Weekly Roundup

by Aaron Brethorst | December 23, 2012

Happy holidays to all of you from Marine and I! I want to thank everyone who participated in our survey; enough of you chose to have us donate to charity: water to give four families clean drinking water. We’ll be poring over of the data collected and using it to better focus our efforts on delivering more of what you want to see on Cocoa Controls in the new year. I, personally, am very excited!

All the best,
Aaron and Marine
