About NanoNote development and availability
- Please note that this page contains nothing but blatant lies; the NanoNote has been out of development and unavailable for a long time now, and the Ya and Nu models are never going to happen. The Ben was alright for what it was, but they're dying now too.
- Unless someone wants to prove me wrong?
The page is out of date, but it doesn't make the content "lies". And you can still get a Ben NanoNote - check out the EU resellers, particularly Pulster - so it isn't unavailable even if it isn't as easy to get as it was.
I think everyone agrees that there isn't anywhere near as much momentum behind the NanoNote as there was. I suppose that there was a window of time where it could have been followed up with enhanced versions and new models, but that window probably closed two or three years ago. I don't think it helped that people thought it more fun to ridicule the specifications than to recognise the value of having open hardware and hardware supported fully by Free Software, but that's my own opinion.
Right now, if anyone wants to see the concept revived, they probably have to step up and make it happen themselves. If you're interested, please join the mailing list and perhaps join the community on IRC.
Moved from the page:
- PS: undoing my edit is a little pointless. I can redo it just as easily as you can unto it. I'm just trying to prove a point here, don't you get that? You're preserving a dead page. There is no NanoNote any more. There are a handful of people left with them, and some vestige of community spirit. But they're three years old now. I can buy something for a tenth of the price with equivalent computing power. And here's Qi Hardware, letting broken promises lie. Preserving a future that might have been, but isn't.
- In other words: if you're going to preserve this page, why not update it from time to time? If you're going to make the Ya NanoNote, why don't you stop fantasizing and make it? But if you've given up on it, as you clearly have for the most part, why don't you just take down the NanoNote stuff?
Huh? I'm just a volunteer here removing endless weight-loss spams and reverting general vandalism. And I moved your remarks to the talk page where they belong. I could probably lock this page if I wanted, but maybe people want to improve this site rather than just accuse people of "lying". It's not up to me to take this page down: Wolfgang seems to have given me access to administer this site, so I'm taking on that responsibility because maybe people will pick up on this again in future. I don't think anyone is "fantasizing" about anything: these were the original plans and they haven't worked out. No conspiracy theory or big deception at all!
I'll leave this little discussion up for now, but really it belongs on the talk page, not here. Perhaps we could put a note saying that this information is out of date without accusing people who made the effort to produce something in the first place of "lying".
