Revolution apologizes for Contest

Due to some internal upheaval in and around Revolution, the contest was never fulfilled by Revolution They have sincerely apologized for the botched contest. After hearing that we provided prizes to the winners, Revolution has sent me some Linkstation Pros for a new contest. Stand by...

How many are there?

Support for your Kurobox comes from users all around the world. With Revolution's help, we will be letting users and potential users see how many Kuros are in circulation and where they are. Obviously, a larger user base means more support for this little device. Soon you will be able to see just how big the population of Kuros is. Until then, check out the map in the sidebar to see where Kurobox Wiki visitors are located.
