    Another hard lesson in crowd funding and pre-ordering.

    $270, that's a lot of dough to never see again.

    Oh well, glad I never backed it!

    A good OS only helps if the device can attract a audience. Big big company's have failed in the tablet space to expect this crowd funded one to deliver on its promises where others had failed was unrealistic.

    I do wonder if the 300 they made was how far the cash ran before it expired. Most will get there credit card company's to dispute the costs for them.

    It had 'too good to be true' written all over it. Too bad though as I really wanted one but didn't back it because it seemed unlikely to ever be finished. It got a lot farther than I expected I have to admit.
