LifePatch; Racking up the Lies

The Marker reports:
Yet another lie was revealed, attributed to the Safe Sky "LifePatch" company. Yesterday, the company's founders announced to the media that they will soon be starting clinical trials with their revolutionary "Heart Attack Detection" patch at the Hadassah Hospital in Jerusalem, and that Hadassah Hospital's General Manager, Professor Shlomo Mor Yosef has given the green light for the hospital to start a pilot with 100 of the patches.

However, Hadassah Hospital today outright rejected the story, "No one approached Professor Mor Yosef, and he did not approve any pilot", stated Ron Kromer, the manager of media communications and press interaction at Hadassah. Kromer told "The Marker", "Professor Mor Yosef doesn't even have the authority by himself to approve a clinical trial. Clinical trials are only approved after a long process of receiving approvals, providing scientific documentation, and of course, certification from the Helsinki Committee (which authorizes clinical trials on humans.)
Additionally the MSI company, which is allegedly buying 20% of SafeSky claims they have never heard of SafeSky, and they have zero intention of buying it.


There is no evidence of SafeSky's claim that Life Keeper has FDA approval.

SafeSky was only registered as a company two weeks ago.

MSI finance department customer relations manager Jhih-Jhuang Chang told "Globes" today, "I have never heard of this company. We are considering what steps to take. The matter is being handled by our legal department.

The Taiwanese company, Micro-Star International, which is supposedly paying $370 million for 37% of the Life Keeper heart monitor patch, said it knows nothing of any such deal. Its representatives never came to Israel to discuss such an agreement. The senior management of SafeSky, the Israeli firm, also never met with the Taiwanese firm, and all the contacts were conducted only via fax and e-mail.
Riiiiight. A $370 million dollar deal is conducted only through email and fax?

Wherever I am, my blog turns towards Eretz Yisrael טובה הארץ מאד מאד

Jameel is always telling us the wonders of living in Eretz Yisrael. And we all agree, but let's put our words and thoughts into action:

Aliyah Stimulus

and Aliyah Impetus

Why? Why make up such a story? WHY!?! Until I see a motive, I'm going with this -

NewsGeek: You tell me, why would MSI, the company that was allegedly going to buy this company, state, " "I have never heard of this company. We are considering what steps to take. The matter is being handled by our legal department."

Why would any company in its right mind do this entire deal based on email and fax communications, having NEVER met any representative from "Safe Sky" in real life -- a 360 MILLION DOLLAR DEAL?!


And "Safe Sky" was only registered as a company TWO WEEKS AGO?

Tell me, you honestly think that Israeltech's take on the story is simply the narrow mindedness of the media? (Haaretz, JPost, YNET, The Marker, Globes, etc..)

Perhaps you need a reality check...

Isn't this newzgeek guy the tech columnist for Jpost?

Why make up such a story? Why would people in the world lie, steal, cheat? Why would Bernie Madoff fleece billions of dollars from old people and charities? Do you seriously doubt that people are capable of fraud?

The debacle continues; Arik Klein tried to convince a law firm that Johnson and Johnson was about to invest in SkyLife.

They can test it out on Arik Sharon. He was stupid enough to listen to his top notch doctors.

Besides, the whole idea was to put politicians and their hangers-on, to work at top paying jobs.

You liked it better when Mofaz had his cohorts raiding El Al?

Here? What's the harm? Everybody dies.

This reminds me of an old joke. Where a cardiologist was examining his male patient, when he suggested to him, "it would be better for his heart" if he had sex with his wife, regularly. To this, the patient replied: "please tell my wife."

So, the doctor did.

Afterwards? The wife said "you'll die soon." (Because she wasn't going along with the "more sex" idea at all.)

How about a device which will tell a man's wife, that he'll be ready in half an hour?

Carol, it helps when commenting to stay on topic. What does a hi tech fraud have to do with Ariel Sharon and the sex life of a random middle aged married couple?

My favorite part of this fraud: They paid one guy 1000 dollars to develop the patch software. As if this type of software is routinely developed by one person for a measly sum of $1000. These people have to seriously be smoking some high quality crack to think that no one would wise up to this thing.

Abbi: What I think is hilarious is that if the software guy was such a genius -- why did he only charge 1000 dollars? Doesn't sound very smart to me...

Gee a Moron said...

and if the software geek is so removed from the real world as to accept $1K I don't want his software anywhere near my body. I'm thinking that it might be a genius's algorithm but if it cannot deal with real-world faults...

Of course since I'm 99.99999% certain that this is a scam then there is no software genius.
