All these stories at Paul Buff company with Einsteins and AB Maxs could be be very sinister and may signal frantic attempts by the management to keep the company alive. There is a lot of new worthy competitors in the last year or two and multiplied by the state of current economy I am not surprised that it is very difficult to stay in business.
Have you ever heard about for example a new Canon camera before it is officially released to the public ? The new development in a company usually is a top secret and companies are very diligent keeping that secret.
If you look closer there is very little new real development at Paul Buff. All is empty talks with unfulfilled promises.
I have been waiting for cyber commanders for a year now and still cannot comprehend why it is not there. A flash controller is not more complicated than a regular home phone and if the company cannot release it in time I would be very cautios making a bigger investment depending on it.
Caveat: I this is just my reasoning the real picture could be very different.
