Warning: yahoo users postings might be lost

Summary: email sent by users with mailboxes held by yahoo may have their email disappear.

This may be mail to a mail list (such as this one) their mail list postings may
not be received by other yahoo users and also gmail users & a few others.

Yahoo made changes without warning and have caused a huge on-line discussion by
mailing list operators.

Yahoo broke email lists.

This is because at the start of the week Yahoo changed their DMARC settings to
ask servers that receive a message with a yahoo.com email address in the From:
line to reject it if it isn't properly signed by yahoo, which all messages they
send will be.

Basically, Yahoo has said that it users are not supposed to use any
mailing list configured in the manner that they are often configured in.

There are several possible workarounds, but none of them satisfactory.
Discussion continues.

See:

Microsoft



Microsoft plans to give windows 8.1 licenses for free (or at least I undestand so)for certain devices. These are tablets under 9" and what is more interesting windows embedded and certain windows for IOT (internet of things) that is suppose to be released this spring (but I dont really understand what is it).

In best case scenario hardware like EOM68 you make will have more opportunities. But since this is Microsoft I suppose there is a catch somewhere, probably they plan to charge cloud or something else.

MIPI?

what does it mean for EOMA that small high res displays are switching to
MIPI?

Context: I was chating to some techys and that was a problem with the
display interface of EOMA but then I think I said eoma was lvds when
it's this rbg/ttl thing. I got confused. I did say eoma was rbg/ttl
later but I didn't get a reply regarding that so I don't know. I don't
know what I'm talking about hardware wise. (I did tell them.).

hmm, I guess more people will get emotional attached to rpi. :(

 not bad though.  what you got that in - blender?

Sketchup, Have not made that many flight hours in blender to be fast enough.
 

 i kinda like it.  it'd have a deliberately chunky feel, easy to hold.
 thickness would be around 12mm, unless you left the back of the CPU
card exposed (then you get about 2mm back).

Well I made a "window" gap. So you can see which card/battary is in it and to help with heat dissipation

 ... and all of those, being rather power-hungry

Did you mean the generic Wifi sticks or the cell-service sticks?

Because for the EOMA card we have to stick with the usb-wifi either externally or internally.
 
, if the battery is
interchangeable as well then that's absolutely fine because people can
consider carrying around a 2nd battery.  or get an "extended" one
specially for those circumstances.

 true.  or usb memory stick.  etc.

 yeah i know.  we need people to place orders for CPU cards.  and quickly.

I had the idea lingering for weeks and finally found the time/energy to put it work. So buying an eoma card is not really beneficial to me or you, other than funding, at the moment. And I can afford to buy it as shelf filling at the moment.

How about promoting it on the Sunxi mailinglist/wiki. They sprouted from here so why not?

Re: 7inch Tablet Layout suggestion

this from max speransky, way to go max!  (remember you need to send
from a subscribed address - this bounced but was cool enough i thought
i'd send it on manually).

Hi guys,

Interesting topic raise, i'm new to list but also have my own vision,
how EOMA-68 can be used. Even made physical scaled prototype )
Here is a link to github, there are SCAD design sources, ready for 3d printing,
https://github.com/idepositbox/thecan

Still in evaluation phase with investors, so no actual orders just
poking around various designs.

7inch Tablet Layout suggestion

L.S.

Just put some thoughts to paper.

http://imgur.com/a/z98zJ

Just a mock-up, nothing thoroughly engineered

Notes:
1. Make the battery exchangeable.
2. Reuse cheap cellphone batteries (mass produced) in adapter sleeves.
2. Make the network interface exchangeable.
3. Make adapter sleeves for the most common cellphone batteries.

Some benefits:
- Batteries have differing lifespans than screens/cpu's/network systems.
- Battery technology evolves rapidly.
- Every new cellphone has a different battery format. Cheap sleeves can be made to accommodate the cheapest available battery.
- Wireless/Wired network technologies are abundand and evolve rapidly.
- The wifi dongle can be exchanged with a wired variant
- The wifi dongle can be exchanged with an new network technology bg/n/ac 5ghz channels etc
- The wifi dongle can be exchanged with an roaming network service, 2G, 2.5G, 3G, 4G.
- The wifi dongle does not need to be pre bundeled. User can choose his/hers own
- The wifi dongle can be exchanged with a usb camera low or highend

The bottom USB slots can be used as a connector for charging stations, docking stations, keyboard docks, dual screen, etc.

P.S. It's been awfully quite around here.....

Kr, Mike

ICE xPC Modular Computer

There's a project whose concept is somewhat similar to EOMA-68, but they 
are using Intel bay trail CPUs for now.
That's the Indiegogo page with all details: 
http://igg.me/at/icecomputer/x/1760545
For a summary, you can check my blog: 
http://www.cnx-software.com/2014/01/19/ice-xpc-modular-x86-computer-is-as-small-as-a-smartphone-crowdfunding/

The campaign perks may be delivered too late in the future to be 
successful, but it's yet another project with modular CPU boards.
