Re: Pebble

To be fair, they did keep the servers up for six months longer than they originally planned, and allowed one of the original Pebble devs to write a final update that would allow the app to be pointed at different servers.

Yes, it would have been nice if they'd kept making Pebbles, and made them better, but they were surprisingly cooperative considering they had no obligation or financial interest in doing so.

Now, if only someone would make another similar smart watch, that doesn't bother with any of the fitness tracking, and has a multi-week long battery. Ideally before my Pebble2 bites the dust and goes to a better place, (ie, at the bottom of the drawer of old tech I can't bring myself to throw away, next to my Minidisc player).
