Re: Hmm...

I didn't mean ARM specifically. As you say they are just providing a *paid* service to the would be IoT vendors of the world. Attempting to capitalize on a new market? Kudos to them in that regard. It's the market's business model and ultimately the vendors selling kit to consumers I don't agree with. Not only do we not own the software or the content, but if they could have their way they'd own all our content/data as well. Oh, right most EULA's for online services sign our rights to those away. In the end the only thing we own is some hardware that is completely bricked if we don't want to use their services.
