Imagine a fleet of diamond mining slaves equipped with shovels and controlled by capitalists. :)

>> Their upcoming "pro" version adds analog sampling, but it is not yet out.

The pre-order option was due to ship within 90 days
Now the website claims to ship pre-orders in July.
I've bought the standard logic 8 a month ago and can't wait for the Pro 8. I've been watching these folks almost every day. The device and interface is just to good to be true. (tested on linux and that evil/stupid windows)
  I've fix several embedded device issues in one night, the first night that this device arrived.

  I Highly recommend that anyone who is thinking about it, download the software and try it out. It will give you simulated data if you do not have an actual device connected. The simulated data can include SPI, I2C, UART, etc...

I have the following:
$600,000 house (and appropriate decor/landscaping)
Infinity G35
Several Patents (yes, a real job)
A Wife
4 android phones
2 android tablets
3 linux workstations

I would sooner give up tech than use apple products.
I just don't 'get' the ambiguous sexuality of apple products.
(or whatever they are trying to sell besides hardware.)

I won't even go into the frivolous lawsuits.

I can afford them. I'm just not fancy enough. (and don't want to be)
