How Long Until Software Dev Forum Closes ?
This is a serious question btw to the mods.
First of all let me say ( as I have done privatly to the admin team ) MP3car has its place in the intenational community BUT I feel there may be some conflicts about to arise in your neutralaty of running this forum.
Its OK to attach a shop which sells items you can get else where - I have no issue in this... what I am really concerned about is the fact you are now pushing your own products both hardware and more worringly software ( and I wont go in to its cost and beta status ).
This in my opinion will create a direct conflict with the existing software projects within the Software & Software Development forum which IMHO do have far better offerings. This is some thing I even said to God of CPU on http://www.digital-car.co.uk when he visted recently.
My point is these projects effectivly give the community software helped created by in some cases the community and supported by the community.
Now forgeting the fact that there is currently no support for Streetdeck or connectivty to decent nav packages, no thought for out side of the USA etc ( and I take my hat off to GodofCPU for creating it - no one can take that way from him ) its been pushed on the very same forum.
I mean it stands to reason.. if some one can get another product that does the same and in some cases more, is better supported even if its by the commmunity, and it costs less then your not going to turn a profit which is what Selling Streetdeck is about. What about those that are charged for such as Phonecontrol which Streetdeck will also replicate ? Again a more direct comercial conflict.
So my question is... How Long Until Software Dev Forum Closes due to this conflict or are you going to take some remedial action ?
Further more is it possible to identify those people who are staff or involved in MP3car commercial project via their custom title... I had no idea who he was at first... I think it would be much clearer for those talking to each other exactly where they are coming from.... especially when Joe Bloggs is looking for help.
IMHO... as I say these are talking points and not digs.
