Especially if they only sell 100 to the people who have indicated interest here (those that still care).  Each one will cost $1000 just to cover expenses!

I just received an email from the Authinx Owner on this.
He stated they didn't expect to recoup their investment any time soon if at all?
The manufacture is still dragging this out stating they are now testing with the newly designed software and expect a release version available shortly. 
I wish I had better news but will continue to keep everyone updated.
X10 turned me into a Software programmer.
A warning label should have been added ;)

newly designed software

Wasn't that the stuff that was designed after the LAST Chinese new year?   :o

They have actually gone through several designers (developers).
The last device shipped to Authinx for testing wouldn't stay connected to Wi-Fi (that was a year ago I believe)
I told them I thought the Manufacture was stalling and dragging things out.

Sounds like the project was time and materials based :)

Watching a story about Liftmaster door openers and their Smartphone app made me think about an X10 Smartphone app. Sorry to see WiFi is not going well.

Tuiceman, you are consistent. :) I hate to be a grammar nazi but...

Threw is past tense of throw.

Through is the word you want. An informal version is thru.

thanks for pointing that out,
I very often fail to check posts for grammar prior to posting. ;)

I got some encouraging news on the Wi-Fi module hub the other day.
the latest prototype has gone through in house testing with every few issues.
All of which appear to be software issues.
The Good news is they finally have a developer that understands X10 and what Authinx is trying to do.

They need to compare results to a real world environment however they only have the one prototype which was hand made.
Another is being made to confirm testing results.
Hopefully this won't take to long to put together.
I suspect once these latest issues are worked out with the developer an initial production run will occur.
If you snag one you'll be a beta tester. ;)
The current software is only for androids and a smart phone is required to set up the hub.
