After almost 3 long years (I backed EARL on May 14th
of 2013) of waiting and waiting, I am writing to say I am done. I thought I was done months ago, when I
requested a refund, but never received it.
Supposedly, you processed it, but my bank has not been helpful and your
lack of communication does nothing for me.
So I have conceded that money and now believe I paid for the pricey dream
of an outdoor tablet.
Many trips where I could have used the EARL, have come and
gone. Each of those adventures was awesome
without the EARL. Would the EARL have improved
these trips? Who knows?
In the end I know one thing that I learned from this
experience. I have learned that you are
a coward. I cannot speculate about your
actual motives, pure or otherwise. Maybe
you have been trying hard, even to this day.
Maybe not. Clearly you are way
over your head. Coward is the right word
though, as you lack the courage to face any of your backers. Thousands of backers have provided hundreds
of thousands of dollars in funding and you failed at providing even the most
basic form of updates. In today’s
society of 140 character sound bites, people would have been happy with a
handful of words. Coward.
To close, I wish you no ill will. I am forgiving and forgetting. I will not check for updates and am getting
rid of the bookmarks I have for your sites.
I am not devoting any more time to the EARL. If one day, I receive a box from Sqigle with
my EARL (since I have received no refund), I will be presently surprised. I
doubt that will happen.
PS. @ToddCady is the real MVP in this whole
process. At a minimum you should be
paying him something.
