Would you complain about getting a bunch of idiots to give you all their money?

Oh no, I am labeled a scammer on BitcoinTalk.org... my life is broken. Forever! What will I do now? I guess I'll just go cry alone on the tropical island I bought with the coins they gave me  Grin

Rumor has it that a new team has picked it up and is currently taking pre-orders. Also, there's 2-3 other entities currently developing said device, therefore don't expect to see many images posted by the myriad of photographers currently attached to said entities. Enough said?

Sources say (who wish to remain non-existent) that Adele will be at the launch and has a theme song. I think I heard this on Faux News. *facepie*

Subbed.

A)I believe I have missed something. I've read through 6 pages of post. I don't see anywhere where it verifies the person sending you the bitcoins actually has them. Can I make a copy of my wallet at one point in time, clone it to a second SDCARD, put it on 2 ellets and send money to 2 people? It doesn't store the blockchain. So if you are in a place with no wireless and no cellular, I can't possibly see how you can't clone your wallet and spend twice. I mean hell, someone can find a way to open one, kill the antennae, and just walk around spending a bucket load of money at say a trade convention. Lets go a step further. Find the spectrum this uses and kill it with a jammer. You could walk around all day just going "oh look, no signal here. Have 30 bucks" and disappear into the shadows.

B) As others said. The name isn't very good, but whatever. It doesn't flow if you ask me.

C) This will be hacked. Saying it can't, just makes you a bigger target. This deals with money, you already have a large mark on your back. See: iphone, onstar, etc

D) I'd say an app I can put on any phone I'm already I'm carrying in my pocket would be a huge plus. I'm not opposed to another device, depending on the size. When you carry a gun in one pocket, earbuds,gum,cellphone in another and a wallet in one back pocket, you really don't wan't to have leave an implant in the other cheek.

E) If you can get it to the right size and display the time, this would make a great watch replacement. Heck, I still might build a strap to keep it on my wrist, no worries about theft under a long shirt then.

EDIT:F) Accept credit cards. I got a square up device a bit ago. This is awesome for me when I'm at shows. Instant payment that everyone already has, especially when they don't carry around a few $100 in cash. As for the fee, I add it to their total.

No idea if this is dead here. Even if, there will eventually be such a device.
Over here we are talking about creating visual representations of adresses:
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=137406.0

What for? To easily compare an adress on my computer with the one the ellet has received!

Thank you for being there for the earlier prototypes. It was fun. The project itself has stalled for funding reasons (it costs about $1 million to get even 50,000 of them produced). We thought about a kickstarter or indiegogo campaign, but in shopping around for distributors we found that most of them were scammers trying to steal our ideas. For the moment, we're taking our time and watching the market for interest (as we should have done in the first place). Slush, who was there in the beginning of the Ellet's development for a few months has also started making a physical wallet device. Check his out too!

Open source is not about allowing others to steal ideas, it's to encourage it. Closed source is anathema to Bitcoin. We all benefit by sharing ideas to make Bitcoin adaption grow. It would be nice to see what you had developed.

Hardware is a tough industry as I've come to learn. You don't get anywhere in hardware without burning money. The question then is if you're able to replenish it or not. I can safely say that as an open source project, I have no confidence in the bitcoin community's ability to support its large overhead for manufacturing as there just isn't a large enough market for such a device.

That said, I have come to grow fond of the principles of open source since coming to the Bitcoin community and I hope to appreciate it even moreso as I work on open source projects this year. Here's to broader minds and strokes in 2013.
