I'll settle for never again being asked if I can find pictures of donkey wearing headphones on a surfboard to create a post that will go viral.

For a very small fee, I can provide you pictures of anything wearing headphones, riding anything. Just give me a shout.

Howdy team! First up: congrats on the acquisition of the Home Tech Network!

I wanted to drop you a quick note and let you know what a great site Innerfidelity is for the headphone community. It is hands down one of the best places for headphone information, reviews, suggestions, and constructive dialog/comments from users. Tyll, Jana, joker, and the rest of the crew present information in a professional and personal manner. The review methodology of using both data and experience to quantify findings is unmatched. There's several good sites out there for headphones n associated gear, however Innerfidelity is far and away my favorite.

Best Regards and best of luck with your new endeavors.

Peace .n. Living in Stereo

Tyll...will your new affiliation be going public? Amazon and Google (Alphabet) and Alibaba will squash Apple and remove it from the market largely. Look for Apple to continue trying to sell phones, and not much else, and fail to compete with these much more powerfully robust companies , which have vastly outstripped Apple in growth lately. The first company to reach 1 trillion dollar stock most surely will not be Apple, but probably Amazon, then Google, then Alibaba, which has the most growth potential of all of these.

Look to other companies to take over software, and hardware offerings and developments over the stalling Apple company. I think you will see headphones, speakers, and all the content of internet music being provided by Google, or Amazon, which will eat up the competition, as it already is. I'm really tired of Apple anyway. They never did anything to improve audio and music reproduction anyway.
