yeah right.

Seeing as I was only the 194th person to visit their site, either they're a brand new company, or it's a bit of a joke.

I can't imagine even a Bill Gates type spending $75K on a shifter without his friends laughing at him.

Personally, I don't believe it. The fact that it's out of Quebec makes it a little more believable, but still... I don't think so.

Site seems to work fine. I posted about this in the general forum, must've overlooked this thread. They seem to be also selling one on eBay for the same insane price.

Like I said, anybody that buys one has more money than sense!

There's no reward for failure..........but death!

What a waste of platinum.. I mean what is this going to do for you except lighten your wallet by say $75000??? Even if you did have the money for something like this, it just doesn't make sense..
