Correct me if I am wrong. It would appear that Particle adheres to the hybrid model. I would be interested to hear about the challenges Particle has faced with this model.

Well said Zach! It would also help if you include financial comparison (ARR/ROI/... etc) between the different models.

Nice write up! Would help to include examples of successes and failures in each business model type.

In particular, #1 has some good successes even with ‘smart’ features (Moment Lens camera app and Teenage Engineering mixers come to mind. Oura is in this group, and not dead yet too).

One other thing to consider is refresh cycles, how often will new versions come out or replacements be required.
