Probably nothing but it's worth noting as those domains are new registers and not just some transfers.



Now to the fun part:
What could "Ab" mean...
Augmented Body? Augmented Buttocks? A-Flat (A♭)?

"That's a nice beergut you've got."

"Thanks, I call it my Xbox ab."

Swedes are buying Xbox from Microsoft?

Wikipedia said:
Aktiebolag (literally "share company" or "stock company") is the Swedish term for "limited company" or "corporation".

When used in company names, it is abbreviated "AB" or "Ab" (roughly equivalent to the abbreviations Ltd and PLC).

Xbox One successor will be Xbox A and then Xbox AB will be like the new Elite and will come with Super Kinect.

It's probably something related to AB Testing, where you have multiple UI's for the same website to try and gather statistics...
If they're not using Google analytics they're probably going to redirect users within these domains on their tests.

I'd really doubt they'd be using split page testing at Microsoft... that's pretty 2008.

I still find it ridiculous that they named it the Xbox One

how are we supposed to distinguish it from the original Xbox (which, presumably, should be called XBOX1)

I guess they've just made it 100% obsolete :3
and some say time-travel isn't real. This post is almost a year old.

It stands for X-Box Aaron Burr. And oh shit, the PS4 is Alexander Hamilton! Shit is going down now!
