Pebble, the Future and Morpheuz

It's terribly sad that Pebble have gone the way of Psion, Palm, Blackberry (nearly) & Commodore. I liked the idea, the products, the company attitude, the fellow developers, and the Pebble staff members I met. It would have been nice to see them succeed, especially against the "big boys". This is my English love of the underdog.

So I would like to raise a glass to Eric, Cherie, Thomas, Katharine, Jon and hope they go on to greater things.

Max, I hope we shall bump into each other on future projects.

Whilst I won't be adding any more features to Morpheuz, I will attempt to bug fix what I can without Pebble support, and keep the servers running for as long as is reasonable*. It does cost money and has paid for itself on advertising (on the www.morpheuz.net site) and by donations to paypal so far.

Remember Morpheuz is an open source project on github and always has been. If you want to change anything and re-compile your own personal version or submit some changes, be my guest.

* Definition of "reasonable" is difficult. Less than 100 users and the money running out possibly?
