I don't remember reading that but I'll take your word on it and yes, it doesn't make sense to spend that kind of money when Rossi's device is much cheaper. That is providing it works...
And, of course, we don't really know anything about Aussie Guy. He could be a 13-year-old kid living in his parent's basement. I don't think this is the case, but it's foolish to believe anything just because some anonymous person posted something about it on an Internet forum
Absolutely agree. The funny thing is there are people who shall remain nameless that think we are the same person.
The thing is, there are numerous universities and research labs pursuing LENR and Rossi seems to be the comic relief and Aussie guy, WTH? I thought I had read that he bought two cells from Japan that already worked. Why go to Aussie guy instead of just going around him? That or wait for Rossi. The worse thing about Rossi is what he will do to LENR research and funding if it's found out to be a scam. The thing is, I can't see what the scam is and they are usually easy to spot.
We could go with a conspiracy theory that Rossi is funded by big oil to discredit LENR research. That's a joke for those sarcasm impaired folk.
I will take at face value the work that universities are putting out in this field. The problem is that they see something, there's no way everyone is deluded, and it seems that science needs to catch up to explain this phenomena. They publish peer reviewed work that would get torn apart if it didn't have solid results to support their paper.
Blacklight Power is an excellent example. They have PhD's working on the same thing, calling it hydrinos and spending millions. It seems that they get over unity for a while and then it settles back to a normal chemical reaction and I think that is why BLP, although they announced deals with power companies well over a year ago, they still don't have their power plant running their process.

He did make the claim that he had working FPE cells, but he was apparently basing that on demonstrations he saw. He also stated that he was expecting a local University to do independent testing, but he hasn't said anything about that happening yet.
The thing is, I can't see what the scam is and they are usually easy to spot.Funny you should mention Blacklight Power. They have been collecting investor's money, tens-of-millions of it, for a couple of decades, without ever selling a working device. Although they claimed to have customers, non of the customers have acknowledged any such thing (sound familiar?).
Blacklight Power is an excellent example.
I think Blacklight Power is a successful investor scam (or possibly a money-laundering scheme), and that Rossi is attempting to set up a similar operation. And, I expect Rossi, just like Blacklight, to never actually show a working device or a real customer.
Such an operation can go for years, or even decades, without being "busted" if they are careful to pick gullible investors.
