I remember them - guys at my work swore they helped them with everything... I laughed when one of the magical symbols fell of it and it was just a bit of rubber ;)

Anyway, the company that made them was in a world of pain once the court had decided that their usefulness was so over stated that they had to refund everyone who wanted their money back. Just goes to show people will buy anything with enough hype...

They should have made it fun for us all and included instructions like - "the balance power is only unlocked when you say the power word Alcatraz!"...

Then we could remind the people who bought them - "remember when you used to run around saying alcatraz all the time? That was funny"....

here's the info from the ACCC...
