Ben Kaufman created a new forum topic The Sale Of GE Appliances
I shared this note with our team this morning ---------------- Good Morning Everyone, GE has formally announced the sale of their century old Appliance business to Electrolux. The transaction is expected not to close until next year. I want you to know that this in no way affects our business, plans, or relationship with GE. All of our contracts and commitments come from GE Corporate, specifically to shield us from events like this. GE will continue to be a key partner of ours, and will continue to invest in our community and their inventions. If anything, this transaction increases the importance of our role in shaping the GE brand on a go forward basis. Reach out to me if you have any questions. I have been very close to the process and can answer any concerns you may have. Thanks, Ben ------------ As always, i can be reached at ben @ quirky dot com

Ben Kaufman replied to a forum topic This looks just like Branch! Clever Curtain AS SEEN ON TV Just launched!!!!

I've emailed the CEO of Allstar to find out what is going on.

He's been friendly to Quirky in the past, so i'd find it weird if they were actually behind this. Nonetheless, this will be resolved one way or another.

Charlie is on the case as well!

We'll fight hard to protect you, as always.

Clinton, i promise you all of the above is the case... but will become even more so (and fully transparent) by the end of this year.

If not, you have full right to poop on me incessantly.
