At the recent DefCon conference I was chatting with the guy behind HackerBoxes and was sad to learn that Intel has recently dropped some of their efforts. I took a look and found info that they are dropping production of the Edison, Galileo, Curie, and Joule products by the end of 2017 or mid 2018.
This is a bit disappointing. I thought some of these had a lot of potential, and I think that if they haven’t been as successful as they could have been that maybe Intel didn’t do all they could to make these products successful. I know Sparkfun had put out several items in support of the Edison. I had hoped to see more published information on these items and there was a planned work on the Edison and Galileo that never came out.
As far as I can tell they are still supporting the Euclid product, but that’s just not the same.
Does this end Intel’s foray into this realm? Hopefully not.
