What changes are in store due to the Logitech acquisition? Changes in price of the product?

I love the squeezebox, and while acquisition by a larger company brings more resources - sometimes it also brings pressures to reduce costs and - subsequently - typically quality. I hope that the slim devices spirit lives on after the acquisition...

Anyone have thought on this?

Nope -- there has been no discussion about possible effects of the
acquisition by Logitech. :)

Personnel shakeups?

Is Dean still with the company, or is he just taking an extended vacation?

He was drawn, quartered, and eaten by the Logitech board of directors
in a cannibalistic orgy of corporate evil.

like:


All of our employees have accepted new employment offers, and we will remain in our Mountain View location. Dean, Patrick and I expect to stay for the foreseeable future.

I think the only "shakeup" is as in "shaken, not stirred."

Didn't he vanish around the same time that guy with the appendage-size issues was inviting us all to go meet him on his yacht off south america? Hmmm....

Or is he nose to the grindstone putting the final polish on some new
Slimmie Goodness?
