Stop Saying “Hardware is Hard”

I think Hardware is hard because when you put something out there, you can’t just send point-release via the app store to fix your issues/bugs. Hardware is much more permanent than Software, and it gets beat up and broken. The hurdles of maturity to ship a good product (and keep it sold — not generating tons of returns) and overall quality/durability are massive.

Look at Pokemon Go: buggy, crashes, etc. But scales so fast. Hardware cant do that. You ship something half-finished and your startup/company is toast. The cost of returns/replacement immediately wipes out your profits and you’re done.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
