    Hah. "...the Beatles of the type world..." Sad such a dynamic duo had to end this way.

    I think this was because one of them felt cheated.

    It seems Frere-Jones at least got something for all his hard work.

    Someone definitely felt cheated. This all started because Frere-Jones felt like he was scammed.

    He was scammed, all right -- there was some definitely shady stuff going on. This was a big enough deal that it even got coverage in the mainstream media. I wonder what the terms were -- hopefully F-J came out OK.

    Both have moved on. It's for the best. Looking forward to seeing what each of them can do next.
