Update #15

latest update

Hi Everyone!

Sorry for the delayed update- As per our last update we had to make a new extrusion tool for the aluminum ring. We waited 3 weeks for our existing tool maker to provide samples from the new tool, only to learn the problem had not been fixed. We decided not to gamble once again and instead made the rings at a local CNC shop here in L.A at a very high cost. We shipped these to our manufacturer to arrive mid next week. Once received they need to be powder coated and assembled.

Unfortunately we can’t afford to airfreight Podi-m after producing the new rings here and shipping them to our vendor. Instead we have to ship everything via ocean freight. All this will put Podi-m in our hands September 20th and in the mail to you by Monday September 23th. We apologize again for all the delays and thank you for your support to make our dream possible.

      Hi, Can we have a update please, you did say ( you have to ship everything via ocean freight. All this will put Podi-m in our hands September 20th and in the mail to you by Monday September 23th. We apologize again for all the delays and thank you for your support to make our dream possible )

      So just before the 20th of September you would have known if the Podi-m would be late or not ! & on the posting date or a couple of days later you would either send us kickstarters a update on kickstarter or send a email telling us when we are due to receive our Podi-m.

      But still no update or email even Dominic said ( THE NEW IPHONE 5S HAS BEEN RELEASED!!!!! BEFORE THIS DOCK, STILL WAITING, LIKE I SAID "THE IPHONE 6 WILL COME OUT BEFORE THIS DOCK, THERE NOW IS COUNTLESS BETTER DOCKS ON THE MARKET. ) So with the lack of comms & poor direction leaves to say Please give a full refund as I have no longer need Podi-m Please give a full refund. $99.99 thank you.

      Thank you for the update Laine. I look forward to seeing the final product. It would do a lot to limit bad feelings among this group, who should be some of your best supporters, if you shared information at the same time, or nearly so, as you get it. i.e. - first dock is coated and assembled, status updates on completion percentage, update on shipping to you, update on boxing, update on shipping to backers. Etc etc.

      Laine, I do hope you find a solution! I like and love this dock. Wishing you the best.

      @Shane, @Andrew, I understand your frustrations but I think you misunderstood the way a kickstarter project develops and it's goals. Perhaps you could head on Amazon next time you want a low risk, mass produced gift for your very important self?

      Another update, another sob story, another non-delivery. I want my money back. Go raise more funds for this non-existent product on that other website you're trying to hawk your vapor ware on.

      REFUND. NOW.

      Hi Andrew the $30 shipping you paid covers shipping from Los Angeles to your house, not part of getting the product from our manufacturer in Asia to the US. Producing Podi-m in the US would be great however it would more than triple the retail cost giving us zero chance at producing this product.

      Ok so you have make a new extrusion tool for the aluminum ring. You waited 3 weeks for your existing tool maker to provide samples from the new tool, only to learn the problem had NOT been fixed. So you decided not to gamble once again and instead made the rings at a local CNC shop here in L.A at a very high cost. I told you that it needed to made in USA! months ago. Now you are telling us its the existing tool makers fault. Not yours...

      Now you are telling us that you can’t afford to airfreight Podi-m after producing the new rings here and shipping them to our vendor. Instead you are going to ship everything via ocean freight.

      Stop right there I have paid $30.00 dollars in shipping and if you fall short that's your problem not mine. If you gamble your product buy trying to get cheaper tooling and loose money due to poor direction and poor quality then you have to take the loss. Your loss should not effect your backers

      If you are have the work done in L.A should it should only take 3/4 days to sort out and 1/2 days to put in the post. I do think we are getting told only half of what's going on. So the backers have to take the short fall and maybe get it in November or a year later...... Sort it out your having a laugh.
