i would like to know this too.'Wolfsclaw' said:So this will mean the theory of having my Pandora in my hands in about mid-April is still up to date?
That confused me a bit because I got two copies of the buy the spares email and the check I sent hasn't been cashed.'craigix' said:The emails went to the second 6000 on the list, not the original 6000.
There could be a slight bit of overlap though from around the week of the original email.
Sure that`s the worst case scenario, but lets assume the truth falls some where inbetween that and "no one finds out", What does failing the testing mean for the device? do they think it gives off harmful radiation? Does it get into wifi networks by circumventing security?Monk said:QUOTEAlpha2 said:QUOTE
I mean honestly what would be the harm if they DID fail?
The FCC and CE guys go "hey, you`re shipping a product we expressly told you wasn`t ready for shipping. Here`s a hefty fine and we`re pulling your product and blocking all possibility of you shipping your product in the near future until we can do a really, really, REALLY, like put-on-the-rubber-gloves-turn-your-head-and-cough thorough inspection. Shouldn`t take more than a year or two. Three tops!"
One would hope!sverm said:
It has been said that all the components passed CE-tests individually, so it would be okay to sell them unassembled.'Alpha2' said:Any way, if it can ship as parts without passing testing that just seems like a weird loop hole to me, How hard will it be to snap together wanyway because I suck at soldering.

The media and "public knowledge" might suggest that radio signals from, say, a cell phone can cause damage to electronics. The truth is actually a lot more mundane and easier to prove. Put your cell phone next to a speaker and send a text message to it. Note the beeping, clicking, and buzzing? Now imagine 300 similar signals all at the same time. Now imagine you're a pilot wearing a headset that has to listen to it all while trying to keep a plane steady at 30'000 feet.
It's something like that. The cockpit is supposed to be shielded, but no shielding is 100% effective, and do you really want to take a chance on annoying the person responsible for keeping a giant metal bird in check for several hours?
It's also been proven that idiots on cell phones are 358 times more likely to die "by accident" when confined with others for several hours. It's science!
