@DiggerJim, yep. The track record so far sucks. And I see your point on all the negatives. But, we really know nothing about what's going on right now. I would be right next to you now, if it weren't for the prototype videos at a Mexican restaurant with Mr.T.
When I was in China I tried to go visit him. But, I realized what a rational paranoid rabbit hole someone could potentially fall into. From John's perspective, it's gotta be hard to know who you can trust and who's going to swindle you.
I respect your product development experience. And I recognize Earl's failed potential. But, I also can see where there's a probability that things aren't as dire as you make them out to be.
There was alot of doom talk just before the prototype videos came out. Then there wasn't. Then there was a really sloppy update as he switched to a new company. Now there's a lot of doom talk again.
I'm just pointing out that we're all in the same dark room. Whatever your calculus, even if its some judgment call about a sparse track record, its still pretty ill informed.
