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.

Ditto..just noticed it.
I'm almost positive it wasn't there on Tuesday (02/18)
Very nice, I think I'll add a few URLs..

I was just about to submit some sites to AskJeeves and noticed it went to position tech. The price quoted is £40 for the first url and £25 for the rest.
But if you try to submit from the Teoma site it takes you to I need hits where the prices quoted are $30 for the first and $18 for the rest.
This is quite a saving over half the price!
Does it matter which site I use to submit the sites? They are all UK targetted.

Yes I just noticed this yesterday.

if you follow the link from askjeeves.co.uk you get shown the higher UK prices but if you go direct to Position Tech you get shown the lower US prices.

Was dropped in the forums a few weeks ago - I can't find the thread at the moment.

Yeah that is the expensive UK prices :(
[positiontech.com...] is the cheaper US charges.
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.
At least that was my understanding of the Rules.
