Hmm... so Ford just plopped down $100 million on spin.

I still don't understand what investors see in these scooter companies. I think they're going to be huge money losers. They have so many problems. Safety not being the least of them. They are just inviting huge lawsuits.

In light of that I thought it was a little ironic when the head of Spin said being linked to Ford brings brand recognition and Ford's reputation for "reliability and safety". So, that's what they're going to hang their safety hat on? The reputation of a company that makes a much safer product than scooters could ever be!

Really looking forward to seeing how all this plays out.

I was just at Venice Beach last week and almost got hit by motor-scooters four times; and I was only there for about an hour. What is Ford thinking here?!
