I'm not quite sure why the iRiver IHP-120/140s didn't do FLAC out of the box. They supported some other specialty goodies(line level and optical in and out) that required more hardware and are probably even more esoteric; and they had ogg vorbis support, so it's not like they were MP3 only or wedded to whatever Microsoft was pushing at the time(the 300 series, though, leaned dangerously in that direction).

Luckily rockbox support is quite good on those models, which takes most of the pain away. LCD isn't good enough to do Doom justice, however.

If memory serves, the original logic behind the existence of this thing was dissatisfaction with Twitter jerking around 3rd party client developers in order to ensure that their freeloading peasants were exposed to enough advertising and had suitably limited control over layout, presentation, etc.

This service was going to be the one where developers came first and you were the customer, not the product. As far as I know that part of the vision was delivered; it just turns out that demand for "Like twitter, except basically empty" isn't all that robust, no matter how nice the service is.

Its not 25% of the price though. Not sure where you got that from. The benchmark Intel cpu that AMD is competing against is the I7-7700K, which is $350 on Amazon. It will be the AMD 6-core against that one.

AMD will also be able to compete against Intel's i3's. An unlocked Ryzen *anything* (say, the 4-core ryzen) will be the hands-down winner against any Intel i3 chip on the low-end. Intel will have to either unlock the multipliers on all of its chips to compete, or pump up what they offer in their i3-* series.

The AMD 8-core is probably not going to be a competitive consumer chip.
