I keep hearing the word "promising" and such ...out of this project.

Frankly I won't touch, invest , support, or purchase anything any more unless :

A- it actually is "proven" to run linux, and run it with no issues.
B- it has a large enough end user base and community (too many issues with small communities)
and
C- it is ACTUALLY already made, on the shelf , are shipping AND buyers are finding NO surprises (in the form of issues ..hardware, support or any other surprises no one anticipated getting with their purchase)

I am sure all I said comes across as being jaded or bitter or..countless other possible negatives...
But it isn't...
When I purchase something, I expect it to work, I expect to have some tech support, some warranty even...
But never again will I just throw money at an endeavor with the "hope" that it will get out of even prototype stage...
No more of that lunacy.

Crowdfunding is gambling...at best.

I don't throw money anymore at "attempts" to complete something.
Few people on this earth get paid for "almost" finishing their work.
Perhaps I should do some crowdfunding...

Yeah, me neither. Scams are not fun!

But I do will continue investing in stock exchange and currencies. Sometimes you hit some scammers there too but usually you have the opportunity to go through the results which should give you an idea how you want to act. that said loosing money is part of the game but at least you usually have an idea about the company, top management and previous result and track records.

But in the end it comes down to luck and currently most markets going through the roof...

BTW, how is legislation of Cannabis in Canada coming along?? I have done some nice investments in the area...

I don't do drugs but cannabis enhanced eggnog sounds like a good idea...

I would invest immediately! Set it up

Not even for medical purposes?

Or do you mean you don’t invest in drugs or medical treatments?

During surgery something is nice for some quality sleeping time. Tried that a few times. Eggnogy.

Foldable phone from Samsung. Possibly maybe. might give as an one screen...QWERTY

Until some cool new or old devices are released we should look for aliens viruses.

Yeah. That’s correct you don’t understand this.

So I decided not to post it.

But apparently invites to announcements for MWC announcements appears.

Sony still going strong with new flagship device.

The clock is ticking and they are not even factoring in an alien invasion. Although an alien invasion might save the world, not necessarily the human race...
