Even if they dragged a member out of the gutter behind the nearest (drug) shooting gallery they would clean them up for the picture and not mention where they found the person.
Feel free to do more research. The fact that they have people that have developed and run large scale manufacturing of similar products is encouraging to me.

Your first post sounded (read) as if your sole source was that company profile page.

The "If read on the Internet, it must be true" attitude is widespread and encourages people to not do their own fact checking.

A little research using independent information sources for the people described would confirm the descriptions posted in this case.

= = = =

Let me give an actual example from my own, very recent, experience.

A major insurance company hired a new person for the position of Executive Vice President, Claims.
That event was played up in all the business news publications.
The description the company gave of the man's background was (and still is) correct.

The state agency that tracks such things as customer complaints about insurance companies publishes a lot of statistics . . . .
Guess what, that insurance company tripled their number of customer complaints since the man took over that position.

I would have gone by the things printed in the respected business news publications myself, if circumstances hadn't caused me to look up his 'stats' at the state agency.
I caused myself a lot of grief by not doing my own research earlier.

Perhaps it's not too optimistic to hope for a liquavista based Kindle by the end of 2020.
When did they launch it ? Never seen it before. Apparently they're still looking to hire people so I can't see it being released anytime soon unfortunately

Does amazon have a patent on making electrwetting displays ?

Ah, so, you haven't read the summary CV s yet.

The did even better, they hired one of the patent holders.
Owning the patent holder is even better than owning the patent.

All but one holds Phd degree(s) - you should be able to just search for them by name.

Amazon owns LiquaVista which owns lots of electrowetting patents, assigned by the patent holders when LiquaVista was spun off from Philips in 2006 as a separate company. The technology had been under development for some years by Philips before that.

See this thread from 2006.

They have not yet launched a commercial product, but they appear to be gearing up for mass production of displays.

And we've seen a lot of products announced (and appearing to maybe be in production) and still nothing.

I don't recall seeing any products with Liquavista displays announced. Can you give some examples, please, Jon?

I wasn't mentioning Liquavista based products. Just that we see a lot of products announced say at CES and then we get nothing from there.

I have even seen such outlandish claims as things like JSWolf is going to buy a Kindle.
Better that a person holds their breath, waiting for Liquavista than waiting for that to happen.
