    Got a Go Pro camera outfit ,and took it back already. It is over rated. Another thing to look

    out for ,they have no help line.There help line like for Best Buy is the store with a few

    people called Go pro experts. So Go Pro sells the camera that been around for a while.

    They re marketed the camera with a lot straps and plastic parts to hold the camera.

    A cheap clear plastic water proof case. The camera whole sale could be replaced

    and make a mark up. The company looks like a shell company only buying the cameras

    and plastic from China. Watch for products that don't have there own help line ,that

    mean no engineers. Just a freight forwarder and middle man. I going to watch there

    stock after New Years.

    Weird, your bad review of the go pro is the first I've heard. Everyone I know that has one loves it. I will check the consumer reports.

    Please do ,check the history of the camera ,I think it a re -do of a camera that been

    around for awhile. Maybe they bought someone out and renamed the camera , added

    all the gadgets and come up with a app. All you guys check it out ,from all angles.

    Strantor ,I put you in a paid to travel post and ask if any other members are being

    paid to travel for work.

    The founder of Go Pro is dancing around having a patent, like I thought he took somebodies

    camera and built a water proof housing around an existing camera,....(I think).

    He said an attorney told him to read a do it your self book.He claims certain trademark

    and copyrights and patents pending. The patent pending is for underwater use for a

    surf board. Google different titles and names ,check out wikipedia. They are pushing

    them to the public thru Best Buy. I don't think the general public will have much luck.

    I am glad I took the camera back ,you get only a 30 day cash return .After 30 days

    you don't know if best buy would back the camera ,for a hundred dollars I got a 3 year

    service contract. A service contract has no value if the camera never work right.

    When you are out shopping ask some questions at Best Buy.

    This is my experience with the camera ,so I am posting on my use of this product.

    This is a new product and I am asking you only to ask questions like you were going

    to buy one. Its a one product company ,leaning on a trade mark. I would like to find out

    who designed the camera and hold some kind of patent. If they have no patent ,sooner

    or later other companies like Sony will get into the market. I saw a ad for a Sony

    product. You have heard of the 90 day wonder ,this latest product was put out

    a few months ago. My interest now is to find out what kind of electronic chip is

    being used and who patented it. More companies can pop up over nite and do

    stock sale with thin air. We always are talking about patents and all the money to

    get them ,here we have reading a do it your self book.

    Right now for Xmas it looks like I will be spending 16 - 18 hours in flight on the 18th plus 8 - 12 hours of layovers coming home from Antalya Turkey with my wife, my new 5 year old daughter, and my wifes dad. :(

    After that I have at least two tractors to fix plus more than likely yards and long driveways full of snow to move at my place my, dads place and my brothers place being the snow blower tractor is one of the two that quit and the primary loader tractor is the other. :rolleyes:

    From there the day after we get home my dad is leaving for a two week winter vacation so I will have about 40 horses and three acres of feed lots to clear snow out of and take care of. :(

    That's intriguing. Is your wife and her father from Turkey? Are you from Turkey? How did you get a new 5y/o daughter? Did you adopt? Is it a stepchild you're just now meeting? Please, tell your story.

    Why do you think he has no patents? He wrote his first patent by himself to save money on lawyers. You don't have to "invent" something new to get a patent, improvements on existing stuff is patentable too.

    Did the "Gopro" take videos/pictures? If it did when used correctly, why did you think it was a bad device? Seen a lot of people use them so they can't be that bad. These are things that can help other people out Loosewire, please expand you review. Give the facts, that we look for in a Loosie report. Please?

    Patents do not necessarily equate to good products, nor does the lack of patents indicate poor products. Good products are about meeting people's needs, and apparently the Go-Pro didn't meet Loosewire's needs. But then, nothing satisfies everybody.
