Hysteria. Here's a more measured piece (with references, too).
... in fact, I checked the engadget site and they're linking mutantfrog also,
so it seems they're up to date also.
In fact, this is actually a *good* thing for foreign collectors because what's
really going on is that the equipment will need certification ... except if
it's bound for export. In that case, many smaller used dealers will probably
just try to sell it on eBay or some other foreign trade channel because it
will be cheaper for them than keeping it domestically and having to have
certification as a service centre.
