On the topic of dodgy Kickstarter designs...

I hope this is not considered O/T. One reason I like BBB is that I have confidence it is well-designed and uses legitimate components from trusted sources.

Today I learned that a GSM-modem-containing module on KS, which I supported (with the expectation it would be ‘done right’), has a run of GSM modems which all have identical IMEI and serial numbers! This is a clear violation of the gsma IMEI guidelines about such things and opens up a whole can of worms.

My (hopefully relevant) point is that I am more than happy to support projects like BBB which hew to a higher standard than far too many crowd funded projects.
