You know, you can't beat the PIC24/dsPIC33 (16bit) or the PIC32 for price and performance...I've used both for many project and have now standardizer on the PIC32..., no need to use a limiteted processor to do small project...The development tools are free and solid, lots of demo code available...a PIC32MX270F256B is in a dip package, USB serial, SPI, I2C I/O ATD ect... 64KB ram, 256K flash all for $4!!!(there even a version of BASIC that run on the chip)you can use a Microstick II from Microchip for $35 to program them or PicKIT3 for $45 ( on sale from time to time) (donot get a PICKIT2)http://www.microchip.com/DevelopmentTools/ProductDetails.aspx?PartNO=dm330013-2

how they operate and learn to program them. What possible uses they may have
There is a ton of stuff out there. Looking for recommendations of which micro controllers
are easy to use and program, don't require a ton of $$$ for the dev tools, etc.
Looks like the Microchip PIC is a contender.
STM8S003F3P6 ST Microelectronics - 8 bit MCU 8K flash 16mhz CPU, EEPROM, UART Chip is less than $1 !
