On Friday, Cricut released information about their new product, the Gypsy. We discussed it here on PCC. Since then, the message boards and blogs have been ablaze with speculation about whether or not the Gypsy would erase your carts when downloading them. Unthinkable!
Yesterday, ProvoCraft sent out some emails direct to some of their top bloggers, users, etc saying:
There has been plenty of buzz about our recent campaign for a new product we are getting ready to release. IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m sure youÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve already seen www.roguegypsies.com and have heard the rumbling. I wanted to give you a heads up that IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m posting clarification on one issue in particular. Many have speculated that using a cartridge with Gypsy will wipe the content from the Cricut Cartridge. This is not the case. People that buy Gypsy will be able to use any of their cartridges with your Gypsy OR any Cricut machine.
More details on exactly how the Gypsy works will be released in the near future but I wanted to be sure you knew that the cartridges are not erased.
I'm glad the issue is put "to rest" (well, sort of)! We all look forward to more details later this month!
