Default No Zune Originals For You! Unless You're in the USA

<div class='os_post_top_link'><a href='http://https://zuneoriginals.net/BSTSite/errorPages/IPError.aspx' target='_blank'>http://https://zuneoriginals.net/BSTSite/errorPages/IPError.aspx</a><br /><br /></div><img border="1" src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com//zt/auto/1194981434.usr1.png" alt="" /><br /><br /><em>Aww crap</em>. The <a target="_blank" href="http://www.zuneoriginals.com">Zune Originals site</a> is doing geographic IP blocking. In plain English, that means that if you live inside the USA, you can visit <a target="_blank" href="http://www.zuneoriginals.com">Zune Originals</a> and see all the cool designs. I'm in Canada, so I can't. Even if they didn't allow non-US orders, it's really lame that they won't let us browse the site - I often get friends in the USA to order me products that I can't get here and ship them up. Let us look. Let us salivate, even if we can't have it. Let the hype build about the new designs. Don't pour cold water on such a great new concept!<br /><br />I'll have to rig up some browsing proxy to check it out - we will have some high-resolution images of the new Zune Original designs coming up later today though, so watch for it!

eBay is probably your only option, and there is no "ASAP" option.

I haven't tried a proxy solution yet. Something like what this blog entry suggests should work:
