    The crowdfunded phone of the future was a multimillion-dollar scam - The Verge
    Aug 13, 2019
    https://www.theverge.com/2019/8/13/...-indiegogo-crowdfunding-phone-scam-fraud-case

    ...
    Five years later, Tschiltsch still wouldn’t have a Futurefön.
    Instead, he’d be sitting in an Illinois courthouse testifying at the behest of the FBI, which claimed the device was the last step in a decade-long fraud operation that cost victims nearly $6 million.
    “I always thought it was ambitious,” Tschiltsch says now.
    “It didn’t occur to me that the guy had just taken the money.”

    Tschiltsch is just one of many angry Indiegogo backers who say Futurefön creator Jeff Batio strung them along with lies, excuses, and faked product updates.
    But the backers aren’t just angry with Batio.
    They’re frustrated by how easily a scammer could flourish in the high-risk world of gadget crowdfunding — and how poorly Indiegogo was equipped to deal with it.

    Everything on Indiegogo is a scam. Where’s the news article on how much we were scammed?

    Easily solved, contact 'the verge'. Tell them what you know and let them do the leg work on piecing things together.

    So looks like we have more or less the same toys.
    This is my setup for extended trips...

    Essentially, yeah :), but my portable setup is: LG V20 > Audioquest Dragontail (Carbon) > iFi iSilencer > Furutech OTG > Go2Pro. I have the Revive but I leave it at home.

    What's the ID on the bag? I really like that thing. (mine below, ID on album is Cirith Ungol - 'Paradise Lost', 1991)

    That’s a good idea. Getting another company who did the same thing like LH would only give this article more credence and make the article even more poignant. They could contact the writer and just point them to this very long thread and he could pull so many quotes and promises, it’s not funny.
    edit: I just emailed the author of that Verge article and pointed her to this thread. Maybe you all should do the same, maybe something might come out of it.

    What case is everything in?
     
  8. m-i-c-k-e-y
    Its a case for 2.5 HDDs made by TaylorHE. Try searching on Amazon "2.5 hdd eva case".
    @stuck limo You should try Revive in your portable setup!

    Edit: Found it

    This is what I use to cart everything around: https://imgur.com/a/JJBKaSL

    Edit: Fiio A5 shown in there that I bring sometimes, depending on setup. But usually the back compartment area is full of V20 batteries.

    the one I have shuts off randomly if not plugged in on the charger, so that's on desktop speakers. The other one I have is going to be stationed on a new headphone system at home. If I somehow got a third one, I may consider carrying it around. But for now, the iSilencer works really well for sound quality and avoiding bulk.

    But the Light Harmonic site is still up and running... If Larry Ho was a real great guy, he would give each and every one who perked on the Geek Wave one of his new Mera IEMs, you know just as a sign of gratitude to all those who backed him... But, I don't really believe that Larry is a real great guy, so no one should expect to get a Mera IEM from him unless, of course, you pay for it....

    Even if I paid for it, I still wouldn't expect to receive it given the track record involved. Warranty and technical support as well as customer service would likely also be non-existent, in the event one needs it (i.e. if you've actually received any product to begin with).

    Wave team is working on finalizing the beta candidate PCB configuration right now. When that's finalized, they'll work on the final release candidate board. Per Larry:

    "The first photo is the board modified to test software related features (Bluetooth tuning and the rest).. not the final board design. The second photo is focused on internal storage access speed optimization and jitter removal for digital audio transmission."

    Yeah, that looks like a sample from years ago.

    Looks like Larry is trying to stall out a lawsuit.
