A source close to the company told TechCrunch that watch maker Citizen was interested in purchasing Pebble for $740 million in 2015. This deal failed and before the launch of the Pebble 2 Intel made an offer for $70 million. The CEO, Eric Migicovsky refused both offers. Our source said that Fitbit is now paying between $34 and $40 million for the company and is “barely covering their debts.”
Ouch. What a shame.

Years ago I was hanging out in Seattle, after passing through Portland, with a handful of great people, one of which was +Steve Kondik.

This was years before anyone even really would have believed one day CM would have an actual office anywhere, let alone multiple offices. I said that night that all I ever wanted to see from CM was for it one day to go from a project where everyone was donating an incredible amount of time and effort to where those same people were now making a living doing it. Steve agreed, that was the dream.

Everyone seems quick to point out the mistakes made along the way that lead to where we are now, but I wanted to take a moment and recognize one thing. Steve went from working days without sleep in CM right alongside the community working just as hard to actually bringing those very people from the community in to a business where they got to continue doing what they loved, only they were now being paid for it.

Silicon Valley is ruthless, and more often than not it's the small mistakes along the way that'll end everything you've ever fought for. With little to no leniency you're putting a lot on the line to go after a dream like CM as a company. With the odds forever stacked against you from day one I'm really happy to see how far Steve took that dream.

Seeing Steve get knocked down in one way or another in the past and watching as he came back even stronger lets me know this is far from the end, it's just a big speed bump on a much longer road. Best of luck to you, Steve. I'm actively awaiting to see what's next.

Negative headlines sell clicks unfortunately, and that causes us to lose sight of all the positives that are associated with things. Drop a comment with your favorite memory of CM over the years it's been a thing since back when it was just a little thread on XDA (bonus points for remembering JF). CM has come too far to only be remembered by the current headlines being posted.
