We are always interested and also just a little proud to see our products in use by our customers. It helps us to learn what we have done right, see what can be improved and gives us fresh ideas for new products.

Of course, any comments, positive or negative, are welcome too.

In this article, we get a glimpse at the workspace of Anang. He had this to say about the AKiTiO Thunder Dock, "Technology done right. Thanks AKiTiO for including two eSATA ports on your Thunderbolt dock".
