  • News - SparkFun Gets a Subpoena | about 2 years ago

    I just gained a whole new level of respect for SparkFun. They’ve always been quick to ship and respond to dumb emails, but to have the fortitude to DO THE RIGHT THING in the face of a pretty intimidating subpoena goes above and beyond. I can only imagine that any other company (even those that “do no evil”) would have immediately caved to the full demands of law enforcement, without a thought for customer privacy / constitutional rights, and surely wouldn’t have even imagined making the request public.

    You guys (in the sense that includes both genders, like ‘ustedes’) rock.

  • Product BOB-10344 | about 2 years ago

    GREAT product. I inadvertently hooked it up to 5v on my Arduino UNO and found it worked fine with the library linked above (with a couple changes for Arduino 1.0 headers), except the RDS stuff.

    So, to try to debug it, I added a print(registers[RDSD]) inside the main loop, and apparently that gave it just enough delay to work perfectly – so if you’re getting nothing from it, maybe try tweaking the delays.

    But, you probably don’t want to roll the dice and see if you are so lucky with 5v.

No public wish lists :(
