  • No problem. That upgrade is a one-time cost that upgrades the web service, but it is not a subscription.

  • Not sure where you pulled the pricing for ioBridge, but we have a similar differentiation between developer and manufacturer. Anything bought off-the-self is free for life. For manufacturers they host with us or host on their own. The costs are much lower than a 100/yr. One instance of ioBridge supports up to a million devices under certain bandwidth usage, so it can be pennies or fractions of pennies per year per device. Looks like there is some overlap here, maybe some synergy down the line would be a good step for creating cloud-connected devices. Otherwise we will have little silos of devices and everything will still be disjointed, just more e-waste, and customers will stop adopting the technology.

  • Thanks to everyone that participated in the Internet of Things Contest. And, thanks to the SparkFun team...We have awarded 20 gift certificates today and received 20 diverse projects hopefully highlighting our unique features.
    We will be blogging about the projects on the ThingSpeak community site: http://community.thingspeak.com/
    (Now go spend some of those winnings on new SparkFun gear...)

No public wish lists :(
