Re: Endless Repeater Updates...
Obviously, people who aren't involved with the design and manufacturing of
electronic devices cannot know just how difficult it is to make a good
of the time frame to first shipment and the cost to manufacture. In 2000,
on Lucent Technologies' team to provide NTT/DoCoMo with third generation
wideband CDMA base stations. As a Product Engineer, I was responsible for
ensuring models/prototypes were made on time with all of the latest mods,
ensuring that designs are properly done and documented and consider
manufacturing issues, and move the designs into manufacture. IF it were
then ANYONE could do it... THEY CAN'T.
If the Repeater is delayed to ensure that I get a a cadillac at sub-compact
price, then I say fine. It gives me time to save up or collect interest
savings! I, for one, will be very patient.
