    I seem to recall, their promise to all the early adopters, that we would always get the full experience and would never have to pay for an upgrade.
    I wonder if they will be good on their word to give us early adopters the full experience without paying extra as they promised?
    Anybody remember their exact wording on this?

    I do not remember the exact wording but I do recall them saying something along the lines that we would receive constant updates and features at no additional charge.

    Unfortunately for us early adopters who shelled out that high dollar amount, they are just saying we will only have the $99 experience now. Like I said, scam.

    Edit:
    Maybe I should check the wayback machine for the exact wording. We may have a bait and switch case on our hands.

    They're going to crash and burn then. I will make sure to tell everyone I know to avoid them. I am sure all the bad word of mouth will eventually bite them in the behind. My father raised me to never promise what I can't keep, and to make good on the promises I do. This is just bad face for them.

    Okay so here is a screen capture of the page from December 2016. Looks to me they did indeed make that promise.

    Good find, I am sure there was some more info as well as that.
    Future technology might have them though.

    Yep. I emailed support with this image asking if us early adopters can expect a refund for the money we spent over the current $99 for their deceit. Doubt I'll hear back though.

    Could also make it more public with their Twitter account.
    And Facebook, if they have that.
