Massdrop is now DROP

So, what’s up with Massdrop becoming DROP?

I hate it. Worst thing they’ve ever done for sure. Trying to be trendy almost never works out, except for the Wendy’s Twitter account. And the branding isn’t even consistent. Their old products are still branded massdrop.

I just saw the reviews on the shift keyboard. They certainly are interesting.

I think it’s the perfect name for them considering how much they drop the ball…

Were they recently purchased?

They haven’t had a funding round since 2015 and still haven’t IPO’d. I don’t think so, although since they still haven’t IPO’d, we may not be privy to that information.
