Join Wayne (out there) and Joe (in here) in this raw discussion about the future of mobile devices
In this episode:
Wayne wishes he had Suitecrm charm irony
Joe finds 'la negativitée' in someone
Wayne talks with 'bdug; who throws a thought that maybe we need to rebrand away from Canonical. Has their 'abandonment' created more negative than positive for UBports project?
Wayne and Joe slip into bad fake French
Careful what info you are looking for because - you will likely find it
Rats on restaurant tables are fun to talk about
Wayne whips out m130 palm and logitech fold up keyboard (photo)
What hardware do we actually need?
Is the Fairphone irresistible enough to be the convergent device ?
Will Joe try to take the screen off fp2? Check out how easy it is!
Dock + unity8 + 'Stationdock' + hardware = new simple approach
Why has no one done this yet? Price? Experience?
Wayne has compassion for Canonical's dropping of Ubuntu Touch
Congratulations to Fairphone for getting device as far as they have!
Is Fairphone price too high?
Would raising enough capital for 'Newco' and having a beefy marketing branding approach be enough for success?
Is brick and mortar store for 'Newco' a needed addition (Tesla, Apple model)?
Proposed simplified solutions:
Mobile environment: smartphone + fold up keyboard and mouse
Stationary environment: smartphone + Station dock, + full keyboard and mouse, +screen of your choice
Big Daddy Dock and Baby Dock!
What happens if you lose your device? Home Box! Freedom Box!
What about a federated, non internet, bluetooth and encrypted sync system?
What about a .iso flash clone system for device on Home Box?
"What about making the device less valuable instead of more valuable?" - Joe
