Glad to hear that Marketplace did a test on Mozi-Q. I have challenged the makers of this garbage to test their product in a manner similar to Consumer Reports, which sounds like what Marketplace did. Wish they’d had a n>1 though!
As to the Dragon’s Den funding for their “product”, where did you get your info that it was pulled? I’d love to read more about it.
Thanks for the great show!
