Hivemind suggestions for a newbie

Graphicnovelfilter : I am very much a novice when it comes to graphic novels but have enjoyed the realist works of Joe Sacco (The Fixer & Palestine) and The Burma Chronicles (Guy Delise) initially kickstarted along time ago by my stumbling upon Harvey Pekar (American Splendour). What other graphic novels of this nature should I be tracking down? I'm interested in International Relations / Politics / History / Travel / Journalism / Espionage - as well as more esoteric perspectives on the world - so anything ticking these boxes would be great.

iPhone 4s international unlock questions

I just had my Verizon iPhone 4s unlocked for international use and confirmed working with two different foreign SIM cards. Three questions:
  1. Is this permanent? Can it ever be re-locked via software or some other method?
  2. Can this be used with US SIM cards, or are there restrictions?
  3. Is this phone now identical to an unlocked iPhone, or is it somehow different?

Best Websites Not from the USA?

While it's true that we can consider the internet as a 'global village', my feeling is that the USA holds the most imposing bias. We can't deny the fact that a huge proportion of the best websites and online services are from the USA or are otherwise USA-centric. As someone who lives in a far flung part of the world and who enjoys devouring all manner of information from the Web, I do find it frustrating at times that there are not more international sites with influence. Probably the only exception I can think of may be with News websites such as BBC and Al Jazera. I would be interested to know what your favourite non-American websites may be, whether they be oriented to your locality but still have useful international relevance, or if they truly are an international player?

Smarter way to consolidate a big international Amazon shipment?

Smartest way to consolidate a large international order from Amazon.com? A big enough order to get free shipping within the US, and of mostly small and light items from multiple vendors, but international shipping will add several hundred to the cost. This is to Singapore, but the Singapore service (Vpost.com.sg) is frankly lousy, and I'd like an alternative.
