I guess you could say I was just venting out loud. After knowing that this thread started in Jan 07 after a previous thread or two had discussed Brett's upcoming new solution. So in essance, we're getting close to almost 2 years from the first mentioning of this initiative. Hence my venting. I could see if a company had numerous other projects on the go that deliberate focus on this one exclusively would not be feasable. I may be wrong, but isn't this a single solitary initiative of a single model? Variations are expaected to appear after the QC on this initial one has been proven. I would think that in a fast paced arena of eletronics, one not only has to be competitive, but also creative and quick to employ it's new products. Else, a newer, better mouse trap maker will come along. Perhaps the saving grace in all of this is that there isn't another manufacturer who has stepped up as of yet to produce a similar type product. If one does, most assuredly, you may see this project step up it's tempo so as to not "miss the boat". Competition is very healthy for growth and quality in developement to actual production. Since there is no real competition per say to this unit, the incentive to step up the tempo is not there. At least that's how I see it. Then again, I could be completely wrong and it wouldn't be the first time.
