It's software this time!

Should davesha skip the queue so he can work directly on the Pyra?

I have order two Pyra, one for a friend. I have received one correct mail to choose the color of one Pyra (worked) and another empty mail with no link inside.
How can I choose the color of the second Pyra?

What are the camera specs ? Did Davenshah work on program to make camera take a 10 sec to 20 sec clip Video with the press of a button For posting on various sites ?

What camera ?
The Pyra has no camera. You can plug external cameras to it like you would to a PC, more or less.

Also ordered two pyrae. Got one e-mail with link (IIUC the empty e-mail was related to something with german locale, en_us locale here so no empty email I guess). I don't care much about the color of the other pyra (as long as it is reasonably conservative), but I hope that both of my pyrae are in the queue...

Unfortunately it's 0×0 resolution. It's great for people who love solid black.

No, supposedly only 22 people ordered that. They get the 4GB Pyra for the price of the 2GB Pyra.

No, you deposit the same amount of money, but the final amount payable for 4GB was always slightly more than that for 2GB.
No, ED said he's probably going to give the 2GB pre-orders a free upgrade to 4GB. Supposedly there were only 22 pre-orders for a 2GB version and apparently that's not enough for ED to be willing to produce them. So it looks like no one will get the 2GB version and 22 people will have the 4GB version offered to them for the 2GB version price.

Edit: He actually said "probably".

Well that remains to be clarified, and what I said wasn't strictly wrong. If you selected a 4GB unit you were always due to pay slightly more than if you'd selected a 2GB unit. And it would seem slightly unfair to him if you selected a 2GB unit now that he's said he's not going to offer them.

I just tried and was unable to get the shop to give my the pyra pages. I hope that will be easier to navigate to once they become actually saleable, but at the moment I'm not sure what ED is actually offering.

It's probably less problematic to give the 2gb buyers a free upgrade than asking them for more money. I can see how it's unfair but it seems like the better move.

How is it unfair? Do you really think that those 2GB buyers mind getting a 4GB instead? They'd probably only ordered the 2GB version because it's cheaper and the price stays the same. The only advantage that the 2GB verison would probably have is using slightly less power.

And it's definitely not unfair to the 4GB buyers. The 4GB buyers get what they ordered, they're not getting shafted as far as the free upgrades are concerned. If ED wants to give out free upgrades to people for whatever reason then that's his right. He could go out on street and give 28 Pyras for free to a random stranger and it would not be unfair. I think it's good to know that he's solving this issue in the nicest way possible. 22 people get extra happy and no one is being shafted.

If you paypal me $5 I'll sign your kernel.

Also, no 2GB units means SW is stabilized quicker and easier to handle because we don't have to manage two versions of the bootloader :) Less variance in the field makes it a lot easier to handle (RAM size is difficult to autodetect with the current HW)
