Quote from: Video
"I don't think you're gonna earn too much money with it ... in general I think it's gonna earn maybe $15 a month"

And by "a month" they literally mean a month; this one.  Next month it'll be closer to $7, then $3, then $1 and pretty soon it's stuck.

Given that it sells for around $150 (there's a few cheaper out of group buys), the only reason to get this thing is if you're mining for fun, maybe want to play with the firmware some (though as largely a front-end to the static ASIC, not nearly as flexible as an admittedly much slower FPGA miner).

I've had 2 running for about 12 hours and according to the pool data earned: 0.00126189 BTC
Looks to be about $0.61 with a $489.43 btc/usd rate, that should be about $18 a month / stick (before electricity costs) at current difficulty and btc price- running 24/7.

I'll pull one out when I have a meeting to be able to show what a USB miner looks like.
