Ordered one yesterday to try it out vs Roku...... Anyone else grab one?

Nope because we're not permitted to have those sorts of products or services up here because of the conservative gubment protecting their monopolistic pals.

That doesn't sound correct.
Unless you mean the content providers, not Amazon. Amazon would probably kill to have this in Canada.

@Beam, they're a family run business, and they're claiming that this simple game will take them 2 years to finish. I assume they all live in the same house and work from it, and they're probably supported by family members or even themselves by outside or day jobs. They previously brought a game from KS to Steam. So they aren't a fly by night operation and appear to know what they're doing. I bet they have some income from that previous game too, which may offset what they need for this one. I've seen a lot more dice-ier KS's out there than this one. They appear to deserve the benefit of the doubt.

Also, I'm tempted to back this just on the fact that they're NOT using 8 bit graphics.

Don't get me wrong - this looks like a blast and I hope it gets released and I'd almost definitely buy it if it's fun (if it's fun), but it just doesn't look like a smart investment to me right now. I can just wait until it gets on Steam. There are plenty of other ways for me to spend that money that will give me more joy over the next 2 years than waiting on this.

I've been hesitant to use Kickstarter due to previous games turning out to be really shitty. But I can't resist this one. It looks really fun.

Looks great, but not getting my money. Blue says "to complete," which sounds awesome. FTL just needed money to complete, since it was nearly done, and it came out quickly and was awesome.

But these guys say this:
Why $80,000?

We estimate Popup Dungeon will take us about 2 years to complete. After software expenses ($10,000-$12,000) and the cost of generating the soundtrack (amount not disclosed to protect our composer’s privacy) this is the minimum that we believe that the three of us can realistically survive on for that time. That and because we're suckers for round numbers!

So they think 3 people can survive on $80k less $12k (let's make it $17, since they are likely understating it), less soundtrack (let's say $5k), less the Kickstarter fee (I don't remember what that was, but we'll say 10%), less taxes, right?
I'm not even going to look those last two points up - no way can 3 people survive on that much money for two years.

Given the video showing what they want and the amount of people involved I'd say they're underestimating the time by a year and the money needed by at least 75%. They need like 300k.

I do think we just witnessed something somewhat historic, though. Something that will be in history books, even if just mentioned in a phrase.

In 1969 you had the Stonewall Riots. 45 years later, only a few miles away, a CEO had to step down for not respecting equality. Yes, this was in one of the most socially-liberal industries in one of the most liberal cities. Yes, this was a company people didn't just support but loved and trusted to do right by them, and therefore felt betrayal. Yes, this was just one company.

But it's the first time we've seen a CEO forced to step down for being on the wrong side of equality. That's absolutely a pretty big deal. It sends a strong message. As one article put it, it seems to cement that gay rights is no longer an issue reasonable people disagree over. In at least one area, speaking out against equality here is now viewed in the same light as speaking out against interracial marriage. All the arguments of "but he's a passionate, smart, good guy" have fallen on deaf ears, because to many, it's impossible to be a "good" guy and do what he did.

We'll see what the fallout is. A conservative boycott is sure to come. Eich is sure to get some fantastic, million dollar job at a more conservative company, or even a thinktank. As Eich mentioned, the US is no longer the only important market, and no longer the only market contributing to Mozilla, and many of those markets mostly agree with him and will feel frozen out by this. But, to this company, I don't think that will matter.

I know I'm being belligerent, but that's because Mad Max would never, ever listen to reason on this. Talk radio, and whatever stupid blog he posted, tell him not to. I lost the patience to try to explain this to people like him a long time ago, because every time you counter a point they find some new, dumb, somewhat off-topic thing, until they circle around to the original point like it hadn't been discussed yet.

And I find it amazing that I've been accused here of never admitting I was wrong (when I did it earlier this week after stupidly not reading something I commented on), yet Mad Max has yet to say "oh, I guess what I read was misinformed. Looking at the better sources now, this clearly was a legal disclosure by California, and this clearly isn't a Freedom of Speech issue since the government isn't involved."

Unless he donated or voted for Prop 8, or any equivalent, he's done nothing remotely hypocritical.

By not speaking out against OKCupid's bullying tactics to suppress freedom of speech while touting equality versus tyranny, that makes him and others like him a hypocrite. Again, I don't agree with the guy donating $1,000 of his own money to Prop 8, but it is his right to do so. Both parties acted like scumbags, however demonizing one and ignoring the other because you agree with their stance is very much hypocritical.

OH FOR GODSSAKE OKCUPID IS NOT THE GOVERNMENT, FREEDOM OF SPEECH IS NOT PART OF THIS, YOU HAVE NO BRAIN CELLS IF YOU THINK IT IS, AND EVEN IF IT WAS THEY HAVE THEIR OWN FREEDOM TO SAY THAT THEY THINK HE IS AN IDIOT AND THEY'D RATHER NOT SUPPORT HIM.

Christ. You are so insanely wrong about EVERYTHING you say. Factually. "The IRS leaked the records? No, you are factually wrong. "This is a Freedom of Speech thing." No, you are factually wrong.

How can you believe so stringently in a literal reading of the Constitution if you don't even know what the hell it says? Freedom of speech? SHUT UP, YOU IGNORANT TROLL!

* and "ignorant" is not an insult. This is factually correct. Citing blogs that are not right and claiming it as fact is ignorant. Thinking OKCupid saying "we don't like this guy and you shouldn't, either" violates his freedom of speech is ignorant.

Beamer, always making ignorant posts based on his feelings.

Read.

Why, then, the ruckus? Amazingly enough, it is entirely due to the fact that Eich made a $1,000 donation to the campaign urging a ‘yes’ vote on California’s Proposition 8. When this fact first came to light in 2012, after the Internal Revenue Service leaked a copy of the National Organization for Marriage’s 2008 tax return to a gay-advocacy group, Eich, who was then CTO of Mozilla, published a post on his personal blog stating that his donation was not motivated by any sort of animosity towards gays or lesbians, and challenging those who did not believe this to cite any “incident where I displayed hatred, or ever treated someone less than respectfully because of group affinity or individual identity.”

The Human Rights Campaign, the same group that exposed Eich, were given leaked tax returns by the IRS in the first place.

Now Beamer, are you going to continue acting the hypocrite or finally put your money where your mouth is? Do you actually support gay marriage or do you prefer lecturing people about it on a video game website with your feelings? Do I need to say once again I don't agree with the guy and I do in fact support gay marriage. I also support the First Amendment and believe the ends does not justify the means. Both of those are things that terrify you. And both what he did and OKCupid did was wrong, but it was their right to be stupid. Don't let that stop you from pushing your little agenda of hate to try to get a point across.


oh for godsake. YOUR STUPID SOURCE IS WRONG. Mine is a goddam CA law, a court opinion, and heritage.org. And you still argue.

I hadn't heard that. Links?

Read my comment. He's wrong. He's just repeating what anti-government types want to spin to try to control the way this story is viewed. Y'know, "this isn't a guy getting that did something that damaged his company, this is a conspiracy by Obama!"

According to heritage.org, who I think most conservatives would trust, it was released by California in accordance with CA law, requiring all donations over $100 to be public.

Per CA case law:
California's PRA requires committees such as Plaintiffs to report certain information regarding their contributors. Specifically, Plaintiffs are required to file semiannual reports including the name, street address, occupation, name of employer, (if self-employed, the name of the business), as well as the date and amount received during the period covered by the statement of anyone who contributes more than $100 to them, both during and after active campaigns. Cal. Gov.Code §§ 84200, 84211(f). This information is then available, inter alia, on the website of the California Secretary of State.

It may seem like that, if you were trying to change the storyline, but sadly for you, that's not how this information leaked out.

Sadly for you, because it makes you factually wrong, instead of just morally wrong.
Much of the hostility directed against Prop 8 supporters has been facilitated by a California law that requires the disclosure of certain personal information of individuals who donate $100 or more in support of or opposition to a ballot measure. Information subject to disclosure includes the donor's full name, occupation, and employer.[3] Once this information is disclosed to the State of California, the state then publishes this information on its Web site, enabling anyone with Internet access to view detailed donor reports online in html format or in a downloadable Microsoft Excel spreadsheet

Are you ever, ever right?

You wouldn't. But he also didn't do anything against you.

That would make zero difference to me. I accept that people are different and have different viewpoints and belief systems, some of which will invairably conflict with my own.

And yes, this is a special case. Special because it's Mozilla, which is seen as the "good" browser choice (as opposed to either corporate mediocrity or corporate spyware, to label the two primary alternatives), and because it's the tech industry, which tends to be privileged and wealthy and overwhelmingly socially liberal. Putting a man that clashes with the culture and supports something many see as abhorrent in charge of a company that mostly gets attention for being the "good" choice is clearly going to fail. Had he been CEO of Oracle or Microsoft or Facebook or GM or Boeing this would just be another example of a CEO being a dickhead rather than the betrayal many felt it to be.

That makes sense I guess. I work for Koch Industries whose leaders pay tons of money into similar causes, though I can't say that I know whether they have actually supported bans on gay marriages. I do know that their personal beliefs don't affect the company policies like offering full health benefits to same sex domestic partners or wedded gays in states where it is legally recognized. In a conglomeration of 40,000+ employees, there's presumbaly a fair amount of liberals and homosexuals that don't mind working for them because they ostensibly know how to compartmentalize their beliefs from their obligations to their employees.

The first line I put, by the way, sounds more belligerent than I meant it. The "you wouldn't" was meant to be agreeing, not dismissing. I know you don't care. And you tend to be pretty consistent in not taking much personally or getting worked up over much. But I do think that, if your boss or your wife's boss was specifically active in belittling you and preventing your equality, you'd probably consider finding a new job very quickly.

edit - "I know you don't care" also sounds dismissive when it isn't meant to be. Damn typing removing tone!

Would you say the same thing if he'd donated to the KKK or to the Nazi party?

Yes. As long as his views were kept out of the workplace, I couldn't care any less about who he felt like wasting his money on.

You wouldn't. But he also didn't do anything against you.
And it wasn't a view, it was an action. He didn't just feel that gays shouldn't be granted the legal privileges that come with marriage, he actively donated part of his income to the cause.

Let's look at it this way: what is a CEO? He's a leader. That's literally his primary job - lead. In order to lead, the people you lead need to feel that you respect and value them, and in return, they need to respect and value you.
If someone had donated part of their salary to deny you, or a friend of yours, equality, would you feel that person values you? Would you feel it respected you? And if you worked for a company that preached equality and respect, then it promoted a man to lead it that you felt did not value or respect you, wouldn't you start to question just how truthful the company was?

The bottom line is that many employees felt this man did not care about them and did not respect them, and those employees were bound to leave. App/plugin developers felt the same way, and were already leaving. Consumers felt the same way, and were claiming they were leaving (and I'm sure Mozilla had some numbers on active users.)

He wasn't able to lead with this around him. No one will willingly follow someone they do not feel respects them when they can find someone that does.

And yes, this is a special case. Special because it's Mozilla, which is seen as the "good" browser choice (as opposed to either corporate mediocrity or corporate spyware, to label the two primary alternatives), and because it's the tech industry, which tends to be privileged and wealthy and overwhelmingly socially liberal.

The Roku can be quite sluggish with some apps, this machine won't have that issue and its a similar price point. It'll also have the benefit of a stronger ecosystem thanks to Amazons relatively open policies. The ability to sideload your own content is fantastic and the voice searching might be useful to some people. Finally the actual Plex app looks to be the better one used for GoogleTV rather than the crappy one on the Roku right now. Given it's relative power point it will make a pretty decent emulator box as well. I hope it can natively browse CIFS/etc shares but I guess we'll see. Sideloading XBMC on this would rock.

The bigger problem is the lack of HBO Go but that doesn't bug me.

I'm waiting on mine to arrive to start messing around on it, going through the API it looks very promising though. I'm interested to see if it'll pass DTS too. Worst case scenario is that its more powerful than the Roku at a similar price point so its win win if you don't have a media STB already.

It looks like a great device if you want a set-top box.
I have a small TV in a room not good for a TV, so I keep it stashed away and take it out from time to time. It's hooked up to a Roku 3 I recently bought on Woot.
Wish I'd waited for this. But I use it maybe once a month...

Guy used his own money to promote inequality.

Let me put it this way. Say I pay a politician to pass a law that people that have used the name "Mad Max RW" on the internet can't get married. Would you want me to be in charge of a company you like? Probably not. When your significant other is laying, dying in a hospital room, and you can't visit because you aren't married to her, you'd probably be pretty annoyed at me.

It's making a big deal out of a homophobe being in charge of a company that they always thought of as a better choice morally.

Also, now you're being a whiny baby. Yes, Mad Max RW, you're being a whiny baby. Look at you, whining here. Are the people angry at Mozilla doing anything illegal? You're making a big deal out of what? A few thousand people use their own time to push an unpopular opinion among the right? A distraction for whiny babies no different than the "Birth Certificate" scandal that amounted to a whole lot of nothing.

Stop whining.

So I'm guessing you live in a rural area, and have a small ISP that's raking you over the coals. That sucks, but you won't get a larger company to wire up your town (or god forbid you live way outside of a town). The cost will never, ever be recouped. And since everyone was too busy watching football or the Kardashians to bother complaining about deregulation, they aren't even required to PRETEND they care anymore.
If you do live in a small town, and you're IN TOWN, see about getting your representatives to pester Metronet. If there's enough interest in your town, you may be able to get them to wire up fiber to everyone's house. If your town is packed with old folks or hillbillies that don't care about that there inernet, you're fucked.
HoSpanky I would love to take your out of the suburbs and put you in the country. I would then precede to tell you your "fucked" and how I could care less about your ISP situation.

When faced by an impossibly corrupt political system what exactly would you recommend Cutter? Not that I dont agree with you in this instance, vomiting as a sign of protest? Time to use that timeless cliche: Only in America...

These protests inspired similar protests in Seattle.
The problem is, the protests were dumb:
1) They complained about high paid tech workers coming into their neighborhood and taking character. 15 years ago, they came into the neighborhood and kicked out a poorer class
2) They complained that, due to the high paid tech workers, rents went up. This is true, but
3) They complained that, due to the high paid tech workers, many new apartment complexes were going up, raising rent. No, that's not how it works. Increasing supply doesn't raise rents
4) They complained that the buses used by tech companies were destroying the environment. Huh?
5) They complained that the buses used by tech companies were empty. But, wouldn't that mean there aren't as many people taking your apartments as you think there are?
6) Realizing they couldn't target Amazon, as Amazon employees in their neighborhood walk to work, they protested and blocked a trolley at Amazon. Problem was, they protested and blocked it at the Amazon stop. Meaning the Amazon employees got off at the protest, and they just blocked people working at the supermarket up the street

The whole thing was pretty terribly thought through and led to nothing. 3 people at each protest, the same three people. It got no sympathy because it was basically just "you're making our neighborhood more boring!" It's hard to lob that at a rather diverse group of 20-somethings from basically every continent and have it stick. The Google bus protests made more sense, because they used public bus stops. The ones in Seattle don't, so the protests just seemed like complaining without direction.

Kind of like the Crimethinc poster I keep walking by that proclaims loudly "Capitalism has Failed." No, you idiots (and Crimethinc has ALWAYS been idiots), unregulated and unchecked capitalism is bad, but isn't failing. Those that push it are getting what they want. It's fucking the rest of us, but stop being an idiot and blaming capitalism. Capitalism gave us the middle class. It's capitalism with no balance, thanks to "free market derp!" people, that is failing.

its a gaming peripheral. So are those two. One sold little, one sold a few hundred thousand.
