Twitterix: “Oh, I forgot to tell you…”

Craigix: Oh, forgot to tell you all, the battery was upped to 4200mah and our tests are showing this monster is going to give something like 14 hours

A device that allows you to watch a 10 hour Eurovision marathon, then clock Mario 16 times? Finally! A nice win for frequent flyers, mountain climbers, and anyone who doesn’t carry mains voltage in their backback. Thanks to calc84maniac for spotting it first.



Dare we go there again? Another video on the way (TM)

July 23, 2009

It must be said, last time we announced an impending video based on a passing comment, it didn’t end so well. But here at op.wp we’re addicted to mayhem, and if you’re reading this, you are too. Go on, admit it. This little sequence of craigix communicoids goes from promising to amusing to promising again, and seemed worth sharing. First came the tweet:

Doing a new Pandora software roundup video with the latest wares. Going well.

Then a comment on the forums. It turns out a certain fruit-emblazoned box of tricks took issue with Craig’s ext2 formatted SD card.

I just made the mistake of putting one of the Pandora SD cards in to a mac. It seems the mac, being a mac, thought it would be a good idea to do something macish to the SD card which has now caused it not to work in the Pandora anymore.

Great. Let’s see if I can solve this on the PC.

Twitterix: What say you on the first 100?

July 2, 2009
Posted by: gruso

Just to lend some context to this, Craig floated the idea back in March of sending out the first handful of completed Pandoras to a selection of lucky testers, for a fortnight of real world hammering before the remainder of the batch shipped. The topic has come up again in the last day or so, and is now brought to you in Twitterix form.

How do we decide who gets these first 100 Pandoras.. and how might we organise the feedback? For the sake of software should we go all devs?

Here’s an idea. We’ll start by listing everyone who doesn’t want one of the first ones. That’ll narrow it right down, oh yes. If you have a better idea (and let’s face it, your cat probably does), fire up the keyboard and have at it.



Twitterix: Ten keymats

Brevity is the soul of Twitter, and so very Craig. He tells us this:

10 mass production keymats just arrived!

Obviously we’ve already seen a pile of production keymats, so there are two possibilities here. Either they’re new ones with corrected character alignment, or they’re the ones we’ve already seen pictured, and they’ve been shipped from Fatih in Turkey. The latter is most likely. Why is this cool? Because Craig is now geared up to put his new HD video camera to work, on a transparent Pandora that you can actually type on. You like this.

Twitterix: Nubs pwned, spawn point saved

April 14, 2009

A tweet from Craig:

Looks like the company who designed the nubs has gone tits up, fortunately the moulds are already at the factory. We will deal with it.

Update: Chip has posted a little more detail on the forums:

The design company went under, but the factory remains and can make more nubs whenever we need them. The problem is that although we paid the design company for the first batch of nubs, they never paid the factory. This means we’re going to have to pay for the nubs twice, which really sucks.

Thanks to Clean3D for the heads up.


Twitterix: Craig gets his case

A tweet from Craig, going something like this:

CNC case arrived but the light pipes were not clear, not a show stopper. I’ve also arranged to manage an iPhone and Pandora commercial game.

Never mind the light pipes, just put the thing together gosh. And dare we ask about this cross-platform game? No, we do not. Sounds suitably intriguing though.

Stay tuned to the twitterix here, if you like your tweets wrapped in bacon enigmas.
