I just wanted to share an interesting story I have. It is about VG-2,me and a certain radar detector company... (This is a true story BTW)
A long while back when Vg-2 was just being introduced not one of the detector companies seemed to have a clue about what to do about it,not a one! They kept introducing models of radar detectors that didn't leak stray microwaves so much but the Vg-2 could still pick all of them up with range to spare!! :? Well I thought about this problem and thought about it and deduced vg-2 had to be a radar detector tuned to other radar detector's gun diode emissions. Why not just turn the tables around and do the same thing to the VG-2!! :wink: 8) Pick up IT'S stray emissions and have a detector sound an alarm! :wink: Well I got quite sick of seeing no progress on the radar detector companies part so I sent the radar detector company a letter about my idea with a simple request..If they used the idea please just send me one of your new detectors with the vg-2 feature..not much to ask right? What 200$ bucks with the free rights to use my idea... Well I guess it was about a year or less and I heard nothing. Not even a response letter thanking me for my suggestion.. :x Then guess what came out?? This radar detector company (introduced) a new detector that did EXACTLY what I wrote to them in the letter about!! :shock: :x This company btw was the FIRST detector company to come up with this feature!! Well needless to say that just blew me away and still does. The only thing that makes me feel better is that this detector company basically went from very good to the (it sucks) catagory and still does..
the moral of the story is DO NOT EVER send any radar detector company info on any new ides you have about radar detection equipment!! Get some money up and patent them and then let them PAY YOU for the rights to use them.... Then sue the crap out of any of them if they try to use them without you permission! :wink: 8)
