The first thing I did was look and see what it had for GPIOs with a small hope that it might even be at some level compatible with the RPi.
None? I might as well buy a cheap mini-itx board.
While I would love more horsepower for some projects I need GPIO's, I2C and SPI for interfacing.
This one's a non starter and certainly doesn't destroy the RPi and as others have pointed out it has no community support whatsoever.
>If these rumored specs are correct then the Pixel phone will be a winner.
The specs may be good but who the heck wants a phone branded 'Pixel'?
It sounds like it should be a childs toy or a Disney movie.
Nexus is cool, Pixel is just lame.

>One of the main reasons I LIKE email is that it gives the sender time to organize their thoughts. Much better than listening to some user or boss hem and haw and backtrack and contradict themselves wasting endless minutes of my life.
And if my mod points hadn't just expired I'd mod you up.
Instead - +1000
And a range of 10 centimeters.
So you're saying she's the perfect running mate for Drumpf?
And why looking at individual data points can mislead you.
I want the right to forget.
So when I see a politician, country, company or individual I don't like I can request that their presence be erased from the internet.
It makes as much sense as the right to be forgotten.
Linux users do NOT want to launch everything from a browser.
Ditch the stand alone launcher and the need for the browser.
I want standalone programs for hangouts and chromecasting and that is all.
I already don't like the overhead of chrome and it's crappy interface and I'm getting
fed-up with the crashes and arbitrary chrome and hangout resets when I do leave them running.
Make good programs, not crappy do everything browsers.
Instead of auto-refresh have something like Google+ uses. A small oval pop-down that says 'x new posts' that you can click on to refresh.
We need another choice:
I start out with it clean and by the end of a project it's messy.
The Radio Amateurs Handbook published by the American Radio Relay League.
It along with the CRC were every electrical engineers bible when I went to school.
I no longer have a copy of the CRC but I do have a 25th anniversary issue (1948) of the Handbook from before my time. (not much though)
a few years ago I didn't care much about work/life balance. Working long hours at
something I loved (embedded development) was what I wanted.
But, the longer I worked the less important work became and the
more important other things did.
The companies I worked for still wanted extra hours (salaried of
course so they didn't have to pay extra) and overriding dedication.
My observation is that the more the work force aged and became
more balanced between young go-getters and older experienced
programmers the less desire there has been to be that dedicated.
Some do, but overall it's not as important.
Now that I'm retired I'm still loving the programming side, but I get to do what I want, and all the other things that make life worthwhile.
On the other hand, if for some reason you phone number changes, bye-bye account.
