Makes me thing you could build a decent POS terminal out of a relativly cheap tablet though



Square already does that, quite successfully. 

As in hundred dollar android tablet in an enclosure, not a 500+ dollar ipad with squares dongle(although said dongle would work on any tablet to my knowledge nothing special about a rfid sensor outputting via the mic in on a device)

I have not seen a $100 tablet that was any good. They are slow, have substandard touch screens to the point of unworkability, as well as old versions of Android.  I have tried a few.  Is there anything out there for $100 that is really usable on a long term basis? 

I have seen $300 tablets that are just fine though.

i've used a few of the cheaper ones and you're right i wouldnt use it day to day but as a POS terminal they should be fine(no real need for multitouch or anything fancy)

In a few days time he'll announce that the trial was a huge success and that there are going to be bigger and better trials - all without revealing the company concerned.

All I can say is that this is Bitcoin. I don't believe it until I see six confirmations.

Though, technically, I think the pronunciation would be "Whok me?" (I think fu sounds like who there)

He has made legit connections within the Bitcoin communities.  He is still a middle ground between parties it seems, and it will probably be that way for a while.

Are you really expecting same performance of a 800$ tablet from a 100$ one???  Roll Eyes

Try comparing tablets of the same price, they will be better than the iCrap

No not the same just good enough for a simple pos, even if a sufficient tablet can't be found for a hundred surely two hundred is manageable

Folks, it's not happening. There was stupid banter on Twitter at the time, but it's all gone. That's because either everything fell through, or Bruce realized it was a troll and deleted everything.

Please give me your money, because I am a shameless libertarian elite who deserves your money more than you do: 9Hkao8U82WWDp6SQGn4k7ad9gT1LWeL5s3

If you believed Bruce on this, than let this be a lesson for you.  Bruce is bad for Bitcoin, the longer he is around Bitcoin, the longer Bitcoin will suffer as a result.
