freitasm: Not sure you are talking about the same people here... There are a few WorldxChange/VFX people around and they are very good. Maverick for example takes his time to help in the forums by providing traces and other information for people experiencing problems.
Review my post history and you will see that Maverick has been making posts in response to my queries just today.
My comment really was a shoot over the bow at the sales guys who have failed to contact me directly and say "Hey Don, we'd love you to sell our product, how can we get you on board?" and not a personal attack on any single individual or company.
freitasm: I haven't seen any attitude in the forums.
I'm seeing a lack of enthusiasm. This is a tough technology but a really good and important one in my view.
My view is that we should do as much as we can to help anyone who's willing to step up to the mic with this stuff because it's important technology for New Zealand.
freitasm: I assume your previous paragraph dissing the competition has nothing to do with you now being a reseller. That would be kind of unethical, right?
I'm enjoying your moderation style man, I really am. You mods play a very level game here on GZ, much more so that the .au forum I also enjoy following, where my comments today would have just been deleted without question or discussion.
Yes my comments do have everything to do with the fact I'm planning on selling 2Talk (I actually haven't made a single sale yet because I'm not confident enough with the product to be willing to put it out there without more testing and understanding, but I'm getting closer.)
From my point of view, I'm a retailer, selling Sony, Samsung, Panasonic video recorders.
I really don't care where you buy your video recorder, nore which brand.
I'm keen to see more videos sold and less people just listening to radio - if you can see past the analogy.
I was keen to point out my vested CLEAR interest in the 2Talk service so as not to mislead.
I would like to represent as many products as I can, and like Maverick and SteveB, simply help people as much as I can with this technology.
Yes, my style from time to time is to take a shot over the bow of other providers and I hope they take one back and me as well if needed!
This is complex technology and we all need to work together as much as we can to master it in the interests of using it to forward New Zealand.
