Pebble's Migicovsky: we're focused on software, not hardware right now (video) - Engadget

Pebble's Migicovsky: we're focused on software, not hardware right now (video) - Engadget | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

We had our Kickstarter backers, who were the first to support us. Our job now, almost exclusively as a company, is to move the software forward. Pebble has the really cool ability to update the firmware over the air. It gets better as we publish more software updates. There's been some gaps, we've moved quickly and broken some things, but we're working to make sure that the moment you open up a Pebble box, it's making your life better in tiny ways."
