WTF?

From their web site... in Radoslav's bio

"Radoslav was founder and CTO of SandForce Inc., the first and *currently* only company that enabled MLC flash memory in enterprise storage"

Apparently Michael had it right above, you can have full marks for honesty, or you can have the investment....

sad really....
