Kurt...

Yes, the thread was hijacked. I plan to start a new thread once we see the press release and we can start a new discussion based off what is presented. In the meanwhile, response to the questions above were what prompted this discussion.

As for EI's worthiness as a tool, it does quite well in the architecture field (as you stated) but also does well in broadcast design. Either market would be capable of supporting a niche application like EIAS if the owning company were to specifically choose to cater to that market. That's never happened before. EITG continued to push EIAS as an all around product and squared it off against the top 5.

I've mentioned several times before, if EI is to go against the top five, its priorities must change.

Ok, I won't post any more un-supportive posts here until I see the announcement.



Hi Wilson,

The only information I have on Telsa is Brad's consistent commitment on bringing it back on the market. I know the deal with Tomas and the Igors, along with the Ramjac situation created a huge detour for Brad. Now that the deal is complete, we should see forward momentum again. Or at least we hope.

My 2 cents here. Over the years, quite often with EI, they say they are ready to announce some exciting news. But turns out they are not really ready and users were made to wait and wait, sometimes very very long. Maybe in the future, they should have everything ready to go 100%, press releases already written, everything finalized before letting a single word out.

Well nobody has actually announced anything (product wise) other than a change in ownership. So we don't know what that entails. So the PR should help clarify that.

Actually no official announcement has been made AT ALL.
There was only a "leak" of information in this thread

Let's wait and see what the official statement is.

Dave you know as well as I do that the hand off of EIAS from EITG to the Igors and Tomas is public knowledge.

http://www.eitechnologygroup.com/ne...chnology_group/

After receiving word that the deal was complete from Brad, I posted it here. All I stated was the "deal" was done. Numerous users have written me wanting to know the status of the deal.

Nothing was "leaked", nothing was compromised and if anything, after 8 months of total silence, I think people were wanting to hear some kind of news as to what's going on.

Product details and the specifics of the deal have not been posted, nor would they be. That is up to the Igors and Tomas to unveil.

Well, that's my point, exactly
Brad, Tomas, and the Igors have not posted any info here directly.
So no "official" announcement or communication has been made to the community.
I was also referring to David Wu's comment about users getting partial information, and having to "wait and wait" for the full story.

We are all anxious for news, but let's wait for an official announcement from them.
If the "deal" (whatever it is) is done or nearly done, then we should not have long to wait.
