Region locks on phone apps

Seriously, WHY? Why does my phone need to be locked down to only load apps from the UK? What the fuck happened to this global phenomenon called the internet? But no, now I can't even install a fucking maps app just because it's not available in the region I live in. "Android is an open platform" - yeah, right. Only if you take the risk to root your device and install dodgy region changer apps.

The internet is becoming fragmented. This is a bad thing. I am ashamed of the time I live in. We used to have shit technology and great technological freedom. Now we have great technology and no freedom.
