Simplicity is key

Any product that can help simplify debugging and writing of code is important today. Sensor-based applications are calling on engineers of all backgrounds to write and debug. A lot of the engineers don't have extensive software background and many have mechanical engineering educations. The more the Atmels of the world can streamline this process, the better.

It's cool Jon that even very high-tech electronics have USB connectivity. To me, this represents an important way to make all of our media connectible. It's one thing the electroncis community has done well. Straying a bit from the point, I think there needs to be much more effort to develop standard protocols for consumer electroncis products. My biggest pet pieve is the fact that whenever I have to replace a cell phone, I have to get a new type of cable to charge the battery. I have a drawer full of them hoping some day I can re-use one.
