    Is there a 3DO emulator for OP?

    It really wasn't. Phillips was aiming it at the "multimedia" phenomenon that everyone seemed to think was imminent. It was meant for encyclopedias and interactive educational stuff, for people who were scared of computers. Pulling off simple games was a handy side effect, and they only really...

    Will the 1ghz units replace the standard model in the future?

    Out of curiousity, would 1GHz motherboards ever be available separately in the future, as a drop-in replacement for the old motherboards? Would Pandora 2 motherboards (whatever they end up being) be a drop-in replacement? I haven't gotten my Pandora yet, but I've been considering paying the...

    ... and production still is reliable and moving forward :) (2012-05-11)

    I just want my god damned little computer. I don't care if the colour matches my personality. New colour is more durable? Sounds great to me. --Zero

    How much more until the first batch is fininshed shipped? 2008 order here.

    I hope there's at least an announcement after all the pre-orders have been sent out. I haven't gotten any official Pandora emails since 2009, which sort of makes me worry a bit. --Zero

    Minimig anyone?

    Wow, that is looking pretty awesome... I remember looking at this years back when it was still a pie-in-the-sky kind of project like Natami, and didn't think anything would come of it! That price tag is awfully high though... at half the price, I'd consider it, but €650? Ouch. Keep in mind that...

    Minimig anyone?

    I think the main problem is that there really aren't a lot of FPGA programmers in the emulation scene. When you look into a lot of the projects out there, it's just one guy writing the core in his spare time... meanwhile, you have huge, mature, open-source projects like VICE and UAE competing...

    Minimig anyone?

    For a long time, I was really interested in getting a C-One, thinking that FPGA's would be the end-all, be-all for old computers. Unfortunately, due to hardware bugs and lack of a development scene, it never really got to where I hoped it would. It was also very expensive. All in all, it would...

    Talking to the GPIO's on the EXT-connector

    Wouldn't something that does this through USB make a lot more sense? Then you could use it on other devices (like your computer) as well. --Zero

    Dev on a mac

    Shouldn't information like this be on the main Pandora site? Since one of the main selling points is that it's an open system that anyone can develop for, I would think there should be a whole section on describing how to set up a toolchain in all three major OS's, and links to...

    More numbers, late again :) (2011 - 04 - 05)

    Are the newer OMAP's backwards compatible? Assuming the next Pandora sticks with this family of products, would it be safe to say that it'll run software for the original Pandora, or would everything have to be recompiled?

    What app / game do you want to see? :)

    Sort of a generic request... but seeing more of the actual user interface for these emulators would be nice. I mean, it's good to see a selection of MSX games, but I fully expect them to all work perfectly. I'm more curious as to what options the emulator has and what it's file browser is like...

    New Panasonic Device - Jungle

    I'm surprised no one has started a topic about this yet, but Panasonic recently announced a new device they're releasing called "Jungle". Here's one site's story about the announcement. There's very little information available about it so far, including no mention about what kind of hardware it...

    flash video player?

    Has anyone looked into porting Lightspark? It was featured on Slashdot a while back, and though it's still pretty early in development, it seemed like a more modern replacement for Gnash. --Zero

    New Icontrolpad Pictures

    Have you considered making a standard USB controller around this? Seems like it would be just a matter of simple side-rails to cover the hooks, and an extension cord. --Zero

    While Waiting... What Would You Like To See?

    Is there any software out there yet that does 3D or video decoding using hardware acceleration? I'd be very interested in seeing some videos of that! Preferably shown back to back with a comparable non-accelerated demo so you can see the benefits. --Zero
