    I love SF but sometimes the pricing baffles me. The BMP180 sensor is $4.95, breakout board with sensor is $9.95 which isn’t too crazy, but toss in a disposable plastic shell and the price goes up to $21..?

    You mean I can’t make buggy presentations with this product?

    What is the incentive of using this over the Yun?

    Clearly, the secret to Shawn’s energy is the purple shirt. I bet if you hook up a few Pelletier thermal pads in between his body and the shirt, you would generate a small amount of current. That won’t be too efficient thought.. I suppose you could douse him in a lead lined tub of water and use the steam generated to turn a turbine to generate electricity. All of these ideas are legit! I will accept $50k in sparkfun credit or direct access to Shawn’s energy for my tesla coil.

    It would be really cool if there was a hole on the board large enough to screw the external antenna to - no need for a second mounting bracket

    Why is brown $0.50 more?

    I’ll second this. Sparkfun must have also struck a deal with the government to obtain only THE shiniest of quarters. I bet they keep that quarter in a vault. Not to protect it from theft but to protect the world from it’s shine.

    Yeah, that’s if they were going by their own retail prices. Most likely, they ordered the components wholesale for pennies on the dollar. I really love sparkfun, I know a young business isn’t easy to maintain, but some times I disagree with their pricing policies.

    This.. erm… Seems a little expensive for what it is.

    Edit: SF just reduced the price from $39 to $29. I think that is ~much~ more reasonable. Thanks SF!
