Yeah, Griffin has pretty much lost all respectability in the Mac market, I'm afraid. They have decent products from what I hear, but their customer service is for shat, and this silliness of announcing a product 2 years before it goes on a 2 month backorder is simply unacceptable.<br><br>

Yep, I concur on you with that. They have innovative products, but if you have to wait forever to see them in production, forget it. Bad, bad way to do business. I don't care how cool their stuff is, I would never deal with Griffin again after my iTrip experience.<br><br>
I've used two Griffin products (iMic and Pro Speaker breakout adapter) - both work great. This is another case of management and marketing promising what the engineers are not ready to deliver. I feel bad for the engineers, they do good work.<br><br>

Well, if the product is not ready, I'm guessing it's the engineers, but they would not have announced it a year ago. I'm guessing marketing just took the plans for it and made an ad campaign around it, ignoring the fact that the product was not close to being ready.<br><br>
This thread is the first I've heard of this device. If they can ever build it I'd snag one in a second! Great idea! <br><br>I'm in the marketing/advertising department of my company and I have to deal with engineering daily. Sometimes it's like pulling teeth to get anything out of there. But I definitely wouldn't start marketing an item a year before it was ready. Shame on them!<br><br>
