  What it truly means to be an Intel Black Belt Developer "ninja"
Posted by: Mary's Goats - 03-11-2016, 03:30 PM - Forum: ConsoleOS Rip-Off Open Forum - Replies (4)

So ya, since CP loves to paste everywhere that he's an Intel Black Belt like it's some meaningful accomplishment, I decided to finally look up what's required to become one. All the information can be found here: https://software.intel.com/en-us/blackbelt


Basically, you need to join the Intel Developer Zone forum community and post stuff. That's it:

   



You move up the ranks in the forum community by collecting points, becoming more and more "esteemed" as you receive your green, brown, red, and black belts:

   



So how do you achieve these points, you might ask. Surely you HAVE TO be a coder and provide legitimate software fixes? Well, here you are:

   

As of this point, 2 years later, we haven't seen a single line of legitimate code that CP has written, modified, or improved himself. Knowing he's quite adept at bending the English language and blogging, he could collect just as many points for doing those things. I am willing to wager that he failed to provide a single code sample during his entire time on the forums.



Tell me more Mary's Goats. What do you receive on your way through the dojo towards a black belt? Trips to conventions? Working with talented developers? Even better:

   



And finally, what do you get by being an Intel Black Belt Software Developer?

   



So there you have it, the Intel Black Belt Developer process. A glorified forum member who doesn't necessarily have to submit any code at all. You just have to know technical "stuff."

  Saint Christopher Price of Chico, CA
Posted by: sortan - 03-10-2016, 09:38 PM - Forum: ConsoleOS Rip-Off Open Forum - Replies (15)

It must be frustrating for Christopher Price to be the only one to keep telling us how awesome he is, so, without further ado, I present a few of the many times poor Christopher has had to remind us:

My favorite: a class act, indeed, for contributing his (innumerable) code to open source:

Quote:Console OS has agreed to do so, most do not. A class act move on their part.

After all his success and contributions to the community, he has not taken one dime more. Bravo!

Quote:We haven't taken a dime from the community since Kickstarter

In spite of the trolls and the constant harassers, he volunteers his time, selflessly, to repeatedly answer questions. A saint indeed!

Quote:Contrary to the belief of some, Kickstarter does not obligate us to answer any questions here... we spend hours each week doing so, because we think it's the right thing to do.

I just want to say, that in spite of how Google and Intel have disgraced themselves by hurling roadblocks at poor Saint Christopher, how proud I am of how Christopher is blazing a new path forward!

And a new one, just today. Despite the venom from android-x86.org he makes android better for everybody out of the goodness of his heart.

Quote:We have made Android on PC better, and we will continue to.

  Something a little different...the Coleco Chameleon
Posted by: JohnMcL7 - 03-10-2016, 10:24 AM - Forum: ConsoleOS Rip-Off Open Forum - Replies (11)

I thought you guys might like this one if you've not seen it, the project has been in the headlines as Coleco have pulled the plug on it but the story behind it is hilarious:

http://www.rosetintedgamers.com/2016/03/...ight-lies/

The final comment is particularly apt for Console OS:

Quote:The moral of this story: Never, EVER try to hoodwink, cheat or lie to a bunch of nerds and geeks with enough technical knowledge to call you out on it.
…And the press are brainless morons who can never be bothered to fact check.

  Just requested that my favorite tech YouTuber do a piece on Console OS
Posted by: Mary's Goats - 03-08-2016, 12:43 AM - Forum: ConsoleOS Rip-Off Open Forum - Replies (2)

I love the tech YouTuber Lon Seidman and his channel Lon.tv. He's really a hidden gem and I'm glad his channel is growing. 

He does great videos, and recently he did one about a retro gaming console crowdfunding scam.

I just requested a video on the Console OS debacle. Chime in if you want to see it, he's using his Reddit page to take requests:

Lightbulb False Copyright Infringement
Posted by: BackerX - 03-07-2016, 12:34 PM - Forum: DMCA Abuse - No Replies

Quote:If you send a DMCA takedown notice that is both false and meant in bad faith (such as to harass, or doesn’t state a real claim), you have committed perjury. Though unlikely, if the party you sent the takedown notice to decided to pursue this in court, you could face all of the consequences that your state imposes on people who lie in court.

  The Questions Thread (aka How to Become a Troll and Get a Refund)
Posted by: sortan - 03-06-2016, 10:54 PM - Forum: ConsoleOS Rip-Off Open Forum - Replies (4)

Let's start a resource for backers who still haven't gotten a refund and would like one. From what I've observed of the Kickstarter moderation, they don't remove questions or (polite) disagreement. They only seem to remove duplicate posts, stuff that uses "bad language" or uses real names of "team members". I'm sure Christopher has tired out his little fingers reporting posts for removal, but he has succeeded in getting very little removed.

So let's start a thread of questions to ask Christopher. Don't ask all the questions at the same time and don't expect any (real) answers, but be polite, be persistent, and perhaps you too can become a troll and get a refund! As a bonus, Christopher may accuse you of "harassment" and violating the "community guidelines".

--------

The Team

  • How many people work on ConsoleOS?
  • How many are in Paris?

ConsoleOS
  • What were some of the "Over 100 new features built-in already" link
  • What are any new features that the ConsoleOS team have added to either Android-IA or Android-x86?
  • What is the status on the ConsoleOS Pro features, including, WindowFlinger (A true window manager for Android), InstaSwitch, Console Remote Access, Native DVR support, Built-in media serving (UPnP and DLNA), Console Files, and Console Maps Pro? Why are these "Pro" features delayed/cancelled by a kernel change?
  • How *exactly* were backer funds spent?
---------

Post more questions, and I'll edit them in. Let's try to keep it fair (no when did you stop beating your wife? questions), because Christopher has given us more than enough material to work with!

Sorry guys, but that was just crazy.  This project should be about doing a little investigation/documentation and hopefully having a laugh along the way.  If we start fighting amongst ourselves, then it becomes kind of pointless.

Also, if you find yourself questioning the motives of the site's admin and mods it's probably time to mosey along.  We like things with as little drama as possible here, and it's been working well for the last.. almost two months. 

Cheers!

Question ConsoleOS thread on Remix OS Google Groups
Posted by: BackerX - 03-04-2016, 11:12 PM - Forum: ConsoleOS Rip-Off Open Forum - Replies (5)

I was digging the Remix OS Alpha release, but ran into some problems with the Beta, so I was looking through the Google Groups forums and came across a ConsoleOS thread.  I had to check it out.  It's weird.  It's written in Prician, in some respects, but then in others, not.  And it seems like a bizarre place to go pick a fight?  But then the OP starts hitting all the CP talking points.  He also seems uncannily knowledgeable about the current and past going-ons with the 'project'.  

I really don't know what to make of it.

Star Sale Contracts and Good Faith
Posted by: BackerX - 03-04-2016, 01:03 AM - Forum: Small Claims - No Replies

This entire site/page is good reading.  

Some highlights:

http://backersmanual.com Wrote:If the crowdfunding transaction has tangible, commensurate rewards offered for pledges, it is classified as a sale transaction and the project creator earns income or revenue from the transaction. The key difference between a crowdfunded transaction versus sale is that the legal transfer of rights and responsibilities over the product is in the future, because the product only ships at a much later date compared to when the money is taken.
http://backersmanual.com/2014/03/16/lega...o-deliver/

Another interesting section elaborates on "Good Faith"
http://backersmanual.com Wrote:Another pertinent clause in Kickstarter’s terms and conditions is:

“Project Creators agree to make a good faith attempt to fulfill each reward by its Estimated Delivery Date.”

Let’s first understand the definition of “good faith”, as from Wikipedia:

“In contract law, the implied covenant of good faith is a general presumption that the parties to a contract will deal with each other honestly and fairly, so as not to destroy the right of the other party or parties to receive the benefits of the contract.”

Because the contracting parties are the project creator and backer, and the contract is a sale, contract law applies. Backers have already fulfilled their part of the contract when the money exchanged hands at the end of the funding campaign. It is now up to the project creator to fulfill his part, in a good faith attempt.
