    What have you bought recently?

    Yes. True. I bought a cheap case with a fan. It connects to gpio pins and no issues. It isn't a big deal at all. The case was ~$12 with fan and power cord.

    What have you bought recently?

    I have 1 running kodi with elementum (torrent streaming) on the living room tv and one as a desktop/SFTP server. Been running a desktop with a pi since the original. For video/browsing/etc they work great

    Using a Pyra as a 4g modem?

    Should work via hostapd. Worst case you could likely connect via bluetooth or usb instead of wifi and share the connection

    Stackoverflow got a new Code of Conduct, most downvoted post ever

    Nothing. I think the issue is accidentally using the wrong pronouns and then the other person getting upset. That is something the trans community seems to have little tolerance for. We have all probably seen the Gamestop video of the poor employee being berated because he accidentally said...

    I'm waiting for the pinephone. Which will probably be out before the pyra. But it's a cheap <$150 linux phone with hardware cutoff switches. It also has features most new phones don't include (although my lg v20 still has all these and more), removable battery, video out, sd card (bootable)...

    That's what i mean. You looked into it. So 1. You don't know anything about it 2. You don't know companies 3. You don't work with companies 4. You don't even know if it will work 5. You don't know if the adhesive will get messed up But you decided to be the "good idea fairy" and create work...

    We need more drama. So here's another video.

    It is pretty frustrating that things that were complete are now not complete. I do think case matching plastic is better for the logo. I'm worried the flimsiness will allow something to poke through and damage the screen from the back.

    A video. Again. Mostly about cases.

    Rotator and hardware acceleration don't work together. There was never definative news that the cpu had full speed. Sound issues persist. There are many more issues. Unoptimized debian...will be rough in most gui cases. Again. I like watching stuff improve and i know it will. These things...

    A video. Again. Mostly about cases.

    Except the software will be beta and people won't buy for the first year. Reviewers will not like the old hardware and the unfinished software. Congrats you got a bad review with or without paint by tech writers and you won't have a market aside from techies until software is refined. So delay...

    A video. Again. Mostly about cases.

    People are talking about reviewers bashing the case without paint and it costing buyers... What do you think the reviewers will say about the state of the software (no hardware acceleration and rotation at the same time, charging issues, can it operate full speed yet? How about the audio...

    A video. Again. Mostly about cases.

    Eh those same people will/have probably scoffed at the ram and processor...and are not the target audience. Painting it would probably still not result in any of them buying one. Those people would buy a gpd which: 1. Is cheaper 2. More powerful 3. Runs Windows 4. Is out now

    A video. Again. Mostly about cases.

    This won't be widely sold so who cares about reviewers? The Pandora sold 3,000ish with a lot more hype and far fewer competitors than now. Additionally ED wants to redo the case and paint/fixes canbe incorporated with the slimmer case.

    Even more to see here (now)

    Two words for you. They start with F and U. Go back to your awaiting prototype thread and acting like you are some genius with bs ideas...yeah nobody thought of those before :eyeroll:

    Even more to see here (now)

    You can understand the time and energy but also see tons of needless delays and what seems to be back burnering coupled with delays due to scope creep. I have posted some stuff to that effect in the past. It has been a long time, it will never be perfect but it needs to get out. So delays to...

    Preparing for a Prototype

    Google fi runs off both tmobile, Sprint and us cellular. So you could get gsm support through them (tmobile is gsm) I expect a tmobile sim will work well and plan on that
