      I'm sorry u feel like I'm bringing u down and suggesting u fail. in fact, for the sake of my fellow backers who were not refunded, I hope they do get something. they all deserve what they backed this project for.

    2. Mobile Media Ventures, Inc. Creator on February 22, 2016

      We will keep users posted on Kicktarter's progress tomorrow. We expect everything to be ready to go for tomorrow!

    3. Mobile Media Ventures, Inc. Creator on February 22, 2016

      We won't be brought down by people that suggest we should fail. Console OS can be run completely from a flash drive with our Lollipop release. We welcome constructive feedback

      my predictions are:
      1 - the delivery will be postponed due to some 'unforeseen' circumstance or blamed on backers or something/someone else...
      2 - if something is delivered, it won't work on most devices and will be incomplete like missing drivers or something
      in any case, at the end of the day, the question i would ask myself is 'if by chance something is delivered, given the history and problems this whole project has faced, would i want to install it?' i can't answer for the other backers but i just hope they think long and hard if they are on the fence about it. we were fooled once into thinking we would get something in a timely manner that would work easily and flawlessly on our devices, shame on him. but if i still installed something that comes out of this and it doesn't work, then shame on me for not learning my lesson the first time. good luck to all my fellow backers.

      We do,, and when you don't deliver the version today will ALL the features promised, we will all know I was right

    6. Mobile Media Ventures, Inc. Creator on February 21, 2016

      We just disagree, we have been posting regular updates and are literally hours away from shipping Lollipop to backers. We regret you are unhappy.

      The fact that you have chosen not to engage with us doesn't stop us from posting on OUR wall about how much we disagree around your conduct to the "Paid off" Backers and your complete lack of progress delivering on this project 11/2 years after the expected delivery date and your refusal to "answer" any questions.

      I'm not sure what privacy is being violated. All of the 13 backers willing admitted.

    13. Mobile Media Ventures, Inc. Creator on February 21, 2016

      This is inaccurate, respecting privacy of all backers individually, we are not going to engage on that topic, sorry.

      As @arul kindly calculated, nearly 70% of comments on this forum come from @creator. All backers in total (including the unlucky 13) only produced 30% of comments. Data does not lie.

    15. Mobile Media Ventures, Inc. Creator on February 21, 2016

      We disagree in that we cannot communicate properly when backers post hundreds of repeat comments, as has happened over this weekend. That is part and parcel of the backers that we chose to purge. We're sorry if you feel differently.

    16. Missing avatar

      Ian R on February 21, 2016

      You disagree that it's is your poor decision to scrub the comments clean instead if delivering, or you would rather put your team of engineers in charge of fielding comments than delivery to your backers?

    17. Mobile Media Ventures, Inc. Creator on February 21, 2016

      We're sorry you feel that way. We disagree.

      Ian R on February 21, 2016

      Again, I see no correlation between answering posts and delivery of Console OS alpha for llollipop. Your team of coding engineers should not be fielding backer comments. If it is just you, then it is your poor decision to prioritize scrubbing the comments clean instead of delivering for your backers.

    19. Mobile Media Ventures, Inc. Creator on February 21, 2016

      @RiceFryer - We have no plans to refund backers beyond what we have done in concert with Kickstarter, to purge 13 trolls that account for half our comment wall.

      We hope you enjoy Lollipop as we deliver it tomorrow. We are excited about our new release, thanks.

    20. RiceFryer on February 21, 2016

      If you issue refund, i will stop complaining. I promise. Feel free to contact

    22. Mobile Media Ventures, Inc. Creator on February 21, 2016

      This is the kind of toxic behavior which is why we are purging a small group of backers. We will prevail over it, and we are excited to be shipping Console OS Lollipop, just as soon as Kickstarter acts tomorrow on these trolls.

      So @mmv what lies are you going to tell us today.

    27. \_/ Refunded 04.06.16. Hush $$? \=/ on February 21, 2016

      All of my questions posted here with intent to get information from the entity I've purchased products from, have gone unanswered. Just canned (some automated?) rude repLIES from the "creator" of this mess.

      I want a refund, the "creator" of this project has been proven dishonest time and time again... The response is attempting to silence some of those who are simply trying to get what they paid for - or a refund of their payment. Pretty simple. This situation is also being used as the current excuse for having nothing to show for any of our funds.

      It would seem, some people are paid off to go away. Possibly even using my pledge as a fund source to refund other backers! WOW!! Immediately after learning those backers had been issued a refund, I asked for my money back (again).

      If you're another backer reading this and you'd like to help prevent this from happening to others, check out this quick guide to properly document this sham of a CONsole job to the Federal Trade Commission:

      @Arul you have my permission to use my name, although I see that you already have :-)

      It is insulting when I only posted ~10 posts and being called a troll, especially the false statement that the 13 of us took nearly half of the comment wall. By the way, it seems like our fund made this "project" possible so it should be the other way around, that Mr. Price posted on our wall and called us trolls, when taking our money and got our hopes high for almost two years. I urge the fellow backers to raise your voice to be heard. Either FTC or Kickstarters' investigation would easily reveal the scam work done by Mr. Price. I hope that day some soon.

      @arul
      Data does not lie. The comments area is nearly 70% creator comments. This means with the remaining 30% comments is all backers (13 trolls included). Therefore the 13 trolls' comments cannot equal 50% of the posts here as of this day 02/21/2016, 19 months after funding.

      "That list is both offensive... And incorrect at least in part"

      I published my list with permission from majority of backers. how it is offensive?

      @all backers - for proof, please scroll down that the 13 trollers have said that they got a refund,
      how it is incorrect?

      by disproving my publishing, are you going to gain any thing? I never said that I am always correct and constant like you at all places.

      This message is straight from @aias/all nite long from consoleosripoff.com:
      I am one of the so called trolls -> aias / allnitelong.

      Here I want to correct the lie of Chris Price that I am permantly banned:

      "@arul - That's not possible, our understanding is one or two of them were permanently banned previously by Kickstarter staff - for repeated/chronic Community Guideline violations. Again, we gave refunds as a courtesy and to expedite the process."

      I got a mail from Kickstarter that I violated a rule, because I used a picture of Mr. Price so that there would be a possibilty that someone would think I am Mr. Price. Nothing else is true in his statement. I changed it like it was wished by Kickstarter.

      Therefor I got a temporarily denial of writing to the comment wall until the first week of march.

      I am really suprised how Mr. Price lies if he thinks no one is able to correct him...

      I give you permission to use my name / account for the list of the 13 trolls, as Mr. Price used to call us...

      Maybe all 13 trolls can give here in this thread the permission.
      Maybe someone of the other Backers can post my text on the comment wall.

      I would be happy to help Arul.

    38. Mobile Media Ventures, Inc. Creator on February 21, 2016

      @CS - No, we actually will need your help testing with the BayTrail version... ours kicked the bucket and we haven't had time to replace it yet. Please update yours to the latest BIOS and go to Dell.com and download all the (many) firmware updates for that troublesome device. Make sure it is totally up-to-date.

      We will take in the feedback and see if we need to capture another unit for further work. But we don't believe the DV8P video init bugs are related to DV11P issues.

    39. CS on February 21, 2016

      "(And to be clear, we've far from given up on Dell Venue 8 Pro - we will touch base with Intel on their commitments to patch the bugs blocking that device, later this week)." Does this also apply to the Dell Venue 11 Pro?

    40. ACH on February 21, 2016

      @Creator: How about you don't lump the 13 refunded backers in together? Only a few have had posts removed; most of us you are just trying to silence and then falsely claiming you're "banning" us. Extremely disingenuous, but then again I'd expect nothing more from you at this point. If you spent as much time working on Console OS as you do playing the victim, you probably wouldn't be in this situation.

    41. Mobile Media Ventures, Inc. Creator on February 21, 2016

      @arul - Kickstarter prefers if we refund backers before asking for an outright ban. We can wave this if we can demonstrate multiple Community Guideline violations, and they concur. Out of courtesy to backers we are choosing to remove, and to expedite the situation, we chose to refund 13 backers.

      Unfortunately, Kickstarter did not follow through in a timely manner. We expect this process to be completed on Monday. We certainly have complained in the past about Kickstarter breaking for weekends - leaving trolls to attack. They certainly have this weekend, dropping hundreds of troll/duplicate posts.

      That has caused us to reconsider how we engage with the comment wall in the future. But our focus right now, is on shipping Console OS.

    45. Mobile Media Ventures, Inc. Creator on February 21, 2016

      We have good news, some 11th hour efforts have netted something exciting... support for the Lenovo ThinkPad 8!

      Unfortunately these patching efforts did not get the Dell Venue 8 Pro working. We're racing (at 5:50 AM speeds) to get new builds on Amazon S3.

    46. ACH on February 21, 2016

      All, please note that Price's use of the word "banned" is a farce. I have violated no terms, and have never been "sanctioned" or had a post removed.

      I'm 99% sure Price just asked how he can get backers' posting privileges removed and KS told him he would need to issue refunds so that they wouldn't be backers anymore.

      Price is intentionally using the misleading term "banning" to put his own unique spin on the situation; this isn't a surprise, it's now he's operated this project from the beginning.

      I am considering requesting that my refund be reversed so that I can continue to post here, for the benefit of the other backers. However the temptation to just walk away and pretend this never happened is quite strong...

    47. MMV=$78K Payday! Backers got NOTHING! on February 21, 2016

      @copier - I can't tell you how excited I am to have my USD back. I can't imagine the joy the "un-banned" backers will feel as they enjoy the nightly builds. And believe me, there isn't a piece of software that @copier touched that I would allow to run on my dog's tablet.

      @backers - Mind you, he is embedding his own apps.

    48. Mobile Media Ventures, Inc. Creator on February 21, 2016

      @Arul - We aren't going to freeze people out of the free distributions of Console OS. But if a backer is banned, by us or Kickstarter - they will lose nightly builds, Pro features as we add them, and early access.

      All of that starts to ramp up on Monday, and we're excited about it!

      We expect backers to be respectful, as we try to be with backers at all times.
