That's a funny world we live in, when manufacturers need to add a screen to decrease the price of products.
When it first launched, Pipo X7 was a $90 mini PC running Windows 8.1 with Bing tablet version, but Microsoft did not approve since that version is reserved for products with a 7″ screen or smaller, and now Pipo X7 sells for around $120 because it includes a $25 license for Windows 8.1 with Bing ...

Will you be able to sync music across multiple devices/rooms with this?  There are plenty of cheap streaming dongles, but few can match sonos as a whole-house solution.  Any idea on pricing?

More info on Intel Compute Stick (ICS) ...

1. BIOS has a setting to select OS with options of either [Ubuntu 14.04 LTS 64-bit] or [Windows 8.1 32-bit] (and a note stating that the default value is set to the operating system that has been installed at the factory and that no other operating systems are supported by the BIOS) ... so does this mean the ability to switch between a 32-bit bootloader and a 64-bit one?

2.  BIOS supports BIOS recovery ... so 'bricking' becomes impossible?

3.  There is only one USB port ... but it is full-sized!

4.  The Intel Compute Stick will boot up automatically when power is applied ... thereby removing most of the issues when the device is powered from a TV and located behind it.

Windows ICS User guide has just been posted here http://download.intel.com/support/motherboards/desktop/stck1a32wfc/sb/stck1a32wfc_eng_userguide01.pdf and BIOS info can be found http://download.intel.com/support/motherboards/desktop/sb/biosglossarycomputestickv01.pdf and http://download.intel.com/support/motherboards/desktop/sb/recoveryupdateinstructions1.pdf and there is also a quick guide posted http://download.intel.com/support/motherboards/desktop/sb/computestickquickstart01.pdf

What fucking reason to select OS in bios. Is not sufficient a 64 bit uefi for all OS ? Another locked crap device for me.

Recently the USB port of my working laptop is broken. I can not use it without USB because for our development we need to upgrading the image to the board a lot. So i order a sub 100$ mini-ITX bare bone motherboard(with CPU) and a small PC casing online. While waiting for the new PC, i set up my dev unit rock2 sqaure working environment. After the mini-ITX board arrive, i use the memory and SSD from my laptop and install it on the mini-ITX PC. But unforunately, the sub 100$ mother board can not boot anymore suddenly after one day usage(maybe i wired the wrong front panel cable...). So i requested replacement. It takes so many days for them to process it... So i continue to use Rock2 Square as my working PC. After two weeks of using it, here is my report:

My work at radxa is very misc, i need to reply the messages/requests from the website, following up the hardware/software status, projects requests from other companies, need to send the agreements/invoice back and forward. I also need to work on the software development side. Basically Rock2 Square can basically handle all this.

The software i uses daily are:

1. Chromium browser and Iceweasel browser: I use Chromium browser for Gmail, google hangout and googling with vpn extension, i also installed many other extensions such as push bullets. Because there is no ARM version QQ im, which is used a lot in China, i have to use QQ on the phone. I use push bullets to swap information between Rock2 Square and mobile phone. I use Iceweasel browser for local networks such as local git web repository.

2. Mate-Terminal, for development. SSH to the local build server, build the image, scp back and flash to the board with rkflashtool.

3. Libreoffice, to generate invoice, presentation to PDF.

4. Eye of mate image viewer/GIMP photo editor.

Need to point out something:

1. Chromium sometimes fake die, sometimes some tab becomes "He is dead, Jim", this happens more when i am copying big image(1.8G) from network. I usually open a lot of tabs. What am i using is the model A, 2GB ram, which is not enough for nowadays multi tasking.

2. Disk space is limited and slow. 16GB emmc is really not enough, i have to delete the old image before copying the new one or i will get disk full. Scp from network to local emmc is 30MB/s max speed.

3. Response. I can not feel the lag for menus, task switching, opening folders. Loading documents is fast too. The CPU usage is low most of the time.

Conclusion: ARM quad core cortex A12/15/17 can be used as a low power(rock2 square's lowest frequency is 126Mhz), lightweight desktop already. I heard cortex-a72 performance is better than intel i3, so somthing interesting is going on...

Below is the screenshots of Rabian, Debian 8 on Rock2 Square, with mate desktop.

The AR9331 Airmusic firmware sources released by a German company named RaidSonic.
It does seem u-boot and openwrt are there, I didn't tried to build the u-boot and rootfs myself, so you might want to check everything is there (configs, i2s pcm driver) before getting the device for hacking.

You can also use your Android mini PC as a surveillance camera with a free app.
Some Android mini PCs come with cameras, for example Measy U2C or CS928, but depending on firmware support, most will also take a USB webcam, and the obvious application is for video conferencing with Skype or Google Hangout. But I've just found out an app called “AtHome Video Streamer” can ...

Rockchip  - 
HD audio pass-through added to Rockchip RK3288 based Open Hour Android TV Box. There are limitations though, including a lack of support for Kodi/SPMC for now, but this should be coming too in the near future.

Other platforms such as MINIX NEO X8-H can also support 7.1 channels HDMI pass-though via +VidOn.me XBMC Pro, but it costs $15 per year.
People owning AV receivers capable of outputting 7.1 channels or more have had a hard time finding Android TV boxes that supports HD audio pass-through via HDMI. Many devices can pass through 5.1 codec like DTS or Dolby Digital (AC3 / E-AC3), but so far, none of the boxes I've tried could manage ...

AMLogic  - 
Geniatech​ TV box based on Amlogic S805 processor with DVB-T2 or ATSC.
The DVB function is apparently part of Kodi 14.1, and the box can also stream digital TV (e.g. free-to-air TV) to mobile devices.
One of the first quad core Android DVB-T2 receiver was VideoStrong K1 that now sells for $80 on Aliexpress, but there's now some competition from Geniatech, with the same Amlogic S805 processor, thanks to Mygica ATV586 Android TV box featuring either a DVB-T2 or ATSC tuner.

Possible all-in-one RTL-SDR radio, if the DVB-T tuner is RTL2832U...I'll have to look into this!
