      @Lori. Save your time with the lawyers and send me your address. I'll send you the $115 and wait the time for a second watch. Looks awesome and can wait to get a product that works as a backer. If I wanted retail I would go to the store and find something inferior for more money.

      Firstly let me say, I want the pebble, I relly, really want the pebble. However, I also want a pebble that works, a pebble that works in the future, a pebble that will change in the future, a pebble I can change in the future. For those reasons I'm happy to wait.

      From the 23rd January onwards I will arrive home each day full of anticipation and excitement that maybe, just maybe a parcel will be waiting for me, When it does arrive I will open it with awe, enthusiasm and childish curiosity. What does this do? How does that work? What does that mean? Dare I actually dip it in the bath?

      For the moaners, complainers and plain old trouble makers, I fear you have spoilt your own enjoyment. By the time you receive your parcel, whatever excitement or joy you would have gained is likely to be subdued and outweighed by your own impatience and ignorance. Me, I'm in for the good times!

      @Lori, great point! But if you sue the Pebble team for misappropriating resources, won't you have to stop stealing olives at your job as a "Sandwich Artist" at Subway?

      Alright Pebble,
      SHOW US A HOME RUN!

    17. Missing_small

      Creator Lawrence Moss on January 9, 2013

      It is clear that "Lori" has no concept of what it takes to be a viable, long term player in any market, and especially the electronic arena where everybody is coming out with the next, "great gadget" that will change the world!

      A trade show as prestigious as the CEI is an excellent forum for the Pebble people to be at.

      All of us are waiting to receive our Pebble watches. As all of us have seen in the video clips presented over the past few months, it does take time (no pun intended), effort, and technical knowledge to insure that the product being put into the market is the best the company can offer- especially when the first ones are introduced. I am sure that all of us will see something in the mail or UPS before too much longer.

      Patience is a more than admirable trait when expecting new products... look at how many iPhone were sold the first time well before they were on the store shelf!

      Creator Gavin Chester on January 9, 2013

      Lori: you are more than free to persue a legal recourse but proving your $115 was used or someone elses for CES would be difficult.

      Long term Pebble will not survive if they only sell the 50K or watches they offered through KS rewards, if you want the platform to grow, and Pebble to exist in 6 month then they need more sales.

      Look at Smartphones, Everyone develops for iOS and to some extent Android as they are the dominant platforms, thats where Pebble need to be, without that mass of users behind it unfortunatly it's just it's a WebOS, nice but niche, no one will develop for it and will be cast aside.

      Creator Donald Hansen Jr. on January 9, 2013

      For the jackasses threatening lawsuits, I've got news for you...

      1) You'll be bound by the laws of the States of Washington and New York, in the United States, and would have to bring suit in one, or both, of those locations.

      2) Anything up to $5,000 in those two states is usually deemed as "small claims". I'm sure you've seen "The People's Court" on TV. It's a fiasco.

      3) It is on the plaintiff to show a reluctance on the defendants' behalf. The burden of proof lies with the plaintiff. Good luck with that. There's 27 updates showing there's progression, and you've got nothing.

      4) Hope you know how to be your own attorney, because most small claims courts will have you present your own case, while the defendant can lawyer up to help present theirs.

      5) The defense doesn't even have to testify. It's all on you.

      @Lori, I also bid you good luck on your already failed notion of a lawsuit. Cheers.

      Will the Livestream just work when it's time, i.e. to the general public, or do I need to set up a Livestream account to actually watch? Thanks.

    25. Fb_profile_picture.small

      Creator Justin Steed on January 9, 2013

      Where do you get the idea the money was supposed to be used for manufacturing.

      I'll say this very carefully: your $115 was a donation to the business so it could get started. that means you were paying for R&D, manufacturing, lawyers, pizza and, yes, marketing and promotions.

      In return you get a watch for something less than the retail price.

      This is not being made exclusively for KS backers: they're trying to make this into a sustainable, successful, profitable business - and that, not you, is their main focus. You'll have to wait until they have a product they can sell to the general public, though you'll be first in line.

      But think about it: you've made it possible. you've watched it happen. You've had the chance to see what exactly goes into to getting something like this off the ground. And all it's cost you it's cost you is the price of a nice meal and a couple of bottles of wine.

      And what have you done with this amazing opportunity? You've complained about it. Go you.

      @ Lori, Good luck with your persuit of your $115.

      Get real, are you going to go to all that bother and waste of time and effort ! Especially when you don’t have a leg to stand on !!!

      By the time you have filled in the forms Pebble will have announced a shipping date.

      Also, Please consider the rather important fact that in order for Pebble to be the Smartwatch of choice it needs developers to make apps and useful software to run on it. Now where would I go to find a developer or fellow tech geek. Mmmmmmmmmmmmm I wonder, Any suggstions ??

      Lori, my expectation is that my money was to be used to bring a product to market... not simply to create a gadget for me to use. Marketing (including trade shows) is part of that process. I get the frustration with the delays... i was hoping to have mine 3 months ago too.

      Creator Lori on January 9, 2013

      I am looking at possibly pursuing the Pebble Team legally. The money from Kickstarter was to be used in manufacturing, so unless they used their own money for CES there might be a case.

      In the end stop wasting time doing CES, waste it making the watch!
