Yeah, one snag: one needs a US bank account for this. So for us europeans
this is less practical. Believe me i've considered it after enjoying watching
your unboxing stream :)

We might be able to get around it by finding a hacker space willing to lend
us their bank account, but you get into the whole exporting of money thing
then as well..
