When someone tells me that they have no time my response to that is, everyone has 24 hours in their day. Which is my way of saying, I don't want to hear it.

They spent 3 years developing this stuff.

This is really a sham. They try to hide the fact that it's a sham by dressing it up as a children's product.

The litmus test is: software. It's got a processor, and it's got connectivity. Are we able to load/modify our own firmware on the thing?

Or is the customer limited to just what they decided to prepackage with the app, and nothing else?

How is that "maker" oriented? Because you can dress it up and put a skirt on it?
