    Wade, Good question.  Will be happy to explain

    The major reason for the change is economics.  16G MicroSD card (with a brand) is costing just a few dollars more than an 8G generic brand.  It is logical for us to change since it will give us more room for future apps.   And we have many many ideas to expand the little box...

    Since the beginning, some of our Kickstarter supporters were suggesting us leave the SD card slot in.   This means you can actually upgrade to any sized card in the future.  

    Not really future, you can do that today ... we publish our latest and greatest image and directions to upgrade here

    And if anyone can't make the large SD card, we will be happy to create an SKU have them orderable.  We will do a small mock-up to cover the logistics.

    This got me thinking in the future will you also upgrade the hardware to the little box for whatever reason like to make it faster or to support more features (more secure)?

    and if you do what will happen to us that has this version any way to make the upgrade as well I can see many problems with this but I am just wondering if you ever do make a upgrade since tech is always evolving is good to think that this little box will evolve as well

     Yes, we will upgrade the boxes for sure.  definitely not now, since we are so busy upgrading software.   HW evolution will be slower for sure.
