Microsoft registers XboxAb.com and XboxAb.net

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♭)?

What could "Ab" mean...
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).

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
