I thought I would do some reading but I can't find this.Do you have a link to it?...R
It is in that spirit that I reckon "Open Source" products are intended to be sold at cost-covering rather than exploitative prices.
If the Arduino folk wish to present the data to justify the price I will be pleased to read it.
I am well aware that more than the marginal production costs need to be recovered in the price of anything.
You paid the price and bought one.
That's all the price justification they need.
However, this would automatically be adjusted if the Yun were really Open Hardware, as other companies would be able to copy or enhance the design and sell it at a lower price point.
with a bare-bone Domino Qi Mini 1/2 of the size of the original Yun.
I was just looking at that. I've been toying with building several boards (for personal use) that would have a Yun on them like a daughter card. Using something like the Qi Mini would work better for my uses, but I see that it doesn't have an SD card slot. I believe the only way to add it (in a way that is Yun compatible) would be to put the USB hub/SD card chip on my board, is that correct? I don't need the Ethernet port or USB port, but external storage would be nice.Instead of putting in the USB hub chip, can the D+/D- pins on the Qi Mini go right to a USB socket so it could be used with a USB thumb drive? Would that accomplish my external storage goal? Or is something like the USB hub chip required, even for a single port?
@Robin2,It's apparent you need indoctrination.
I'm assuming that is intended as a complimentAlthough I am not quite sure if you mean "indoctrinated so I don't object to high prices" ?If so, maybe "anaesthetised" would be a better word Thanks for the links....R
