Well, they want big margins too. BUT I said it all makes sense for them. I don't have an issue in the world with how the professional market works. It is just not the same priorities as the DIY market (my world).Dean Roddey said:It might not be necessarily high margin, but super-reliable is the key. Support costs money. Frustrated customers cost alot of money, both in support and in the bad press they give you. Building a system purely on lots of high level bits that you glue together is never as reliable because the automation system vendor cannot control the quality.
You are right about web pages, if you look at what HAS been made and not what is coming...
1. 640x480 available on every type of device.
2. Windows CE 5
3. USB on PDAs & Phones
4. FLASH! Flash allows the custom graphics to make any kind of skin...
5. .NET 2005...
Give .NET/CE 5 a little time for the applications to start rolling out. I am not sure how well Flash would stand up as a PDA/HA interface. It has the potential, but not sure where it is right now. I know Yahoo.com is hard to use on my phone, but that is not what I see when looking at the new generation of hardware and development tools.
Hey, I didn't mean to go off topic on Huggy. Grats on the 2.1 upgrade man. Did version 2 upgrade the PDA client (to tie our topics =) Is there screenshots of the HS PDA interfaces?
