The Flipper Zero project
I'm not going to lie, Flipper Zero sounds like a cool project for hackers. Here's a link to their website which will lead you to their Kickstarter page.
What is going on on Kickstarter?
Something extremely scummy is going on right now! Have a look:
Looking good, lot's of stuff to read, let's take our time.
My word, they're almost out of Early Birds! Please, for the love of god, if you want to save some money, pledge now, only 9 left and it clearly says "Limited"!
One minute later
A person has just pledged! Where's my credit card?
Another minute later
Wait, 9 left? Someone bailed? Doesn't matter, I need this!
Yet another minute later
And it goes on
This needs to stop
Well, you get the point. Flipper Zero is having some employee continuously adding more "Limited" pledges to perpetually give the impression they are almost out of "Early Bird" kits.
That's extremely deceptive and manipulative behavior and should not be tolerated. This needs to stop right now.
