I'm not sure which was the scarier version, the "joke press release" or the
real blog from Kevin. Coming from a multi-platform committed company's CEO,
it worries me that the joke version simply highlights what was written
between the lines in the company blog.  When we see feature alignment
completed in the mobile relm, my fears will dissipate, but there is
obviously still a one-sided lean.  I am a RunRev fanboy who shouts praises
to my management about LiveCode and all the great and wonderful things it
has done for us, and can/will do for us, but I am immune to the reality
distortion frequency.  ;-)
