Roadman, I haven't been able to track down Adam, but I'm still working on that for a follow-up. Clearly Sundar positions his company in as positive a light as possible. Can't fault him for that, and execs aren't going to answer questions they don't want to.
Anything you can share? These guys are worth circling back with in the second half of the year to see how product-development is proceeding and where they are on break-even goals.
Did you get comments from Adam on this article? on why he left. I am seeing lot of FUD by Sundar and team here. Let me put things in perspective bit they have IBM Power socket for caching IP, may be a Hauwei, Cisco probably told them to go pound sand, as they bought their prior stuff Nemo. So they have 22 people out in foreign countries, at low cost for great window dressing. This makes it great Life Style Company, not a future breakthrough corp that someone will want for 10X bucks, like there VC Friends would want as well. Go ask lightspeed why they have not funded this company another $20M bucks, or any other VC's in the valley. May be you will some clarity, unless you are part of this FUD campaign.
Drones are, in essence, flying autonomous vehicles. Pros and cons surrounding drones today might well foreshadow the debate over the development of self-driving cars. In the context of a strongly regulated aviation industry, "self-flying" drones pose a fresh challenge. How safe is it to fly drones in different environments?
