Apiara has just started a project in North Carolina where they will distribute discounted hive scales to a selected group of participants. I've already signed up for this project. A friend of mine recently voiced some concerns that he has about the company itself. Basically, what happens if the company goes out of business? Will the weight sensors just become over priced paper weights when the web servers go down? Is there some way to retrieve the broadcasted information locally or is it completely under Apiara's control?
I'm hoping that people who already have some of the older versions of the hive sensors might have some insight into this since the company seems to be unwilling to respond to these questions.
