They're craftsmanship building really quality products and that's something you don't really see very often these days -- you guys and they're an inspiration to companies like ours to Sino -- you guys on other platforms -- on android that we are out at -- somewhere on iPhone and -- as that's what I thought I was making sure is that when -- coming up -- there wasn't just all about.
