Why does my browser open up 6 TCP connections to try to download six images at once

The website could easily be serving those 6 images as 1 image and use CSS to display them individually.

Actually, it's a protocol issue.
I believe this sort of thing is being changed for HTTP/2, with multiplexing.

Sounds like they sold software right to FitBit and are shutting Pebble down.
