    I read many stories on the Microsoft band. It appears MS have banned the sale of this except if you are an American.
    What about a story abt why MS is restricting most things to usa only and nowhere in Australia. Very frustrating trying to purchase the band in oz.

    Eh you are aware that the band is now available on sites like best buy and amazon right?? MS did not want to get into this business, but they simply wanted to demonstrate the power of the data services they had at their disposal (well at least according to them), but now that the demand has grown, they are apparently leaping into the fray...

    Furthermore the band was only released for the US to keep it limited and gather data. It made sense that they would want to limit to the US to test it out :) Better to test sth out in your own backyard, rather then the neighbors yard, right?
