TV Style Edit: How Acorn Archimedes, ARM and the SoC revolutionized the world +GeorgeAgainstTheMachine spent 60+ hours making this 8 minute video edit https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rc5i6tA3dH0 about the Acorn Archimedes A4000, using clips from my Interviews with Sophie Wilson: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jhwwrSaHdh8 (Part 2: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=re5xAqgKqc0, Part 3: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QqxThgLTLyk) and Steve Furber: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_VYxIaw1kBU talking about how they designed the first ARM Processor and the worlds first System on a Chip (SoC). Looking through my extensive interviews with them both, he was able to edit Sophie Wilson and Steve Furber reminiscing together, TV Documentary style.

I hope somehow I can get my Chromebook Plus before MWC. Seems unlikely, Amazon and B&H don't have any in stock. Samsung seems slow at getting these out to the world. Here's what needs to happen with the OP1 Chromebook platform: (read my whole article at http://armdevices.net/2017/02/18/what-google-needs-to-do-to-make-the-op1-samsung-chromebook-plus-a-massive-success/)
- Make these available worldwide. $299, $349, $449, $549 with different skews from FHD 4GB RAM 32GB Flash to 2400x1600 8GB RAM 128GB Flash. Samsung, Asus, Acer, Lenovo, HP, all need to get in on the OP1 flip platform.
- Make sure the advanced apps people "need on Windows/Mac" work on the Chromebook with OP1, make sure there is 3 perfectly optimized Office apps (Microsoft Office included), 3 perfectly optimized video and image editing apps (should be good enough for semi professionals to do fast rendering smooth 4K video editing and "anything that's done with Photoshop/GIMP"), 3 perfectly optimized Chat/Video-conferencing apps including Skype, Whatsapp, Hangouts, few more "Facebook Messenger", "Snapchat", whatever young people use.. Just make sure there is a good range of very well optimized apps, that will show the way for other developers to also optimize their Android apps for productivity. Have 10 "Nintendo-quality" awesome games work perfectly also, for optional gamepad bluetooth gameplay on large display or with any cheap $10 Type-C to HDMI on a HDTV.
- Nougat multi-window resizable. All the features of Remix OS, Phoenix OS, nicely resizable multi-window Android framework needs to be there.
- App/extension for perfect stylus annotation collaboration, annotate any webpage, any article, any document, and have collaborators over Google Drive. We also need a perfect community for "the annotated web" which might also just be able selecting any text and typing in the annotations on the keyboard. Needs to be ultra smooth and easy to use. Otherwise the stylus is not so usable. If you select any text on any article on any webpage that has a comment section, then that selected section is automatically "quoted" when you type your comment, hit enter to post your comment about that selected quote. Or easily Google+1/tweet/blog, write your comment and link when you highlight a text.
- Maximum dual display (external display) productivity, using Type-C to HDMI dongles/docks, it needs to be super easy to "open link in new highlighted or background tab in other window on other display" or to tab browse on one display while Android multi-window apps run on the other display.
- Android for productivity on these Chromebooks obviously have to be a taster of what can become available with "Android Continuum" once Android super phones dock with external displays using DisplayLink, MHL, Slimport or a Chromecast-Continuum background app with Nougat/Miracast.

Seriously Google, partner with Microsoft, pre-load Microsoft Office with some amount of included free months of trial for Office 365, pre-load Skype, and also partner with Adobe pre-load some perfectly optimized Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Premiere for Android, need to be VERY usable, very optimized for Android productivity and also include the Adobe Creative Cloud trial on there. Do this Google. And people will be impressed. No need to "force people to use Google Drive and Google Photos only", you can bundle free trials for your services too, just make sure the advanced apps people "need on Windows/Mac", that those, even for semi professionals/enthusiasts, that those already work good BUNDLED on Chromebook with OP1. Wanna do even more? Convince Apple to pre-load fully optimized iTunes and Garageband on the Chromebook with OP1 also. Don't know how to convince Apple this is a good idea? Let me know, I'll tell you how. Shame them if they don't.

Fisk Alloy copper alloy wire for connectors and electrical cables Founded in 1973 in Hawthorne, N.J. to manufacture high precision square wire for connectors and electronic components, Fisk Alloy (http://fiskalloy.com) invented PERCON in the 1990ies, a family of environmentally friendly copper alloys combining high conductivity with high tensile strength. The cool thing about PERCON it that it was RoHS compliant well before the EU directive came out.

Fisk Alloy's products can be found in all demanding markets where failure is not an option and who require high performance components: Aerospace, Medical, Robotics, Automotive and E-Textiles.

Fisk Alloy PERCON alloys are so good and homogeneous in their composition that we draw them to ultra-fine gauge sizes, AWG 56 being currently the finest size which corresponds to 12 microns or a third of a human hair. They combine these single-end wires to stranded constructions, 7-ends, 19-ends as well as rope-lay conductors putting up to 1000 single-ends together.

The main advantages of Fisk Alloy PERCON alloys are superior flex life for all cables in movement, excellent softening resistance when exposed to high temperatures as well as opportunities for size and weight saving thanks to great strength without sacrificing conductivity. A few years ago they invented Percon 28, unique in its capability of combining 80 KSI tensile strength with 85% electrical conductivity in a soft-annealed condition. No other alloy world-wide is able to match these properties.

E-textiles is an ideal market for PERCON and especially Percon 28, as their wire can be woven, knitted and embroidered invisibly into the fabric, allowing signal transmission for various data-sensing and monitoring purposes.
