I'd actually noticed this earlier today when adding some urls to Ink. It's certainly convenient and must be pretty recent as PositionTech haven't updated their relevant media pack to include the service yet.
Can't find any date reference on their site as yet though.
Obviously if there is no difference in submitting via the US link then I will use that. But if my UK sites are going to be penalised or rank lower because of it then I guess I will have to pay the rip off UK price :(
<rant>This is a real bug bear of mine. I can understand having to pay more for a CD or a DVD in the UK, I may not like it but I understand that there are other factors involved that can affect the price.
But why is a service or digital product priced differently? Corbis do exactly the same and charge the dollar price in sterling on their .co.uk site. So as far as they are concerned I live in Arkansas ;) </rant>

I had a look at both sites yesterday, and noticed that the UK price was much more expensive, but you could change your URL within 30 days. The US is cheaper but you cannot change your URL at all after you have submitted it.
