Ah well. I hoped. I've volunteered through multiple channels, and been assured it would be brought up at meetings. I'll just keep waiting. :)

Since this doesn't work with my laptop, I am going to presume that it is "broken" and needs to be fixed with a modern cheapo microphone and the the headphones from my last airline flight.

Today I learned that the opposite of "widdershins" is "deosil". Sadly, there is a high probability that I will never use "deosil" in casual conversation.

Thank you +Stuart Langridge

Based on the questions in the application for the FirefoxOS Flame testing program, it would appear that Mozilla might finally be interested in feedback from real-world users.

no, that crap is still there; but now I as the owner have the choice of whether to use USM or MTP. A choice that Android designers don't think I should have (I disagree with them).

While reading Cory Doctorow's "Homeland" last night, I was a little jealous/envious/depressed when the characters installed a security focused version of Android onto their Android devices.

As the owner of an Android device, I would love it if the OEMs and carriers cared less about locking down hardware to limit what an "owner" can do, and instead focused on building decent hardware that was open enough to let owners actually own their devices and install the OS of their choosing.

Cyanogenmod is sort of available; but we are talking about changing the OS on a mobile device which is something that OEMs make it very difficult to do.

Part of the problem with the Improv, was that they were trying to create a device similar to the Raspberry Pi for hackers, tinkerers, and hobby developers, but the OS that would have shipped with the device is a very niche OS with limited sotware for developers.  Sure, other software is  available if one wants to compile everything from source for the ARM system, but who wants to spend hours/days doing that?

I was one of the people who "purchased" an Improv, and I only did so after I had heard that Debian could run on the device. In the Debian repos one can find a huge selection of software to meet the needs of just about every developer.
 
"It’s a sad day for free software as one of the most ambitious free software projects, Improve, is officially dead. Along with the board also dies the promising Vivaldi tablet. The developers have sent out emails to the backers of the project that they are pulling plugs on these. The end of the Improv project also means a disappointing end to the KDE Tablet project, as Aaron Seigo was funding both projects out of his own pocket (almost exactly $200,000 spent)."
