Yes, I feel the same. I always thought you can never go wrong with black, and chrome can look tacky, especially when it's plastic. However, on the Pyra it looks really nice, and I also think it contrasts well with the black shoulder buttons, nubs, d-pad... Would like to see more pictures / videos though, although I'm 100% sold on the dark chrome version.
I‘ll second that. Give the guys some peace. You know they are already giving as much as they can. You know, because after all these years they did not stop. And i believe the only thing that can give ED some relief is the release of that thing. So let him get there
Anyone who lived through the Pandora days knows how much work the guys put in behind the scenes and how getting news updates often raises false hopes about possible shipment days. Rest assured work continues without news updates and getting updates is not going to bring peace to anyone until they have a tracking number. Just sit tight, hack in a project you want the Pyra for and wait until things actually ship.
I honestly only started watching the forums again after I got the survey and am just about ready to go back into "other things" hibernation until I get another mail.
(Not saying news is bad, but no news shouldn't cause stress either.)
