RIP Intel Edison

Seems that intel has given up on the IoT space to large extent by cancelling the Edison amongst other things. They had a few things going for them, especially when paired with a battery card.

The combo above is certainly more compact than a Raspberry Pi equivalent but somehow it was always a pain to work with. Maybe just a bit too embedded. Mine got consigned to the “technology I no longer have time or space for” bin in the garage quite a long time ago whereas Raspberry Pis continue to multiply.
