I think those campaign-archive sites are usually used by people who don't want their own servers to suffer under the traffic of emails sent through mailing lists (well, the 'open this mail in your browser' part anyway). Nothing shady about them in general. I'm not subscribed to Turing's mailing list so I can't say for sure if they sent this, but I guess they actually did.

Either that or then TRI has gone totally bonkers.

ROFLMAO, can't breathe...

Thought of that too.
In that case, they have also hijacked/created a dummy twitter profile for TRI's CEO: https://twitter.com/sylchao who is sharing the news.


Also the website name is outside TRI's domain, but as is the mailing subscription website. On TRI's website if you follow "get update", then click subscribe without setting an email address you land there : https://turingri.us11.list-manage.com/subscribe/.......
Which as the same owner information : http://www.whois.com/whois/list-manage.com

So it may be legit... (a fake device, but coming from the "real" TRI)

It looks like it's a mailing list management service that also runs MailChimp. Why they use such a generic-sounding URL -- instead of something more customized to the customer -- is beyond me. Maybe that costs extra. It does kind of distract from the message when you're wondering "who the hell is campaign-archive1," though.

Normally you read an email in your client or webmail so that URL is barely clicked. Of course when sharing it publicly it becomes more of an issue.

Whoever created this chart is brilliant. Impossible to read, impossible to understand. Impossible to implement.

It does seem like either the R&D dept is on something or they're just throwing out some insane ideas to see where peoples interest lies. It seems there is some more info on the Outer Blueprint program to come, so we will have to see what that is.

In some ways, as crazy as the recent ideas are, it is actually quite interesting to see. Firstly, from a design point of view, the 2 most recent announcement and the preview phones sent out all have quite different designs. A lot of the high spec, low price phones coming out of China seem to borrow heavily from Samsung and Apple. Secondly it does seems to offer some, albeit crazy, ideas none of the big name companies have yet to put out.

Do I think they will ever reach the market as stated? Not a chance, at the moment. When/If the final production version of the current device is released and promises are met, I'll reconsider it a possibility.

Exactly. They have yet to deliver the device that is/was actually doable.
