Kazakhstan Mobile Banking – Nice!

Like my mama used to tell me, "If you don’t have something nice to say about Kazakhstan, don’t say it at all."

Granted, Borat never had such a mama. But in light of all the unflattering press coverage Borat has bestowed upon the country he deems so misogynous, anti-Semitic, and incestuous, here’s some real news about what’s going on there, via Moconews.net: National Bank of Kazakhstan: 100 thousand mobile clients.

What?

Read the article. It’s really impressive, especially compared to what we’re used to in the US.

Maybe this will give the president of Kazakhstan something else to talk about with President Bush other than Sacha Baron Cohen. 

(After seeing both of those articles back to back, it’s hard to think which one’s more incredible.)
