Spotted: Devinci Spartan Carbon
True, at least until they make bikes that can fly. That'll be really big news.

ANVL Components Forge Saddle - Review
I've found that if a seat works well on one bike it'll typically be just as comfortable on another. The actual positioning of the seat - the angle and where it's clamped to the post - may vary from bike to bike due to the seat tube angle and the reach of the bike, but the comfort level should remain the same.

Proven Here. SB5 Carbon and the San Juan Mountains
It'll be just fine. The link itself only needs to move 4mm up and down. During my time on the bike, which included a number of muddy rides, I didn't encounter any issues. I even refrained from washing the mud off of the linkage after a ride to see what would happen the next time I headed out. The result? Nothing. No creaking, and the link worked without any trouble.

Yeti SB5c - Review
That weight is correct - I verified it on a Park DS-1 scale. The hardware itself doesn't add that much weight, plus it has light wheels, tires, and a 1x drivetrain.

SB5 CARBON x SWITCH INFINITY
There's no damper in the mechanism itself - there's minimal resistance in either direction. The purpose of the rods is to help control the wheel path, and allow the engineers to get the leverage curve they want.

First Ride: Scott's New Gambler and Voltage FR
There might not be a straight seat tube, but it will fit a dropper post.

I was at Santa Cruz factory today for a demo ride, and in the showroom was a new 27.5 Chameleon. Pics? Yeah, check out my misc album. I was told is was not really a secret product or prototype. He told me they would be adding it to their site any day, but I've seen zero info on the web about it.

World Cup DH Bike Check: Brendan Fairclough's Scott Gambler
@tkrug - Good eye. It does appear that the bike is using the new dual chamber system. One valve is to inflate the inner chamber to a high pressure, and the other is for the low pressure outer chamber.
