Just wild thought on a tech forum, in a thread about the article about your product.
Oh and as a separate note "we explained the refund process" is not even close to explaining how you said a thing that is not true regarding a financial transaction of which you have actual records. For goodness sake just admit you spoke before you checked and had made an assumption.
The battle against English usage continues unabated:
prototype/ˈprəʊtətʌɪp/If you think that this description is "pejorative" rather than descriptive, I hope this dictionary definition will educate. If you don't actually believe it's "pejorative" but are just playing the appeal to motive card once again, that's getting a bit old.nounnoun: prototype; plural noun: prototypes1.a first or preliminary version of a device or vehicle from which other forms are developed."the firm is testing a prototype of the weapon"
- the first, original, or typical form of something; an archetype."these objects are the prototypes of a category of rapidly spinning neutron stars"
synonyms: original, first example, first model, master, mould, template, framework, mock-up, pattern, type; More
To say “No product shipped”, is an unambiguous, false claim.
Only if incomplete protoypes = product. To claim unfinished work as work is fine, but it is somewhat ambiguous.
Has a anything been sent to a customer, where that customer now owns what was sent?
That would be no, to the best of my knowledge, feel free to chip in here.
Has a anything been sent to a customer, which will not require and update from you to become the same as a 'finished' general release product?
That would be no, to the best of my knowledge.
Test units have been shipped to testers != Completed, purchased units are now the property of our customers.
"Product has been shipped" could be argued to describe either of those positions severally. So the positive statement is ambiguous, rendering the negative also ambiguous.
You don't gain anything with line of reasoning.
The battery thing, no clue sorry. I don't make batteries lithium batteries and I'm not familiar with them beyond mundane user experience.
My questions still stand regarding the current configuration of those units, because like others I would be fascinated to here more about the product, and how long it will take to get into customers hands. I would certainly like to hear less of you conspiracy theories regarding the motive of posters and a lot less about you complaining about customers. in general.
