Subscribe to hear project updates and be notified when crowdfunding goes live! What is this? This is a smartphone, with a Raspberry Pi Zero at its heart. It's open-source*, Linux-powered and you can make one yourself for 50$! *except some parts, replacing which would make it crazy expensive. Why?

A VC-managed start-up with excellent marketing, design, and sales... but lacks real engineering and manufacturing capabilities.

"The lawsuit alleged that Lily did not have a single prototype that functioned as advertised at the time of the launch video’s filming. Instead, it claimed Balaresque and Bradlow brought non-functioning models to the shoot for "beauty shots," while the first-person angles that supposedly came from the Lily Camera were actually shot by GoPro units that had been strapped to the robot."

Spent so much time on cheating (Intellectual Dishonesty) instead of production:

"Despite assurances from Kremer, Balaresque remained worried that people would still be able to tell it was filmed with a GoPro, according to the suit. In another email to Kremer, he wrote: “I am worried that a lens geek could study our images up close and detect the unique Gopro lens footprint. But I am just speculating here: I don't know much about lenses but I think we should be extremely careful if we decide to lie publicly." "

I used to see this all the time at the Comdex computer conventions in the 90's when people used to tout their wonderful software that could do this and that until you realize that the software isn't running, it's a video. They were touting vaporware, especially in 3D rendering software and video editing software.

Feel free to photo edit whatever you want to say on the picture. For a good viewer experience, please assure the font proportion and lighting look real in the Southern California sunny day as shown in the photo... :-)

A portion of an exit of Interstate 80 in Placer County has been destroyed by recent storms, leaving behind a gaping sinkhole.

beautiful…

Dan Bricklin changed the world forever when he codeveloped VisiCalc, the first electronic spreadsheet and grandfather of programs you probably use every day like Microsoft Excel and Google Sheets. Join the software engineer and computing legend as he explores the tangled web of first jobs, daydreams and homework problems that led to his transformational invention.

Starbuck's: "Let's try it out before implementing it in our stores." :-)
 
My son's class did a Google Hangout today with another first grade class in San Antonio. They played Mystery Number. They gave that class 5 clues to figure out our number and then they did the same.

And I swear I had nothing to do with it. 😃
