This exchange took place during CC. What do you guys think of it? No need for clowns to respond.
Okay. And our next question comes from [Rick Naff] of Merrill Lynch. Mr. Naff, your line is open.
I have a question, I tried to order an S600 Mercedes and pick it up overseas and I went to a dealer in Massachusetts, the leading one in New England and the person who was in-charge of this had told me that the SPD-SmartGlass would not be available in the 2015 cars.
That’s not correct. The dealer ordering guys all have it available later this year.
Well, he said that they got a memo from Daimler in Germany three weeks ago and that they said specifically that this has been cancelled. I checked with another dealer in Florida and he said the same thing. They said Mercedes have moved up the date for delivery to 2015 to April from the third quarter and the supplier could meet the demand, so they sent the memo out to the dealers. They said it'll still be available in the SL and the SLK but not in the S600 and he said it’s most likely that he never sees memos that come out with a rescinded, but it could happen this time. And I have been concerned because I have owned the stock for three years and I wanted to pick a S600, so…
Well, it’s kind of strange because I was in [indiscernible] where the Mercedes development work is all going on four days ago, five days ago and it wasn’t cancelled there. So I’m not really sure what you’re saying but coming out of Germany, they’re not seeing anything like that. So, I’m not sure the information is valid.
Okay. Well, I talked to Mercedes because they sent blast email obviously because I’ve checked with a few dealers.
Like I said I was actually at Mercedes on Thursday and -- this past Thursday and it hasn’t been cancelled.
Okay. Thank you."
“…the finalists for this year’s Crystal Cabin Awards are providing a good overview of what passengers can expect to see on board very soon. Again and again it comes down to the burning question: how can an increase in passenger comfort be combined with an increase in efficiency for flight operations? This was also a significant criterium for the 24-person International Judging Panel, including amongst its members numerous representatives of airlines and all the major aircraft manufacturers.... For the eighth time, the finalists and winners in the seven award categories are being presented at the ‘Aircraft Interiors Expo,’ a trade fair for aircraft cabins, being held in Hamburg from 8 to 10 April this year.”

"The S-Class Coupé features a panoramic roof extending over two-thirds of the entire vehicle roof; with a surface area of around 1.32 m2, it appears almost 150 percent larger than on the predecessor model. MAGIC SKY CONTROL makes it possible to switch the transparency of the roof at the push of a button, from light to dark. When light, the roof is almost completely transparent and allows an open-air experience, even in the coldest weather. When dark, light transmission i.e. the proportion of outside light that is allowed through into the interior, is reduced to less than 1% and thus effectively diminishes heating up of the vehicle. In addition, it is possible to shade the interior completely by means of a roller blind."
