I wouldn't ask if it was.

Of course. I'm no genius but I'm not a total maroon. 

Neither am I a polymath. I know exactly nothing about the market or the technology. It has never caught my attention or imagination (aside from the speculative fiction its existence enables). 

Why do you, jb, care about competition for this particular company? Are you interested in freezing yourself and want improved tech/cheaper prices? Is there something especially useful about the technology they are using/developing besides using it to freeze people's heads?  Etc?

It struck me that if there is little/no competition at this point, perhaps there is no compelling reason for it. Or a good reason for its absence. Perhaps not an irrelevant market or technology but nearly so?

I don't know so I ask. You seemed to know so I hoped for a less condescending response.  ;-)
