I'd say I've got an above average vocabulary of the English language (for a Dutchy), but in just a few pages +Neal Stephenson has taught me at least ten new ones.

Where does the name "Arch" come from?
I've searched the wiki, looked in the forum, queried the interwebs and asked my TuxDroid robot, but no answer yet.
Which makes me even more curious.. :)

Bonus question: what's the idea behind the logo?

Interesting to see what's comes into building a smartphone.
Quite some money goes to taxes and patents/royalties for instance.
Oh, and 70 prototypes were made for certification and testing, some of which will be destroyed in the process. Oh, the humanity!
 
First Fairphone Cost Breakdown - At last!
The long-awaited, much-hyped "Cost Breakdown".

Tee-hee, I just added a complete island to my city on #openstreetmap .  It bothered me that that bit was missing for months now so I went out with my lovely little +Fairphone, did some GPS tracking, then some fiddling with the chart online and voila, one up-to-date map.
Gotta love open and editable source.. :)

This (see video) is the price of many electronics.
For electronics there isn't much of a fair trade business going on, but at least we're becoming aware of the issues.
