Steve.. let's get real here.. first off:
I'm not just ONE person.
Or rather there is not just one person in my
"company" working on this stuff.. I'm the
founder and the figurehead.. I'm the guy
who takes the abuse.
But if you went to a Gateway Tech, and you
spent some time you'd see that it's not "I"
it's "WE"... and if you think there is ANYONE
on this God's Green Earth that can touch
the feet (technically) of the people who
I work with.. well.. all I can say is..
BZZZZZT.. WRONG ANSWER.. Thank you for playing.
It really is that simple!
You keep talking about innovation.. so let's
look at it:
Who did the first BMW flash memory programming?
Who designed the first BMW HFM system?? (we did)
Who designed the first supercharger to run
without add-on crap (we did)
Who designed the first BMW turbo to run without
add-on injectors (we did)
Who discovered the need for filter shielding
in intakes (we did)
Should I go on?
The problem that you are remiss in your failure
to admit, is that "copies" of the original are
just that.. COPIES.. not "IMPROVEMENTS".
Improvements are given applause!
COPIES are dealt with in the court system.
Can we all get on with life now?
