I still hope Tom will come clean and describe what exactly happened over the past 4 months to have to the project end up like this in the end.  At this point, it seems bASIC is out of the game and talking about it likely won't preserve any competitive advantage anymore.

I like their two products already:



I'm going get the one on the right.

Now let me ask you this. What possibly could bitconasic bring to the table that CAN-ELECTRIC couldn't do without? Surely it wasn't the dwindling customer base. They would have done a helluva lot better as a standalone entity. But no, they opted for the excess baggage.

At least they got half the new naming right--CAN.

The only Can Electric I can find is this company, whose physical address is listed as Iraq.  

http://www.canelectric.ca/index.php/contact-us

It's going to take a lot more than a claim on the old bASIC website to convince me that a reputable company has bought Tom out and is offering new products.  Not buying it until they post the kind of contact details which would allow one to ring the main switchboard of the company on the number in the phone book and get put through to a specific person in a specific division.

All I can say is that this is Bitcoin. I don't believe it until I see six confirmations.

I am really hoping this is real.  Grammar and spelling aside the jist of the post rings true for me.  The way all ASIC vendors so far have forced the community to shoulder ALL the risk basically is unbelievable for a newb like me!  Add to that the absolute trainwrek PR and customer service shown by the current players and I feel like this isn't the real world anymore but some wild west cowboy shoot out!
 

Hey man, I think you might have a viable lawsuit on your hands if you were forced to purchase something.  Did they use a gun or a knife or something?  Was your family being held hostage until you ordered?  If you were forced into ordering something, it's under duress and you aren't liable for any contract you signed.  You should definitely consult a lawyer, I think you have a case!

BTW - just out of curiosity, which vendor(s) forced you to order?


More PR Genius...hollow threats of lawsuits to your customers...priceless...lol

God i hope it is true...BFL and your style are yesterday's news... whether it is true or not at some stage a real company is going to get involved and you PR Insights will be heard no more... Cheesy

They need to reveal who the parent company is...Lets hope it is real  Undecided

Technically they have.  But the only Can Electric people can find is a Canadian electricity company whose physical address is in Iraq.  I certainly can't find any "huge electronics corporation" by that name.  No-one's going to buy it without employee names and proper contact numbers.  Corporate employees are not anonymous.  You should be able to phone Can-Electric and ask to speak to Joe in the technology division.

They should be linking back to the parent company's website and doing everything possible to establish their bona fides.  So far, all they're doing is throwing up huge red flags of the kind which make people wonder if Tom himself is posting all this shit in an attempt to rebrand the project without people knowing he's involved.

Edit.  They are, indeed, claiming to be the Canadian electricity company (not "huge electronics corporation") based in Iraq.

https://www.bitcoinasic.net/index.php?route=information/contact

HardCopy is apparently a trademark of Altera and their fabrication is done by TSMC which does own TSMC Design Technology Canada but if you were associated with TSMC you'd be shouting it from the rooftops and not giving some obscure Iranian contact address and phone number.

All I can say is that this is Bitcoin. I don't believe it until I see six confirmations.

What the f*&$ Shocked this is the strangest thing I've ever been tangentially related to. Who has my ~250 BTC and who the h#$% is Can-Electric and if it is anywhere near for real, will my so-called "pre-order" be honored? I swear this is starting to feel like a strange novel with me as one of the characters.

If I don't get out ASAP, I will fire up Nikki the Bitch and raise all kinds of hell provided, of course, theymos didn't permanently ban her (which I think he did).

Cute gimmick Phinn.


The Can Electric ToS lists NY as the relevant jurisdiction - which is kind of curious for a Canadian company based in Iraq.  It's not so curious if this is some bullshit move to try make people think someone new is in charge of bASIC, though.

Why isn't the Canadian phone number for the real Can Electric listed on the site?  Are they just hoping that no-one's going to phone the Iraq number?

All I can say is that this is Bitcoin. I don't believe it until I see six confirmations.

Great lords of thunder!  What!??? I thought they were NOT going to ask for any pre-orders till a YouTube video of a hashig rig was released.

In promulgating your esoteric cogitations and articulating your superficial sentimentalities, amicable, philosophical and psychological observations, beware of platitudinous ponderosities.
