  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.

  First reviews of backers
Posted by: Backer - 02-29-2016, 11:43 AM - Forum: ConsoleOS Rip-Off Open Forum - Replies (9)

Things which work great
1) WIFI
2) Audio
3) Touch Screen
4) Mouse Pad
5) USB Attached Peripherals like mouse , keyboard

Issues / Bugs
1) None of the applications work. All of them crash when opened. This includes the bundeled gallery app.
2) Any application downloaded via the amazon store crashes too.
3) When i try to play video in the webbrowser at m.youtube.com, only the audio plays and not the video.
4) Keyboard on display does not appear at all.

Works great and smooth, but still there is a long way to go.
I would say I am happy with the way it looks. But after waiting for an year and half I expected it to be better.

Also the applications on DR1 used to work without crashes. So what do we do now ?


Well, I thought copy and paste would be easy enough for Mr. Price.

Maybe I was wrong ;-)

  Doing it right -> Phoenix OS and Remix OS
Posted by: Backer - 02-28-2016, 01:51 AM - Forum: ConsoleOS Rip-Off Open Forum - Replies (6)

Hi fellow ex-backers,

I was quite happy to read following message from the creator of Android-X86:

Source -> https://groups.google.com/forum/#!topic/...rzO0Qa3w4U

Quote:Hi all, 
As you may have read the announcement on both sites, 
Android-x86 partners with Remix OS now. 

http://www.android-x86.org/changelog/partnership 
http://www.jide.com/en/remixos-for-pc/announcement 

For those who are curious, let me give more details 
why and how we make the partnership. 


Jide Technology, the creator of Remix OS, has contacted 
me in about Sep 2015 for the cooperation. 
In the early Nov 2015, one month after Android-x86 5.1-rc1 
released, they sent me a preview iso of Remix OS for PC 
based on the 5.1-rc1. I was surprised they made it so quickly. 

In the mid Nov 2015, two co-founders of Jide met me 
at Taipei to exchange more ideas about the cooperation. 
Later in the end of Nov when I visited Beijing, 
I was invited to Jide's office to give a talk to the RD team. 
I was surprised they have a so big, smart and energetic team. 
After that, Jide engineers joined the devel group 
to co-work with other developers. They have submitted 
some valuable patches to the Android-x86 codebase. 

Last week after the CNY holidays, I was invited to Jide office 
again. During the meetings in the 4 days, we reached a very 
detailed cooperation plan including new designed website, 
prioritized working items and marketing promotion. 
Moreover, we see the same vision that Android will 
enter or even dominate the PC desktop in the future. 
We hope to make it happen as quicker as possible. 
We agreed to announce the partnership on MWC 2016. 

Jide Technology will continue to contribute improvements of 
Remix OS under the x86 BSP level, say, the kernel and hals. 
Later I'll post the detailed tasks to the devel group 
so other developers can follow and co-work together. 


Besides, I was also invited to visit Chaozhuo Technology, 
the creator of Phoenix OS(x86) in Beijing. 
Though they are a smaller group, they also show 
sincere intention to work with the community 
to improve Android UX on the desktop. 
I think they will also make good contributions in the future. 


What I hope to say is the Jide and Chaozhuo Technology 
shows a very good example how the commercial companies 
can co-work and contribute an open source project 
like Android-x86. 
I believe they will move forward this project to a totally 
different level than before in the near future. 


Let's make it!

After all Mr. Price was maybe the first one who had the idea of a commercial Android for PC distribution, but it is ironic that he failed so dramatically and others get the fruits of success.

Often history shows us that people, which are deceptive and ruthless, mostly win.

Apparently these attributes combined with incompetence luckily don`t succeed.

Poor Mr. Price... everything lost except a few thousand bugs, which are probably already spent.

  Coming This Month: Developer Rewards. Of course it's not!!

Well, with one more day in February, the "Coming Next Month: Console Developer Rewards" Christopher Price updated on January 2 isn't actually coming to fruition. 55 days later, nothing.

Not like anyone expected it anyways. No one gives a fuck about Console OS.
