    Excellent pitch (any pitch that ends up with Dragons arguing is a good one :) ). Certainly helps that you started with a really good product of course :)

    I always imagined you with a beard for some reason. Great job though, you knew your material, knew your market, and have a great product. I hope you are able to make it all work!

    Update one year later.....

    Str8ts is just smoking in Germany, book sales are going through the roof. The English speaking world is slowly realizing they can't block the spread anymore and are starting to finally consider a new rival. (tough ride) We are going to enter the new year in some major newspapers that will help us spread into the UK, US and Canada. Should be over after that.

    Our websites are averaging over 300 000 hits a month for the puzzles.

    We built from scratch (necessity to please our newspaper clients) www.iLifeTouch.com and it is starting to catch on fire. Amazing!

    This week we are hoping our Flagship app called Lock Your Screen will hit the Mac Store and it definitely will change the way people use their Mac. We are still sweating bullets trying to get it approved even though the app should have no more issues with Apple.

    Also Dragons Breath for IOS is in Review it should make some real noise allowing people to spew fire balls on their iPad and iPhone. Also allows users to set pictures on fire and send and share the burning images. Pretty cool app.

    All in all we anticipated resistance but nothing like what we experienced with the English speaking papers. The Sudoku cult has been very protective of the financial grab, but we are pushing harder then ever.

    great time to be involved in the world of New Media.

    The video (above) was interesting to watch. You did a great job of the pitch. Good luck with it.
