Happy Birthday Chris!

Saturday, December 29th, 2012

I wanted to give a special shout out to Chris and wish him a Happy and Healthy Birthday.

Chris and I got introduced last year when he was one of the first customers. Like many of you, he and I became friends and since then, he’s been an amazing help and support. He even wrote up the famous XBMC article that was published.

Happy Birthday Chris!

Announcing Njoy Digital, Our New Partner

Sunday, December 16th, 2012

I’m so pleased to announce that we’re partnering with Njoy Digital in Europe. Njoy Digital offers a number of amazing products and I am happy to be a part of their product portfolio. This will help with European distribution and dreadful 4-8 week ship times. They currently have limited stock, so get them while you can.

I’m also evaluating some of their amazing products hoping to offer those to US costumers as well. The flirc store will be expanding in the next few months so stay tuned for some neat personal and partner additions.

Here is a list of our Partners

Pre-Orders Shipping

Wednesday, December 5th, 2012

It’s always a full time job trying to build more flircs. That will be a next step, try and figure out how to procure parts and ship them to the manufacturer without all this trouble. Each time gets easier, but nevertheless, it’s always painful. Something always goes wrong, this times it was Chinese customs.

100 samples of the new PCB returned and I had 99/100 work. That’s pretty good yield, and I’ll look into why the one didn’t work. This is a slightly modified PCB to address build issues.

Those 99 went out almost immediately to customers and more pre-orders should go out this week. I rushed a subset of the build to arrive next week, and those should fulfill all the pre-order needs. So we’re certainly in good shape.

Another update to come shortly.
