Hi David.

I don't think this is where she was heading and I am sorry that you feel 
that the device is not recommendable.  I have seen lots of bugs in jaws and 
window eyes and some in the Mac and windows and computers that never work 
right yet they get shoved at clients so I personally feel that the Icon is 
recommendable and I do recommend it.  It is not for the faint of heart and 
perhaps not for the enterprise at this point but it certainly has a place as 
a "mobile "manager" and I don't think you will find anything on the market 
comparably priced that is as flexable and reliable and yes, bug free.

I think your term argue is a bit strong and shows that you are
offended that anyone would question the price your company is
wanting to charge.  What you are saying is that it is fine to talk
about other products that can be used with the Icon.  But, we don't
want to hear from you about what we charge for our products.

I'm sorry, but a person has every right to question what appears to
be a price that is much higher than it should be charging.  And, one
also has a right to expect a device costing $1,395 to be reliable.
You have a very nice product, but it appears that there are far too
many bugs in the unit at this point for me to feel confortable with
recommending it for our clients.

Okay guys.  As I said with the docking station, what one decides is
worth it
or not worth it for them is an individual choice.  We welcome
information
about products that may be used with Icon/Braille +.  In other
words, feel
free to post about external drives that work well with the unit.
However,
one's decisions about what one buys and the value thereof are
really between
one and one's self, and need not be argued about on this list.
