I did not say anything about whom he worked for. Please don't infer more than I have written.. I am not bashing Scott26, nor saying he does not provide useful information, simply that one should take ALL of what he says as gospel truth. Review jmunros followup post 28 in this thread where he explicitly highlighted items that did not occur on the 1M. In the summary, about 60% of Scott26s post came to fruition. This is not to say that the items NEVER were to occur, or that the information was not factually correct at the time it was written. Much of what Scott26 reports is great info, and he appears to be a very good resource for this list.. however... people here also should not hang on every single word and expect that every single item WILL occur. I am sure that MANY design ideas come up as vehicles are being developed, but some make it and some are scrapped in the process.
