Chris Price - from serial scammer to the people's hero!
#1
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.

https://www.christopherprice.net/yeah-i-...-4096.html

TL;DR:
"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:

Nice observations, Nathan.  And thanks for starting a new thread.   "The Empire" was getting long in the tooth. 

I don't think there is any worry about taking the article down, as the creature wallows in a mire of self-aggrandizement.  

If you can summon the stomach fortitude to check out his Twitter feed, you'll see that he is a blight on the nation (USA) and any unfortunate company he does business with (thanks for the funding, Kickstarter backers!).  

As you pointed out, the level of hypocrisy is deafening.

Wow. I was totally wondering who was behind the recall no one has heard of or cares about for a brand of car I didn't even know still existed. Guess I was busy reading the news about all the awful things that idiot you voted for is doing. Great job Chris!

This is the longest he's ever gone without spewing lies to his backers, ahemmm victims. I guess he's too busy with his newfound political activism and taking part in big change in the auto industry.

Remember all those pretty signs he made for that booth? Guess that's not being released! Another product to add to the infographic but I don't even have a name for that one.

Well, after 3 years and almost 6 months, Christopher Price finally went dark.

It seems the charade is over. Our beloved CEO has closed the doors, stopped responding, and rode off into the sunset with $80,000 of stolen Kickstarter money. Well done Chris, you successfully scammed thousands of people.

He's very active on Reddit recently:

https://www.reddit.com/user/chrisprice

Currently whining about Sprint not unlocking his Essential phones (which he bought at a steal for his eBay business). This is after him whining about how RingPlus discontinued their free service and how much they "owe" him.

Funny things to complain about for the CEO of a company that advises Fortune 500 companies, don't you think?

This thread (https://www.reddit.com/r/Sprint/comments...al_phones/) is a microcosm of his MO:

Bloviating about his influence and knowing people in high places? Check.
Technical jargon? Check.
Technical jargon that he has no clue about? Check, check.
Technical jargon that he has no clue about and about which he manages to be completely and utterly wrong about? Check, check, check.

LOL.

edit: this is quite the gem

Quote: To be clear, I think it may be an NVM issue in the firmware of the phone that has to be flashed at the factory. So, the hardware side of the software. The baseband firmware that is literally hand-fed to each device on the line.

Modern phone unlocking works a lot like the nuclear launch codes. There's a unique code on the server, and a unique code in the silo (or in this case, the device). This makes it impossible to create an unlock keygen or fake UICC Unlock server, because you have a OTK scenario. No generator can work around that, because it requires a second algorithm you have no way of knowing.

I think many of these (the "fire sale batch") of PH-1's did not get the right challenge codes flashed into them in the factory. Possibly because, to meet the Sprint demand, they may have pulled global PH-1's and rapidly reflashed them to Sprint, which would have meant programming them with new MEIDs, and needing to change the carrier unlock challenge code.

That would explain why some people got working PH-1's, that were originally baked for Sprint, and others got reflashed global PH-1's that were rapidly repurposed for Sprint, and aren't unlocking. All four of my impacted phones were on backorder. Reading through the SD thread, most people who are having issues were on the backorder side - further isolating the batch.

If I'm right, the Sprint UICC Unlock server is sending the right code. The affected PH-1s just don't have the right codebook stored in its baseband to accept the unlock code as valid. Not easy to fix in the field.

Also just checked the Kickstarter page and it appears that he's managed to scrub the main page of the previous lies.

It now says:

Quote:We started as the first commercial effort to bring Android to the PC. We're still at it, now on GitHub rebuilding - combining the best of the open-source world, with cutting-edge commercial drivers, licensed from Intel. (Console.com.co)

He's not bothering to reply to his "backers", but takes the effort to scrub the intro, and rewrite history.

Still rebuilding. Still burning that midnight oil. Hard at work.

That's awesome.   He'd like everyone to forget the crime ever happened.
