Bing doesn't know that Africa exists

Microsoft's much-hallowed search engine, Bing, which was launched after Microsoft CEO Steve Balmer vowed to "f*cking kill Google", is a bit.... limited, shall we say. Apart from the availability and reliability issues that are so characteristic for Microsoft (the page to submit a site frequently comes up as "not available, please reload"), there is one thing strangely absent from Bing's list of countries to search in: /the entire continent of Africa is missing/! Bing places South African customers in the UK and there's no way to change that. Are they mad?

Well, that should help South African companies to be listed as relevant search hits. :-(

Wake up, Microsoft! Oh, and if you need me, I'll be on Google...

Update: I have complained about it, but don't get your hopes up...
