  1. Matt, interesting. As somebody with a long history of helping technology businesses and a specialist in bringing technology to market (especially hardware), I find it interesting. I’ve watched the rise in software only products and the swamping of the word “App” and the shift to SAS. But it seems things may be on the turn. Hardware products do bring a special development flow cycle that has largely been either forgotten or yet to be experienced by the current generation.
