I was on Facebook today and came across a pretty cool gizmo name Darlite. They have a Kickstarter page. In a nutshell, it's a little device that allows you to play any type of music
That is their Kickstarter page. My question is do you think Sonos will be coming out with this feature anytime soon. I could do without the lights that Darlight has. I just want to be able to play anything that is on my phone via my Sonos Speakers.

There have been a few topics in the last week about this product, so the word Spam about it is getting thrown around. I just want to be clear, it's ok to talk about other products here, competing or not. Promotion of websites, sales, products is frowned upon or not allowed, so it's a close line sometimes.
My rule of thumb is that discussion about the product or app is fine, but selling it isn't. This topic is now in the Music, culture, and the industry area, because it's about something in the industry. Feel free to discuss Darlite, but please refrain from spamming it in other threads or pushing anyone into buying it.
The question from the start on this thread is:

That's a perfectly fine discussion to have here. I can't comment officially on it, but the community is welcome to speculate. I'll pass the suggestion and interest on to the development team though.
I'll leave you with a personal warning about kickstarting products, as others have said, it's selling vaporware. Some really great projects have come out of Kickstarter, which is really cool and a great idea. But there's also a very dark side to that coin. We've all heard stories of people who have cut and run with the money, or projects that completely fell through black holes and disappeared. But that's just my personal opinion, so you can take that all with several grains of salt or sugar, your choice.
