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

    Another summary of the state update (or a video) would be nice!

    Pyra News: Springs are brilliant!

    This completely matches my view too! I have a friend who waited to see it produced before ordering it, so I guess he is not alone and lot of new order will come once once Pyra starts shipping.

    2 Months™ and Communism Banter (Split from Springs are brilliant! )

    Then again one can move to a semi-communist state of China, so no reason to complain either. Grew up in two countries with a very different type of communism, don't miss those days a bit. Not that capitalism is without its flaws, but they pale compared to all tried alternatives.

    Some personal stuff - and prototypes building!

    Thanks a lot for your updates! I am very happy to see that the biggest current issue with Pyra is moving forward very nicely!

    RetroFlag GPi Case - A 'GBZero' that isn't janky

    Why not one of original GBAs (potentially modded)? What do you miss from that setup?

    32blit Retro-inspired Homebrew Handheld with Open-source Firmware

    For me the most critical aspect for such a handheld (there are plenty of those lately) is the quality of the 4-way d-pad. Gamebuino has an OK one, where ClockworkPi has a sub-par one that in 1/20 of the cases registers a wrong keypress. For me even the one from GCW zero, while acceptable was not...

    Not much text here. Just a video.

    Same here, so do whatever suits you better. Quarter of a content, but twice as often would be also preferable for me.

    RetroFlag GPi Case - A 'GBZero' that isn't janky

    My major concern it the quality of the buttons. Was very disappointed with the clockwork ones...

    Some personal stuff - and prototypes building!

    I agree. The stone-look Pyra is close to perfect. I'd accept it for my pre-preorder right away!

    Case Improvements and the keymat

    Great update once more! Very happy to read it!!! One minor point you intended to extend the keymat with speaker sealing. Is that still a plan? My feeling is that a custom heatsink might be another obstacle. All in all it seems that the things are moving along nicely. Side note I've made another...

    I love this series of updates gives us something to see and is very regular. Also it is amazing how fast and good you recovered from both personal and health issues!

    Just a bunch of pics

    Not a major issue for me (as I don't have any pets) but some animals hear higher pitches than humans and are annoyed by them. Is the new pitch friendly to dogs?

    GPD Pocket ready for preorder :)

    What is the current state of Linux drivers for it? What Linux distribution would be the best to use? Pondering if I need this before Pyra comes out... ANd I don't feel like spending lot of time configuring it...

    Analyzing 4GB RAM

    In which sense Telegram is better than WatsApp? Open source of Signal, concentrating on end-to-end encryption of Threema I could understand, but Telegram... Are you aware of this: ?

    Analyzing 4GB RAM

    As I said some weeks ago - happy to switch from 4 to 2 GB if it helps producing Pyra faster. ;-)

    I'm out of ideas for news-titles

    Frankly, although I personally prefer 4 GB and would pay extra for it, I'd be more than happy with 2 GB too. If it's delay the production couple of months or so, I'd rather have it sooner than have it perfect...
