I was promised.a galileo. RRS feed

  • Question

  • Many months ago I was told that I was suitable for a Galileo and I'd be told when it would ship to me. Am I getting it or does living in NZ mean I miss out?

  • Unfortunately, they were not able to fulfill all the requests for budgetary reasons. You can purchase one at a variety of vendors, including Amazon (http://www.amazon.com/Intel-Galileo-Board-Single-GALILEO2/dp/B00MF753JY/ref=sr_1_1?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1418933634&sr=1-1&keywords=galileo+gen+2)

  • Strangely there are a number of countries that it is difficult to ship to, even if the item is free or a gift. I can't give you a specific list but if you live in one of these countries and work in technology I suspect you have run into outrageous import duties that are multiple times the cost of the item that is being shipped.

    For example, I have relatives in Spain.  I sent them Christmas gifts that included photos, a sweater and some warm boots from Canada.  They wanted 3 times the cost of the boots to release them from customs but the tariff was not for the boots! I did not have a value for the photos so they decided at a value and charged the fee based on that number they dreamed up.  My Aunt had to threaten to get a lawyer or a newspaper involved for them to release the goods at a reasonable cost. Feliz Nadvidad!
