    News from the meeting at GC

    It seems like a sound argument until we remember that Nintendo is Nintendo. People buy the Nintendo brand for kids. Kids to adults want the Nintendo brand. And let's not forget that the New 3DS is a third the price of the Pyra. I doubt many other brands could have gotten away with what...

    Last known issue fixed

    First I thought, "Well, I guess ED doesn't need us anymore, he's made a money making machine." My next thought, "Oh wait, this is the part of the Pyra that draws in all of our money>" My thoughts drift off sometimes... How would it be? Academics require vetted peer reviewed sources... oh...

    Gamescom, sensor upgrade and other nice news

    The way that camera shoots video makes me feel like the camera is on a 3 meter tall robot and all the people are ants.

    News from all fronts

    Beige? Well, I guess Jobs introduced the silly colored computers in '98, and all the handhelds I can remember were black or beige. Well, until the game boy pocket I suppose.

    Wait, what about philosophy?

    Preorders Have Started. (Previously named starts in two hours)

    A few issues with that Most importantly, Intel seems to be abandoning ATOM, so we will see how that goes. Atom processors are pretty crap in my experience, but my main experience with it is a pretty crappy tablet (Chewi Hi8) For Windows it's more of an issue, but in Linux there's not much you...

    Preorders Have Started. (Previously named starts in two hours)

    If I'm not mistaken, true capitalism would lead to a truly free market. A truly free market would lead to no borders. What are borders for other than economic control? Also, if I'm not mistaken, it's the Communism (or corrupt/oppressive/ineffective governments) that leads to low wages and poor...

    Preorders Have Started. (Previously named starts in two hours)

    Yea, I thought LTE was going to be a step toward being compatible with the rest of the world since we screwed everything up with CDMA. Oh well. Also, I agree with , "fuck Verizon", but for other reasons. But yea, this different freq issue... I'd also like to compare it to using the Imperial...

    Finalizing everything!

    Someone else will have to link the frequencies on the EU 4G module, but I've used both the ZTE Open and the Firefox Flame (both non-US phones) on T-Mobile here in the states. Will it have 4G? I'm not sure, but 3G and cell should work where available. So Ting/T-Mobile will probably work, not...

    Finalizing everything!

    First, I don't think it has anything to do with "rogue" states. As an American, my papal has been blocked several times over the past however many years I've been using it for no discernible reason. I think PayPal is just crap in that regard all around. I also seem to recall J.P. Morgan/Chase...

    ... we're still alive!

    I just never understood the sudden jump to systemd when there were already alternatives available. runit for example, is pretty happy to deal with.

    ... we're still alive!

    The problem I've had with pulse... Laptop speakers are quiet, so boost Firefox to hear YouTube video. Later, turn down speakers with laptop hotkeys Later, turn the volume back up with laptop hotkeys (master volume afaik) Look at pavucontrol, All volumes I didn't adjust in the first place, now...

    A date with the Pyra

    Perhaps we should wait till pyra 2.0 to officially support android.  Like others have said, people will compare the specs to current gen Android devices and ignore it.  Hopefully with 2.0 we can have AMD support or at least be production ready enough to have time to release something comparable...

    That's what I thought as soon as I read it.

    Get ready to rumble!

    True, I forgot about the KS tax.  When I say "Market the hell out of it", I really mean to target Linux podcasts and the such.  Gamers are a great target too, but I really think the Linux admin crowd would fawn over stuff like this.  Now only if only we could make it completely FOSS.....

    Question: 4g antenna

    I remember reading about the 4g antenna becoming a possibility a while back, but now I can't find any information on it. Will the Pyra be able to connect to the T-Mobile network in the United States?  I have no idea what bands are going to be supported.  I'm sure this information is somewhere...

    Get ready to rumble!

    I think I nabbed the last one ^_^   Here's for #200! >>8 Prototypes for 1600€ and 200 risky Pre-Preorders sold out within 4 days and still people left who want to order. It is risky and that bothers me a bit, but what the hell?  I feel like I'm investing in something I've wanted since I...

    JACK instead of Pulseaudio?

    Jack wouldn't work as a main audio system.  ALSA is used regardless of which audio router (jack/pulse) is used.  ALSA by itself is pretty good until you open the wrong program and suddenly it locks the sound device.  So if you want more than one program that uses sound to be running, there will...
