  1. Isn’t this just announcing a supply agreement with themselves? The same majority stockholder owns both companies! Whatever happened to responsible journalism instead of just reprinting misleading press releases?

    Oh, and what supplier is the second source? What? No alternative supplier?

  2. Carl Berg indeed has interests in both companies so the relationship is a natural fit. I don’t think the release was misleading at all given it was stated at the bottom that Carl Berg is a principle shareholder in both companies. Would the news have more teeth to it if it were a bigger supplier with no relationship to Berg? Absolutely. As for questioning the value of this site and the integrity .. there’s always the back button. A ton of work goes into providing this free service and most appreciate it.
