    Ah, this I know. But we're talking import/export laws here? Or is it simply that the company decided that the market's not great enough?

    I cant say for sure about the limitations of your import laws but I would definitely say that the decision not to make the iBuzz available to the US market would have a lot to do with lots of conservative God fearing Americans wanting to keep sex in the bedroom souly for procreation purposes only as God intended it. (considering that just over 50% of Americans voted for Bush that decision doesnt suprise me.)

    Combine a few of your points and I think you get at the real truth (regardless of this product): Americans aren't a homogeneous conservative group, and plenty of highly religious Americans are open-minded and thoughtful people. Yet within that there's a big conservative segment that is both ignorant and highly motivated to VOTE while other groups stay home. (And ironically enough, it's a conservative group who allows themselves to be manipulated by a very DIFFERENT conservative group: big business--who pretends to share their Christian values but does not in fact live by them.) A recipe for disaster, to be sure--but I do have to stand up for my fellow Americans: we're not one stereotype. (And note that Bush's approval ratings are very low now.)

    Anyway, watch Griffin's site in the coming weeks :eek:

    So explain why all of their other products apparently have no problems being shipped to the U.S.? The number of Americans wanting sex to be used only for procreation is a tiny minority. Actually, I've never met one. Heck, Bob Dole (the Republican Presidential candidate who ran against Clinton) appeared in commercials promoting Viagra. (Which doesn't quite bear thinking about, but it's the principal of the thing I suppose.)

    When you see what you can get away with regarding sex and the marketing of it in Europe (not including the UK) most of the stuff done or allowed to be marketed in the US is conservative by comparison. I am not saying that you guys don't enjoy sex:eek:

    Other than that, maybe they are just testing out the
    European market first before crossing over the ditch.....:confused:

    A bit like "Lost" only being available for download in the US:rolleyes:

    I rather think it has something to do with the other country that they won't export to in this particular case: Canada. Well, not Canada specifically, but U.S. + Canada. North America. In other words, I strongly suspect it's some sort of electrical regulation thing or incompatibility or something along those rather prosaic lines. Nothing so interesting as sex-hating conservatives, I'm afraid.

    Fair call, Eric. Probably just as well, imagine the 'buzz' you would get from the 'device' short circuting and blowing a fuse;) :D :eek:

    If sounds like a marketing territory issue, some other company probably has the rights to sell it in north america.

    (and, um, for those looking for a vast government conspiracy, you all do know that toys similar to this are commonly available in the US, right? And Canada of course wouldn't be subject to said conspiracy anyway!)

    I guess we are all entitled to our own opinion of the articles posted. ;)

    Its an iPod prepheral device that caters for some slightly different needs. Maybe I should post a few less threads and give a few other posters a chance to get a few more of their posts.:rolleyes: ... naaa.:p

    Whatever IT is, it's available on ebay ;)

    Whether it be a vibrating iPod accessory or downloaded episodes of Lost....I bet you can find them/it. Otherwise, there is always HD downloads which I believe is alright if you subscribe legitimately in the first place....

    I think it's the 'novelty' factor. It IS an iPod accessory ;)

    I'm waiting for the first iChat plug-in:D

    Something that has male/female hardware devices that are for example controlled over iChat by inputs by the other person!

    I guarantee a jump in market-share if Steve goes for it!
