Amazon has acquired eero
Congratulations to eero. Not terribly shocking to me that they got acquired but still kind of a bummer. Acquisitions usually don’t result in being a good thing for the customers of the pre-acquisition product. I’m also not a big fan of Amazon’s privacy functionality. At least I know my current eeros don’t have Alexa built in :)
Another not so positive story regarding the sale and situation: https://www.theverge.com/2019/4/5/18297619/amazon-eero-price-fire-sale-mesh-wi-fi-buyout
I guess I should have sold mine when they kept prices grossly out of line with the competition. Hopefully, Amazon has a viable strategy and won't kill it off.
The news continues to get better 🤦🏻♂️ 🖱
Time to look at the positives. eero will stay well above water with Amazon.
Eh, still glad I sold mine and got my $$$ back. Amazon will strip the tech and make a new "Alexa"product
Reading an updated article on how Amazon bought Eero dirt cheap further supports my theory that Amazon will strip the tech and use it for data mining.
