Firstly, thanks so much wiredsport for the scoop. You guys are great and always fast to answer any questions I have.
Secondly, I don't mind it if these new Flow's have been 'influenced' by designs like the Cinch. If the result is a better design and a better product, I applaud them. Improving on other peoples design is how business works, after all, the iPod wasn't the first digital hard drive music player, or even close to it.
I really like the simplicity of this Flow design, and like all simple designs, it is amazing no one came up with it earlier. Of course we wont know how well it works until they get tested, but I hope they perform as well as look like they might. I also think that new strap design looks great.
I love it when companies innovate with (what looks like)great new ideas being made into products. Well done Flow, (and well done wiredsport).
