Well, with necessary funding Goldelico would be mass producing a GTA17 this
year which would beat the latest iPhones and alike in quality, user-experience,
functionality and openness.
If we get enough funding, we can even get proper FCC/CE certification and
modify the standards so that a free&open modem can be certified. It is
all just a matter of getting a big enough budget...
Unfortunately, free&open is contradicting big-budget. Like Heisenberg's

In that case, please convince him/her to spend money for more important
things. Like fighting diseases (incl. dictatorship and nationalism) and
rescuing endangered species (like homo sapiens).
