    Interesting article. What I take from it:

    – normally you can see when something is too good to be true. But some tech fields really are advancing so fast that a new product at 1/10 the price may legitimately be better than an old product.

    – yet another reason not to buy anything, ever, that relies on central servers.

    – Kickstarter isn’t magic. Quite a few people have been waiting to see what would happen when a big project failed. Now we know.

    – (from this and other KS problems) it’s really important to resist the lure of stretch goals. Making more of the basic thing is great. Making the basic thing more expensive to produce can be a huge error.
