Honestly not sure why the community would spend effort with a very proprietary solution like this where the actual communications components are only available from one company and not open.
There is a perfectly good fully open alternative now to long distance IoT communications. Google: LoRaWAN

I think I will wait until these guys run out of venture Capitol so these are worthless doorstops because their cloud service you are 100% dependent on them to keep running goes bye bye.
Then I can get these for a few pennies each and hack them to talk to my own reverse-engineered server.

Hmm. Tough call. You can get an actual real Raspberry Pi and the Alamode pi Shield which then puts a full arduino on top of the pi...and you have the best of both worlds for actually a little less.
RaspberryPi $35 : https://www.sparkfun.com/products/11546
Alamode $35: http://www.seeedstudio.com/depot/alamode-arduino-compatible-raspberry-pi-plate-p-1285.html
And its still cheaper than this.
If they really wanted this to take off they would have made it cheaper than actually buying the same thing seperately. At $50 I might be a buyer of this. At $77, I am a buyer of a real pi + an arduino bridge shield like the Alamode.
No public wish lists :(
