I will summarize some of the replies I killed.

1. Marketing for this product is touting it as new technology as where it

4. Two people who I think compete with them mailed gushing vitriole.

Points 3 and 4 don't really need any comments. Point 1 is a pretty
standard observation - marketing is marketing and rarely reflects
reality. Point 2 is moot. If someone signs up for this (and they have I
