Every now and then I'll check in to see if there's ANY update whatsoever about Chris Price honoring his Kickstarter commitments even though it has been obvious for years that he is nothing more than a silmy con artist. In a recent search I came across a Wikipedia entry:


I have made some effort to clean up the lies and call him out (e.g. "The number of employees and size of his company is unknown" - a very creative spin on "his company has no known employees ever"), but I can't possibly compete with the crowd. I hope anyone reading this who has frustration with not only being ripped off but the completely brazen and remorseless manner in which he has done so will be encouraged to contribute with citations where possible. More citations = less likelihood of being removed as fabrication or idle slander.

  Chris Price - from serial scammer to the people's hero!
Posted by: nathanchere - 11-12-2017, 12:55 PM - Forum: ConsoleOS Rip-Off Open Forum - Replies (12)

Great news guys! Looks like we were wrong about Chris Price all along. Poor bloke was just misunderstood when really all he wanted to do was look out for the little guy.


"This is the story of how I did my part to make sure GM was accountable for that mistake"
[blah blah blah]
"Millions (in expenses correcting a mistake) is accurate, and what they should have done on their own in the first place. But at least we as a community got it done"

I think this is a very clear message to his ConsoleOS fans and admirers. He is so overwhelmingly riddled with guilt that he needs our help as a community to make things right.

Seriously, the balls on this turd!

I've also made sure this is saved on archive.org so his bold face hypocrisy is preserved should he decide to take it down:

  Thousand dollar backer comment
Posted by: expsych - 04-27-2017, 04:58 AM - Forum: ConsoleOS Rip-Off Open Forum - Replies (4)

Just thought I would post this recent comment from a thousand dollar backer of Chris's project:

Dave Constant on April 16
Good morning.
I've not posted publicly as the developers were keeping in regular contact when I had questions.
My most recent message has gone unanswered and the console os web forums are nothing but spam.
I understand taking a risk when backing a project, and that many people will not worry about the loss of $10 USD.
For the three of use who pledged over $1,000 USD we are paying attention, and desire results for everyone,
Do you wish to comment on the status of your web forums?
Do you wish to comment on the possibility of refunds for all backers?
We look forward to you public reply.

  Price the stalker
Posted by: Phuckit - 03-20-2017, 11:50 AM - Forum: ConsoleOS Rip-Off Open Forum - Replies (2)

Was bored screwing around on XDA and came across some of Chris prices old posts. This one cracked me up. He says he hired a private investigator to track down Mike Reid (the android hu app guy) because he stopped responding to him. Kind of funny considering awhile back Price accused people of stalking him because they were posting info they found through simple google searches, but Price goes full blown stalker and uses a private eye. What a kook lol.

Wouldn't let me post the screenshot in first post so included as an attachment.

Maybe backerx can fix original post. Posting images never worked for me properly and he always had to go back in to fix them lol

  Oregon Justice Department investigates another failed Kickstarter
Posted by: sortan - 10-05-2016, 12:23 PM - Forum: ConsoleOS Rip-Off Open Forum - Replies (2)

Some of you may remember the "Coolest Cooler". I don't remember if this was posted here or not.

In any case, apparently they are under investigation by the Oregon Justice Department.

Keep in mind that this seems to more a case of people being in over their head rather than outright fraud (like our dear friend Christopher's project).

Interestingly, it only took about 200-300 complaints.

  Update 39
Posted by: xxlariusxx - 08-01-2016, 10:21 AM - Forum: ConsoleOS Rip-Off Open Forum - Replies (10)

I haven't parsed this yet, just wanted to post it in case he makes it Backer only. 

We're Headed to IDF!

We apologize for the repeated delays. As we'll explain, it's good news all around though forConsole, Inc. - and for our backers!

First, Android on Intel - An Update

We've held a lot of meetings with Intel over the past few weeks. We had the same concerns that many have had lately about the state of Android on Intel.

While we can't answer all questions today, we can say that Intel has assured us, and we can in turn assure the community, that Intel remains committed to Android. There certainly have been, and certainly will still be, some bumps in the road along the way.

To recap the news that is public, Intel will skip Android support for its upcoming "Broxton" line of Intel Atom processors. But, the Intel Atom "Cherry Trail" processor fully supports the same I/O (including USB-C with USB 3.1, and even DisplayPort mode), and will be built on a long-life basis over the next 24 months. We expect to keep making devices on Cherry Trail, until the successor to Broxton emerges.

Right now, we're sure the big question on your minds is about Nougat. Will Intel support Nougat on their chips? And in the FOSS community?

We can't answer specific questions on that today, other than to say some Intel Atom chips will be supported by Nougat. The Google Nexus Player, for example, which is powered by an Intel Atom "Moorefield" processor, will be upgraded to Nougat.

But, it is true, Intel is temporarily pulling back Android support. They've been up-front with the media, and with us, about that. That means a lot of Android devices may not see Nougat. We're trying to make sure that the devices that we're building, that depend on Nougat, will make the cut.

Intel has shared with us their timetable, and we in turn are working with multiple partners in the Intel ecosystem to make sure that Intel's support of Android strategically aligns with all the goals of both the IoT community, as well as companies like ours that are still committed to making great Android mobile devices with Intel processors.

To this end, we have started to take Console OS temporarily offline. We still hope to keep to our current plan of shipping a FOSS-friendly, stable Marshmallow release later this summer. We won't be able to decide about the future of Console OS beyond that, until after Nougat's source code is publicly available (and despite some broadly-held misconceptions, the source code for future Android releases is not fully posted, until after the final release is pushed out the door by Google).

And, consistent with our last update, we will offer backers multiple options as we pivot to focusing on hardware. If we decide to stop making Console OS, we'll offer you the chance to request a refund - or something better, your call.

Console Developer Rewards - It floats!

A famous David Letterman sketch was "Will it Float?" - where David Letterman out of the blue, would drop objects into water, and see if they sink, or swim.

When Intel pulled back on Intel support for Android, we weren't sure if it was the end. So, we held off onConsole Developer Rewards. To recap, it's our initiative that funds FOSS developers in the community, to squash bugs and build out features on a bounty basis.

Our first full round was rolled out last month, along with a new open-source project called the OpenHU Project. A key developer, Mike Reid, tragically passed away, and we were working with him on his Android projects. One of them was very key to an upcoming device that we are well into developing. We were in contact with Mike up to the day he went to hospital, and tragically, he died suddenly.

As the story goes, right after he passed away, Google beamed down a GMS update that broke his hard work. So, we put up a $10,000 bounty to fix it. One developer, Emil Borconi, answered the call. And while Emil decided to decline the reward, we're planning on making a sizeable donation to Emil's continuation project, and we also plan to roll up / wind down the OpenHU project into that effort.

We didn't share any of this in an update previously, because we didn't feel it was worth sharing without some conclusions. In memory of Mike Reid, we've kept going, and the product that we showed him before he passed away, built atop his FOSS contributions, is something we're excited to be announcing in the near future.

This first cycle of Console Developer Rewards was a great learning experience. It showed that small amounts of money can galvanize communities, and bring attention to underserved FOSS projects. In other words, Console Developer Rewards definitely floats.

After our summer announcements, we hope to roll out a new round, and with Intel's commitments, assuming we can keep building Console OS, we expect to focus on Android-x86 in the next wave. Yep, that means rewarding Android-x86.org developers, with cash, for their hard work.

Onward to IDF

Originally, our plan was to unveil our next wave of announcements this week. But, at the last minute, Intel graciously decided to offer us a kiosk at the Intel Developer Forum, kicking off August 16th.

So, we're going to align our announcements closer to that date. But this is great news for us. Actually, it's the first time we've ever exhibited at an Intel Developer Forum. It's one small way that Intel is demonstrating a commitment to Android.

A lot of startups follow the "fail fast" methodology. As we enter year two of this Kickstarter, we certainly have defied that model.

It has been an interesting, challenging, painful, fun, and stressful two years.

So, kicking off this second year - we're going to echo our last update's promise, because it's an important one. We'll do what it takes to do right by all of you, even if it means refunding those that think we haven't done enough, despite the pullback in silicon support. We wouldn't be here without you.

Thumbs Up The Chilling Fields
Posted by: BackerX - 07-19-2016, 11:20 PM - Forum: ConsoleOS Rip-Off Open Forum - Replies (2)

It's such a treat to know that Christopher Price has scoured every paragraph of this little project.  Welcome, huckster!  Ever thought about getting a job and repaying the Kickstarter Backers you ripped off?  Anyway...

It looks like everyone's favorite never-do-well is hard at work doing whatever he does, including submitting a flurry of DMCA requests; targeting Google search results. 

The Chilling Effects Project reports:



My favorite is where he claims ownership of the reddit content, claiming his writing constitutes an article.  Unless I'm missing something, which is always a strong possibility.

  Meetups dead. Backers have options! ConsoleOS going Experimental.
Posted by: BackerX - 07-06-2016, 01:37 AM - Forum: ConsoleOS Rip-Off Open Forum - Replies (21)

A broadcast message for those backers who, at CP's urging, signed up at  Meetups.com, back in the days of naivety.  As for events, there never was one.  No news.  No events.  

I imagine, just a whole bunch of backer money spent on car payments and a trip to Spain. And then there were the Carl's Jr. and Soda Stream expenditures.

Hi all, this is Christopher Price, Console, Inc.'s founder and CEO. 

As we announced last month, we've entered into a deal with Teclast to
bring some new, innovative Android devices to the United States. We're
focused on making the software and specs great, and they're focused on
making sure the hardware is built great. 

You can read more about that announcement on our home page:
http://console.com.co/ [1] 

We haven't forgotten our Kickstarter backers, who will be given multiple
options, and we have moved Console OS to experimental status, as Intel
has pulled back support in the Android space of late. 

Because of these changes, and dramatic price hikes at Meetup, we're
folding up our Meetup page, at least for now. We plan to use Eventbrite
for upcoming events. 

To be notified of future events - you need to sign up to our mailing
list! Follow this link to do so [2]. Thanks!
