Have a question?
I moved and changed my adress. Plz update
@manuel Thanks for your efforts. This whole project absolutely stinks.
Well, as he put it, they take over the project two months ago and are rushing to put it on the market. That's all I know so far.
So @manuel that's another 45 days before production begins, at least?
Why do they lie to us time and time again?
Fed up with the no-communication of our favorite team, I've had a direct chat with mr Richard Chiang, the eccentric man present in the last videos. Here's what he wrote : "Le Slide went trough design engineer process and is ready for tooling, in 45 days based on estimate, maybe sooner. I'll keep you posted."
Nearly two months now since the last update.
Be open with us. Tell us what is happening...
Financial issues? Fabrication issues? Component sourcing problems?
Is the MacOS compatibility issue resolved yet?
REAL information, PLEASE.
My address and computer have changed since I backed this two and half years ago. Please update my address and screen size.
Next update will have to be the delivery date.
I would like a full refund for my pledge back in Dec 2015
You don't have any rights to be claimed. Even if they don't deliver There is nothing you can do. That is kickstarter so get over it.
"Project Creators are required to fulfill all rewards of their successful fundraising campaigns or refund any Backer whose reward they do not or cannot fulfill."
I demand a full refund for my pledge amount.
Yet another week slides by.
AN UPDATE PLEASE.
My address and my computer will change, can I please update my address and the size of my screens?
Man still no email to confirm the size / shipping information?
only 2 month left till i should have it in my hands ( again after your timeline...)
Hey muppets, how about an update on when you're shipping, now you've been in production for a month!
How can I change my delivery address?
I waited so long for this product. I currently own the latest Surface Pro. Any idea is this product will work with Surface Pro. The weight of the product is a concern. Anyone has any suggestions since the owners still fail to respond to the backers.
Oh come on! Invoking your rights has been used on other projects and it achieves NOTHING and just makes it difficult to find real comments! In fact, I believe it’s based on outdated T&Cs. You have NO rights other than you can take them to court based on the T&Cs on KS for project owners. Good luck with that. You’ll need more money than the value of the product.
Wait, as far as I know, we've had at least half a dozen delivery dates so far...
@Tony I really feel for you - the original kickstarter was nothing short of a plain lie and I hope the creators feel a twinge of guilt for stealing your money and possibly hindering your studies whilst they fiddle with creating the "perfect" product.
When I ordered this, I planned to use it for college. I am graduating this month and the product doesn't even have an actual delivery date yet.
No updates, no delivery schedule, no integrity.
Patience has expired as has the usefulness of this product and viability with todays Macbook's.
Even their online chat is a lie, claims to be online and will reply in a few moments but nothing.
did you notice in most of the pictures our @creator assholes always keep their hands in their pockets?
"The subconscious mind, which thinks in a primitive way, believes that putting your hands in your pockets is a good way to hide and to avoid the situation.
Putting the hands in pocket is sometimes associated with lying"
On their video they say that 3 years ago they had just a "white paper" in front of them, so they agree that the whole campaign was a complete fraud and they didnt have shit...
Go to know to get you to court, liars
According to latest Facebook update, creators have time to show off at MSI HQ. Great!!
From the video: What is slide&joy? A: it's a scam made in kickstarter
When an update lacks details, it’s often because they won’t reveal the truth, which would break the illusion they’re trying to portray.
In many of their updates, it’s the lack of their product visibility which strikes me most. It’s the reason why they exist, yet they hide it. When you’re so close to production (if you believe them), I would be showing the production/pre-production model at every chance, but they don’t.
Someone posted on FB, a chat with their website person and was asked if it was still in development or production. They said both!! How can you be both?
So as someone else mentioned, this is either a scam or one of the worst run campaigns ever! The lack of detail in their updates, the lack of answers to justified questions and lack of visibility of the whole process to apparently production, raises many more questions than it answers. Based on this, I’ll be surprised if it works as advertised. It’s a shame.
All that stuff about product secrecy - and you volunteer to show the product to a CEO of Lenovo (there at least 90 according to LinkedIn, odd the Chinese guy didn't mention his actual name).
And when were the clips used in the video filmed? Cos I strongly suspect it was all captured as part of your original trip and you're just stringing us along and posting content-free updates to keep KS off your back.
I went to the web page mentioned in the comments. Quite slick and convincing. If I was not a backer three years ago, I would find it quite enticing.
I also noticed that there is no mention anywhere on the page about the delivery date (Or the High Sierra issue, of course).
I went through the order process and stopped just short of paying for a new order trying to find out what the delivery date would be. There was no mention that this is essentially vapourware. Wow, guys. If this is not a scam, then it is a shady business practice for sure - keeping crucial information from consumers (i.e. the product that they are buying does not currently exist).
Wow, more travel & big shot meeting. It's obvious that you have forgotten your backers who gave you funding in good faith for a product. When will you deliver, we have been more than patient with you!
Still no responses to the below concerns.
Its a neverending story
Will this ever ship??
Come on @creators, you're got a product that's about to go in to production, and a documented issue with OSX.
Can you offer some reassurance that LeSlide will work with High Sierra?
How are you going to support this now that now that USB has been removed.
Lets hope they don't start to work on that... that would be another 6-12 month delay for that alone to start to work on ...
The deadlines are maybe one of your biggest gripes, but not mine. Mine are the lies and no communication.
They don't want the product infos to go somewhere? at least try to make them as Backer only updates. If they get repostet everywhere ok, tell the backers in an update that is the reason for no more tech updates. But that wasn't the problem here.
Every question was ignored time and time again.
We still don't have answers about the single screen version, that they haven't mentioned in like over a year, what happend to the custom designs etc.
More info on the DisplayLink issue: https://www.displaylink.org/forum/showpost.php…
@Jackie I think it's because they are on LeSlipperySlope
You may have read recently about the latest release of MacOS breaking some use-your-ipad-as-a-second-monitor apps. What has been less widely reported is that it has also broken DisplayLink's drivers - DisplayLink is the technology on which this KS is based. Will it be fixed before they ship? Let's hope so...
I've heard of Kickstarter Projects ideas getting stolen and mass produced faster than the original before like in : https://petapixel.com/2016/10/21/popular-selfie-stick-kickstarter-copied-undercut-china-record-time/
Keeping your production under wraps could help you prevent that, but for us, one of the biggest gripes we have with this project is simply the frequent deadlines that were missed again and again. I sincerely hope you can meet it this time.
Love how they're moving away from SlidenJoy to LeSlide. Probably because SlideNJoy has such a bad name.
How about a video of the fully working product!
Dear "Le Slide" what about "Le Ship Date"?
the new Video is great!
Still not showing anything functional!
AND: PLUS(!) 4 (in words: FOUR) Months , then well have the product!
