This just in: Lisbon is NOT in the Middle East


From the mailbox:

Nice those news from Apple Portugal and Lisbon.

Of course you surely know that Lisbon is in Western Europe and part of the European Union (EU). So far it’s the only EU country without a Apple official representation. Some more data: in Portugal people speak Portuguese (as in Brazil and several other countries in Africa and Asia). The distance between Portugal (capital: Lisbon) and Lebanon (capital: Beirut) is 4000 kilometers.

see: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Portugal

So, in all, saying that Lisbon is in Lebanon is like saying New York is in Venezuela. I suppose Hugo Chávez would like that. ;)
