News to me, and kinda sad actually. I always felt true innovation was the product of competition amongst a multitude of minds. Once a large company begins to absorb those minds the competitive nature begins to fade, radical ideas end up locked in a closet, and the absorbing companies ideas and ideals replace what were once free thinkers.
Hopefully these companies are allowed some operating independence. I like Kyosho But that doesn't mean I want them owning/operating everything I buy.
It slows down innovation.
