  • Hi Bobby, thanks for the video attempt but I would prefer keeping with the writen reports. Video is too linear and imposes to go through all the video, one can’t chose specific subjects and it’s difficult to pick information going back or forth. And watching the video I had to take notes to be able to keep interesting points to explore deeper. I think some video might be usefull but only as a complement to the writen report. However thanks for your great work, best regards, Jean-Marc

    • Thank you very much for your input! The more user comments we get, the easier it is to know how to move forward. I think that doing nine stories at the same time was way too ambitious and difficult to follow.

  • Bobby, I’ve missed your reports the last few weeks! Thanks so much for your hard and great work to keep me educated about the industry. You are the # 1 resource. Happy 2017

  • Thanks, Bobby.
    Good to learn the new type of your report which is still fruitful to the readers.
    However, I am just wondering maybe not all listeners can fully understand the video if they are not the native speakers in English.
    Anyway, good try and look forward to learning more from you
    Thank you for your effort
