Not Everyone Who Ordered A Jolla Tablet Will Receive One

Filed under
Linux

While Jolla was saved last month by a fresh round of financing, even now not everyone who backed the Jolla Tablet project on IndieGoGo will be receiving a tablet.

Jolla announced in their New Year's Greeting, "The bad news here is that we are not able to complete the production to fulfill all contributions. In other words, all of our backers will not get a Jolla Tablet." But Jolla's Juhani Lassila says that people won't go empty-handed but they are working on "some positive surprises" for those not receiving a Jolla Tablet. Details on how these backers will be compensated has yet to be explained.

  • New Year’s Greetings from Jolla!

    Today it’s time to close 2015 and enter into a new exciting year. 2015 has been a memorable year for us, to say the least. Sailfish OS has matured substantially this year, evolving to Sailfish OS 2.0 and supporting multiple form factors. Even though we’ve said it often, now we really feel that the software is ready for scaling, and new partners are able to utilize it easily and powerfully in their projects. In the summer of 2015 we were honored to announce the first major licensing deal with India’s largest smartphone vendor Intex Technologies. We’re super excited about this partnership and look forward to making a new Sailfish OS powered smartphone available in India by spring 2016. As mentioned in Antti Saarnio’s previous post we also have some other exciting projects cooking and we can’t wait to tell you more about those as soon as they mature.

    [...]

    During 2015 we also worked hard on the Jolla Tablet project, which was first introduced in November 2014. Our very talented team made a lot of progress in the project, and the first small batch of Jolla Tablets were shipped in the autumn to our Indiegogo contributors. The project altogether had some serious unexpected setbacks in the autumn, and we were forced to postpone the whole project schedule many times – these were communicated in several blog posts along the summer and autumn.

  • Raspberry Pi CM4 compatible module coming soon with Amlogic A311D CPU - CNX Software

    Despite assurances by Eben Upton that there’s no supply shortage of Raspberry Pi CM4 modules for commercial and industrial customers, installations or projects requiring just a few modules may be out of luck. So alternatives are needed, and after seeing Rockchip RK3566-based SoMs compatible with Pi CM4, namely the Pine64 SoPine and Radxa CM3, Banana Pi is working on a Raspberry Pi CM4 compatible module powered by Amlogic A311D hexa-core Arm Cortex-A73/A53 processor.

  • MacroMitt increases AutoCAD productivity [Ed: But AutoCAD is proprietary software that can and should be avoided with Free software]

    AutoCAD is conventional 2D CAD (drafting) software that still contains many “legacy” features that you won’t find in modern 3D CAD programs. One of those features is the command line, in which users can type short commands to perform various functions or launch tools. For example, typing “line” and pressing Enter will launch the line tool. It can be a pain to enter commands, which is why Wingletang created MacroMitt to increase their AutoCAD productivity. MacroMitt is a simple macro keyboard dedicated to AutoCAD functions. Its buttons are arranged to be comfortable for the user’s left hand, leaving their right hand free to manipulate the mouse. It has six functions: OSNAP (toggles object snapping), ORTHO (toggles orthogonal mouse movement), PICKSTYLE (toggles group/individual object selection), CANCEL (escape key), RETURN (enter key), and volume control. Pressing one of the main buttons will automatically move to activate the command line, enter the appropriate command, and then exit the command line.

  • Eat up fewer resources in Cryostat 2.1 with sidecar reports

    Cryostat is a tool for managing JDK Flight Recorder data on Kubernetes. Version 2.1 of Cryostat introduces the option of using a sidecar reports container to generate automated analysis reports for JDK flight recordings. Previously, the main Cryostat container handled the report generation. Report generation is a resource-intensive operation, and as a result, users may find themselves overprovisioning the Cryostat container to meet peak resource demands. Those resources may in turn end up unused if you're not generating reports. With this new option to delegate report generation to a sidecar container, users will find it easier to provision resources more efficiently. When report generation is not a concern, the main Cryostat container, including its web server and various lightweight operations over HTTP and JMX, has only a small resource footprint. Based on their report generation workflow, users can provision resources to the sidecar reports container accordingly and spin up any number of replicas of that container.
