    Everyone has their theory on the, long awaited, update.
    What's yours?

    None of the above.

    It was complex and they have been working on it for a while BUT they only assigned one developer part time to fix it.

    Simple lack of resources and low prioritization are the issues.

    Yes.. sucks being the lonely man.. He might of had some personal issues arise in his life.. Family emergency, new kid being born or mid-life crisis.

    - They thought their customers are stupid and that they could get away with it.
    - They delayed everything so the customers would "upgrade" to the 755p.

    While we are at it why don't we speculate when Iran is going to invade Israel, and when China will take over the world.

    You'd be about as right with those questions as you are with the poll question, unless of course, if you have the inside conneciton

    Thanks for posting the poll!

    hahahaha I wish there wouldve been a choice saying something along the lines of "they knew there was a problem but didnt REALLY start working on it till Bob-C wrote his letter"

    That's the same thing as "Decided to work on other products." Hence only one developer to work on it.

    That is when I believe they started working on the 700p MR...

    That is why I believe they dragged their feet releasing it...
