  • That is alot of whining about cost and form factor, but nobody has mentioned the ultimate use case:

    Imagine if every device had this sub $1 SD connector, and you could use just a single $30 IMP to plug in and update the firmware when it was needed. That is very efficient and much cheaper than adding wifi to every device on the planet.

    Also if this cheap connector offered some extra functionality that required constant connection, then end uses can pick and choose how many imps to buy and how many of these extra features they really need in all their devices.

    I think it is a great idea.

No public wish lists :(
