username 198 Posted March 6, 2013 Share Posted March 6, 2013 Larissa, thanks for taking the time to explain some of the background info to us. Communication effort on the part of the manufacture is greatly appreciated and shows us your listening! I could only accomplish by getting good partners-->and the only way to get good partners... was frankly-- help them make money I'd say 43oh.com & its awesome members are quite decent partners to have for making the 430 ecosystem grow & even in the educational realm. Do note that the majority of us have no interest in making mega bucks off the msp430 and we all were certainly okay with that. Were all in this simply because its fun. Many of us enjoy working on a MCU development platform that was sub par to none in terms of price point. The price point of this platform inspired us to teach other members, write documentation for it, and create boosterpacks...ect. While you may gain some members with this move you will certainly lose others. Because as many members have already mentioned, more than doubling the price simply isn't competitive with what already exists out there. Don't forget your original member base! There was something significantly novel about you and your friends being able to develop on micro controllers for just $4.30. RobG, cde, LariSan and 1 other 4 Quote Link to post Share on other sites
