During last year’s blackfriday sale I was introduced to the epic Lightblue Bean “Cheaper than a turkey” promotion. I grabbed two beans during a group buy spree. A week later’s The AmpHour interview with Colin Karpfinger justifies that my purchase is not purely impulsive. However I did make a mistake. I was under the impression that a Mac computer is sufficient to program the bean, but actually only recently Macs are supported, whereas my “Late 2010” Macbook Air is on the exclusion list due to the lack of Bluetooth 4.0 / Low Energy profile.
