's name is in the news again. It might been N Korea. Thats what got Bush and Cheney uptight and all excited about Iraq in the first place, Saddam probably bought them for his friends kids for christmas and some idiot in the Whitehouse was able to convince Bush and his Cons (without to much pressure)that they were going to be used for nuclear or chemicals of mass destruction. With their giant Ego's what happened after just grew into an unstopable force. They remind me of Joe Mcarthy who thought their was a Commie under everybodies bed, and an old saying "Better Dead then Red". Bush and his Cons just took it to another level.:banghead: I still can't figure out how these idiots get elected other then what happened in Florida before Bush got elected by a couple of votes and oh ya his brother Jeb happened to be Govenor at the time hmmm, :rolleyes: Bush and his Cons make the X Files look mild and them more deadly in comparison. Enough of the history lesson.

    It was over oil and secondary was terrorist and the saddam stuff, just as WWII the fighting with Japan and the USA was over Indonesia oil feilds. Japan knew the Untied States would not allow the Japanese those oil fields (the mideast of the world at the time) and Japan wanted to take over China so they sneak attacked the USA at pearl harbor , to break the american will and to obtain that oil.. They knew they would have to fight us anyways, so why not strike first, and yes it was over oil. Most wars are over natural resources. In the gulf the USA and UK did, however, remove a brutal dictator who killed over 3 million of his own people, used chemical weapons on the Kurds killing 300,00 people, had build a atom accereator which we found in Iraq, and was caught with a Atom splitting magnets by UN inspector David kay. We also found a large amount of yellow cake Urainum in Iraq that was just send to Canada to be desposed of, as Scottland yard warned the world Saddam was trying to buy. However, as you can see Saddam had no intention of making weapons of mass distruction or for that matter intention of using them if he did obtain them, but in the end it was still over the second largest oil pool in the world.


    Back on topic I love Canada and Newegg.

    I get my computer supplies out of Vancover using Puralator which the company usually ships with and get overnight delivery. This one time they offered free delivery and used UPS and it became a three night delivery. I asked UPS what was the delay and he said their system is geared for the Larger cities not the rural areas. Could have been a one time bug :respect:So if I happen to order from NewEgg I hope they use the better carrier
