But the main problem is the idea is wrong, a lot of talking without saying anything.ghans wrote:@DexOS
Couldn't it have been a honest mistake ? They could have just forgot to join before.
And that was a big flop, its only still going because sugars got a warehouse full of them .rurwin wrote: Amstrad tried it once, but with telephones and a horrible screen. Strangely enough they must have made money from it because it's still going.
Yes and we all know how .com completely disappeared into complete obscurity never to be seen again. Cloud may indeed be a buzz word but there is no smoke without fire. People throw the word around as though it is the future of computing but the truth is that cloud computing has been around a lot longer that the word itself and we've all been using the cloud for some time.DexOS wrote:Cloud for example, its the latest buzz word, lets add that investors will love that, just like in the good old ".com" days, that was the buzz work back in the late 1990s./
Depending on your definition of non-geek here I'd agree (although I'm about as geeky as they come and I often struggle with washing machines) but the target market for this device is the elderly and I'm afraid you're sorely mistaken if you think that all elderly consumers get on with these devices.DexOS wrote:First what devices do non geeks find easy to use, answer games sys and i-pads, tv's, mobile phones, washing machines, micro waves etc./
Again I think the reason we (geek or non-geek) can pick up and use these devices without any formal training on that specific device is that we have been trained how to over many years. We look for that power button symbol to turn it on and within an hour or two we've mastered it. These devices are designed to be intuitive and easy to use for the mass consumer market.DexOS wrote:You maybe surprised to see i-pads and game sys in theres, but i have found non-geeks can in next to no time workout how to use these devices./

I don't know how I can prove I'm not a part of the Pure Devices team other than to say I live on the south coast of england and the Pure team is in seattle. That would be one hell of a commute. As for the actual detail of my responses. You'll find nothing in my responses that is not available online and mainly on the kickstarter site itself. If it helps you can see my facebook page at http://www.facebook.com/grimwadem granted I could have gone to great lengths to fake this but if you believe that then there is nothing I could do that will convince you otherwise.thexman wrote:my 10p worth for some one who isn't part of the Pure team why are you posting such feedback to people with the detail you do..
If your parents choose not to go online then that is fine. That is their choice. But there are many who would like to get online but are uncomfortable with the technology involved in doing so. My gran would love to have a device that would allow her to easily get onto facebook and see the latest photos of her grandchildren.thexman wrote:suspect the owner trying to get the kick starter backing it looks good but my parents wont even have a mobile phone BT for them is all they need and why burden them with a system that is Cloud based when it appears clown based..
