After the October 28 megawatt E-cat test, there has not been much information of interest delivered from Rossi. However, the blogosphere is still engaged in speculations about E-Cat. (Check outecatnews.netfor example.) One of the blogs most infiltrated with Andrea Rossi is ecatreport.com that boosts up Rossi´s statements about the development of the E-Cat. Today E-Catreport writes thatE-Cat Set To Rule The Market In 2012,and that "by next year the world market will be filled with 1 million units of 10 kW household E-Cats".
Yup. One million(!) (Well, we´ll see how many that really turn out to be.)
One can conclude that the E-Catreport contains hardly any critical thoughts or critical information about the validity of Andrea Rossi´s statements, but rather put up cheerful headlines like ECat Deviates From All Scientific Theories. But That’s Fine. (Well, we´ll see how "fine" that really turn out to be.)
Why the joyful and cheerful approach at E-Catreport, then? One reason for this might be that one of the editors (according to this YouTube-clip) of E-Catreport, Magnus Holm, also is engaged in the company Hydrofusion that runs the website ecat.com- "The Official Website of Andrea Rossi’s Energy Catalyzer" As Andrea Rossi now collects pre-orders for his E-Cats, Hydrofusion aims to be a part of the business. Magnus Holm was interviewed in Ny Teknik November 18, where he explains that “The aim is to be a portal to all stakeholders regarding the E-cat. In particular, we want to be as officially linked to Rossi as possible in order to capture as much commercial interest as possible through Ecat.com.”
"NyT: You have already been accused of contributing to fraud. What is your comment?
Holm: “We are not engaged in any deception, and I do not think Rossi is engaged in any fraud either. If it would turn out that it does not work, in spite of everything, I would think it is about self-deception. I believe it works.”
So if you feel that E-Catreport.com is engaged in any "deception", you are completely wrong. It´s "self-deception"!
Antonio Turiel is a physicist working at the institute for marine sciences in Barcelona (CSIC) and he keeps the blog "The Oil Crash," (in Spanish). Here, he examines the story of the E-Cat with a well needed critical view.
On Wednesday the Greek company Defkalion showed prototype drawings and specifications of the heating unit Hyperion, potentially competing with Andrea Rossi’s ‘E-cat’. However, no verification of the technology was presented. No big surprises, in other words.
