    Just yesterday we found evidence that Amazon was offering some limited international shipping of the Google Chromecast even though Google is currently selling the device outside of the US. Shortly after our story broke, users began to find that ordering had dried up. Here's a follow-up to that, showing that Amazon has indeed shut-down the ability to get the Chromecast shipped anywhere outside the United States.

    It looks like there was a brief window in which it was possible to get it, but somewhere in the timeline, someone intervened and shut it down. Amazon has indicated they will honor the existing orders, but no new ones are available, as you can see in the screenshot above. Sorry for any false hope/excitement this caused. :(

    So what you're saying is, I should buy a bunch of Chromecast and sell them on Ebay for $60 a pop?
