I've always tried to be open, up-front, and straightforward in these Information Letters. I'll continue that herein. I am not aware of any euphemisms, dissembling, or ``cover stories'' in any of the material in this Letter. Since some feel moved to weave intricate stories of intrigue around any change that occurs, such protestations may be wasted, but if you've come to believe what I say, believe me when I tell you that this is the straight stuff. The only punches I pull are to honour nondisclosure agreements with manufacturers regarding projects underway, and new product strategy information I don't want to make publicly available.
