Ah no, sorry Rockchip, I meant Allwinner. Rockchip also sucks though. Freescale all the way.
Cubieboard is much more interesting, at least all the pins leading to the SoC are populated on the board, including headers for IR, FM Radio, S-PDIF, SATA and a bunch of GPIO.
CedarX doesn't support any of the standard Android video deocoding APIs, so any media players that use it have to be compiled against an undocumented, closed-source library. It seems that Rockchip is hostile toward open source. The kernel that's developed by the arm-netbook community is NOT supported by Rockchip, and kernel source has actually been coming from vendors and the community. http://linux-sunxi.org/CedarX
The issue wasn't the number of worker suicides, but the fact that they died on Foxconn property. Don't compare this incident to the suicide rate of the general population, instead compare the number of suicides per manufacturing facility. Suicide's fine, but it is NOT normal to commit suicide at work.
