If we had something like a “SCSI standard” (the standard that allows me to plug most any hard drive into any computer with a SCSI controller and have it actually work) for meters, then the endless upgrade cycles wouldn’t be so bad.
I really don’t care how many colors it can use in a report or how fast it can upload all my data to a web site for every hax0r to see. I just want my damn data.
What’s that? The original question? Oh yeah… I’ll pick b. The meters are already quite adequate. It’s time for the price to come down.
