Next in the queue: Meredith Perry.

They've been very quiet lately. Must be all heads down gearing up for mass production, they have been for years even though they don't have anything to produce. :horse:
CML+  That took much longer than I thought it would.

Why don't you post a pic of yourself so we can all have a good laugh at your facial features.
Classy insults can be reserved for classy people, 1.4 Billion dollar fraudsters not so much.
The problem with that is it isn't your choice to make. Classy insults typically are made by classy people. That's why they are classy. Just holding someone's features up for ridicule is neither a classy insult or the sort of thing classy people do.

Criticising a "1.4 billion dollar fraudster" should be easily done without needing to resort to personal attacks.
It appears her unusual eyes are just on the cover photo in Forbes magazine.  Seeing additional live video of her, her eyes look fine.
They must have photoshopped that image as if it were a cover on a latest fashion magazine, but, took it way too far.
I should have realized that the image was manipulated.  This stupid image editing on photos has got to stop, but, unfortunately most likely wont.

I don't know if Meredith is really in the same boat here. While she does have an extremely misguided faith in her "invention" I don't know that her subsequent activities have ever reached the point where you would call them fraud. Her enthusiasm at painting pictures of where her technology will go is just the same as any startup really.

If she was showing investors a phone that was supposedly charging wirelessly while actually concealing a cable in her sleeve, that would be fraud and more akin to what Elizabeth was guilty of.

does her name make anyone else laugh/.
Not quite, but her eyes freak me out.  Sorta like a freaky partial 50% the way to a Japanese drawn animated character with huge wide open round eyes.
I always found her kinda weird looking — but it could be just the choice of bad hair and her ridiculous “I’m imitating Steve Jobs” attire.

A remnant piece of Theranos, picked up by a patent troll...

Simple phrase to remember when seeing some incredible 'new' tech with phenominal claims when you are not an expert in the field, or maybe even if you are, the less you know the more you believe.
DC coupling is the devils work!!
