    While likely true this clashes with what Trevor wrote Paul told him he had written to Steve Jobs.

    There are many. The key in finding Varisys was their experience wih the PA6T specifically.

    Andreas, do you have any references for these statements?
    Without contact Paul directly, which I would not do as it would be inappropriate to quiz him about statements a business associate made, I cannot verify them.

    But the limited scope of A-eon's production does make them seem questionable and self aggrandizing.

    Further, would Steve Jobs really intervene in order to allow Varisys to obtain the kind of purchase amounts that are usually covered by the order minimums of manufacturers like NXP?

    The more I look at it, the more A-eon looks not like a vanity project, but a way of inflating Trevor's reputation.
