Re: Pure Devices - RPi based appliance

my 10p worth for some one who isn't part of the Pure team why are you posting such feedback to people with the detail you do.. I don't know how I can prove I'm not a part of the Pure Devices team other than to say I live on the south coast of england and the Pure team is in seattle. That would be o...

Re: Pure Devices - RPi based appliance

I refuse to get into an argument with you about the Apple company. I have no problem with the company only those who hold them up like idols and expect all to worship. You think Jobs was so visionary because he talked of something like the cloud computing model back in 1997. I suggest you look furth...

Re: Pure Devices - RPi based appliance

Cloud for example, its the latest buzz word, lets add that investors will love that, just like in the good old ".com" days, that was the buzz work back in the late 1990s./ Yes and we all know how .com completely disappeared into complete obscurity never to be seen again. Cloud may indeed be a buzz ...

Re: Pure Devices - RPi based appliance

:oops: I just re-read your post slowly and you're right I did misunderstand your keyboard point. I think it's fair to say we both agree on the need for a keyboard though. Anyone watching me try to send a text message to my wife on my touch-screen phone would agree I need a full size keyboard too. Es...

Re: Pure Devices - RPi based appliance

@rurwin I can totally see where you're coming from with your comments. As I've previously stated I'm not a part of the project so cannot vouch for the interface but hopefully they will provide at least a couple of USB ports for connection of devices such as the Visionboard2 keyboard (http://www.touc...

Re: Pure Devices - RPi based appliance

@DexOS Hi DexOS I'm not a part of this project but I have been aware of it for some time and I've been a member of the RPi forums even longer. Firstly let me point out that Pure Devices are not a 20 strong team, just look at the photo. There are 12 of them (13 if you count the baby). Secondly they m...

Re: Barebones Pi

<r>I'd like to see a future version of the Pi available as a barebones board where instead of the connectors (USB, RJ45, HDMI, Audio etc) it has PCB headers allowing people to easily add (or leave out if not needed) their own off-board sockets which could then be enclosure mounted. This would mean t...
