I agree with you, and that's normally true that hardware is cheaper than software. The situations is more complicated for IoT devices. They cannot scale out, and sometimes you need their size and power requirements.

I am building something for a client on just such a platform now. Bit twiddling is necessary. They're paying for the privilege of running on one of these little guys. That's how I look at it.

I love doing it too. It means what I used to only be able to do for fun I get to do professionally now. Smile | :)
