True, but it could be other things as well. I wasn't saying my thoughts on the matter were the sole reason just what the possibilities could be. Could be many other reasons or technical issues that we aren't made privy to.
The fact that there Tahiti chips came first, and have been out longer and we haven't seen it means one of two things. Either they don't want to, or can't.

If they could put two cayman chips on one card, they can put two Tahiti chips on one card.

I would rather believe and find god doesn't exist than to not believe and find that he does.
