  • I worry about phoning home if the company goes offline. When phoning home, sniff the packets. I wonder if mother China is sending exactly the same authorization packets back to the device every time? If so it should not be terribly difficult to spoof the DNS on your own network and set up a small server to provide the necessary answer to turn on the machine.

  • SparkFun, this is off topic but how do you do FCC lab testing on your designs with low runs? Do you analyze them in house with a dedicated lab or what? Seems like that would make low runs prohibitively expensive and a loss leader.

No public wish lists :(
