    Thanks for the info guys, really helpful.
     
    Just curious, would anyone be interested in a sort of group buy for a VGA
    breakout board? Looks like I would be able to put together a full kit for
    about $10-$15 each with US shipping (not sure about international) assuming
    ~10 people would be willing to go in on it. If you already have the
    components you might be able to do it cheaper yourself, but should save a
    bit of money for those of us without a stock pile of components.
     
    Let me know if you are interested, and if it seems like there are enough
    people I will pursue putting it together.

    The shop owner can not access the internet for the past 3 days. Now he
    is alive again. All the first batch of boards will be shipped after
    the holiday(Oct 6th). About 20 orders are already shipped today.

    +1 for moving this project to Kickstarter :) It would be awesome!

    even if crowdfunding is a nice idea, kickstarter in particular is
    US-only, and this project is chinese. pre-ordering or crowdfunding
    will only work if the chosen service does smooth and inexpensive
    payments to small entrepreneurs in mainland China.

     

    Joshua Mesilane <jo...@zindello.com.au> Sep 28 07:23PM +1000  

    I don't see the point. The project is already off the ground, it's something that's done in spare time. The creator(s) already have full time jobs and throwing more money isn't going to change that. This project is already up and running, what is moving it to kickstarter going to achieve, except inundating the creators with orders, that they're already struggling to keep up with.

    Exactly that's why.
    More funds = able to increase production through various means = lower
    delivery and production time.
    Though that requires the ability to manage all that, which could cut in the
    time used for R&D.

    One member of the Kickstarter team has to be a US citizen. That
    requirement has something to do with credit card processing laws and
    preventing Kickstarter from being used for laundrying drug money.
     
    Any one can buy from Kickstarter. The rest of the team can be from
    anywhere too. Your company does not have to be US based, you just have
    to have one US owner.
     
    However, CubieBoard is only suitable in its current form for highly
    technical people. You'd end up with a lot of unhappy Kickstarter
    customers if you did it now. To minimize problems the kernel needs to
    be in good enough shape that it is checked into mainline. Same for
    Android or debian/ubuntu builds.

    True, would be a good idea to wait a few batches until the worst problems &
    niggles have been ironed out.

    yes, this is what we think and worry about. First we ship about
    hundreds of boards out and listen to the feedback. If the hardware is
    proved stable. We can start massive production. Now we are looking a
    factory which can manufacture enough boards when we really start
    massive production.
