My biggest issue with E17 is that they are doing a terrible job of selling it.

The website has all this pretty, fancy talk about how great it is, but there's no obvious way to "See More...". No links to screenshots, no example code, and no more in-depth description of it.

It's as if they're pretending to be some fly by night operation to hide the fact that they've actually got something good and worthwhile.
