So, if there's no silkscreen, everything will just be blank? Or what. Am I missing something here?

ED, I made a new unofficial blog post, some have commented to you by name. If you get the time, maybe read the responses and if you have anything to say.

Does that mean that ALSA doesn't support the audio chip yet?
It just means we don't have a software mixer setup yet. Sound output is done through Alsa, so I guess ALSA works ;)
I thought I heard somewhere that the plan was to use PulseAudio - which should work as a mixer and also let me stream my Pandora's audio to a PC with decent speakers when home. Was I wrong about that? (I kinda hope not)

I don't know what speed WiFi usually goes up to as I don't have a WiFi router myself, yet. I used to have 512 kb/s ADSL years ago, it's really good for browsing but a pain to download anything on. Last time I checked I had 76 Mb/s downspeed in my flat.

For the uneducated:
If you get up to 1 Mb/s it would take 8 seconds to download 1 MB or 13 h 20 min to download 100 MB. So yeah, downloading anything but small files won't be fun.

The case printings will be missing, yes. Keyboard printings will still be there, just not ports and LED descriptions.

I hope they do the silk screening, I could really care less about it but my buddy who I talked into buying a pandora, was really excited about the "first batch" stamp.

He's weird, he always pays the big bucks for the "limited edition" of things like a collector would but then uses and abuses them like your average consumer would. He does have some pretty cool t-shirts from it though.

"first batch stamp" and "all blank" are both indicators of the same thing :)

IT actualyl looks really good in pitch black :)

I would advise that we DON'T use pulseaudio as it's still too messy to use. ALSA is fine on its own. I would prefer jack of course but then most apps would need to be rewritten to use it.

I'm cool with either, but would it not be a trivial task to remove silk screening from a later batch pandora to mimic a first batch device?
