I don't necessarily disagree with you about the Abbot vs. Hirsch thing. I just wish their pricing was a little more "in line" Yea, yea, yea,we've all heard the whine about this "just being an EPROM" but I sincerely believe that research does go into this and R&D is not free and should not be ripped off.
