I've been checking back on this project every once and a while. I can't wait for most of the hardware bugs to be resolved so they can start shipping some models to the eager public. I don't care if it still has buggy software, but I'd much rather have an Open Source phone that I can help improve and write applications for than the other highly anticipated touchscreen phone coming in late summer. They seem to have made lots of progress as of late and there's a chance it will have WIFI in the next hardware revision or two.

I get all warm and fuzzy just thinking about it...Open Source, Linux based, community-developed, well-priced and stylish too!

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
