Re: Looperlative demo online...
0. Bob is not running a for-profit business but a hobby business.
It's not expected to do much more than break even.
1. Bob did the research part for free because he likes the material.
2. It's often easier to be a one-man organization as you can jettison
all the "having to communicate with other employees" baggage and just
work. The amount of time I spend listening or talking to other people
as opposed to writing programs is just staggering.
3. If Bob makes them himself on a "limited production" scale at a
higher price point then he can actually make money on them.
I have high hopes for this unit. The only reason I wouldn't see him
selling many hundreds of units over a few years is that people might
just decide to go for a computer and be done with it (and get all the
other stuff too). But if this works as advertised, it'll beat a
computer hollow for this one specific purpose...
