"A factory mentality in Silicon Valley. If it was GE, it would be great, but this is an outstanding product that needs to be marketed in the current time-frame, not the way it was 20 years ago. Wake up and realize that competitors are nipping at your heels and you have to look like the leader to be the leader."
