      Ohh yes, I just read the news. Seems like Intel got it. Curious to know the price.

    My friend works there and OP is right.
    They were trying to raise money and the product wasn’t going anywhere apparently.

    I don’t think the deal price is good.

    Very bad, such a promising company with such experienced founders.
