What A Bad Way To Start My Day

Why the eff' do people put up websites like this when there is no actual company and product to back it up? Don't they know how mean it is to get people's hopes up? They made me cry.

I really thought I had found finally found the answer this time. They even claim to be based in Austin. But the very nice man who has the phone number listed on the website has never heard of them.

I'll keep trying to get in touch with them, but I have a feeling it's going to be another time-wasting dead end. Too bad. This is such an elegant solution.

From http://www.grohome.com/products.php:
