This is the PineTime. A companion for your Linux smartphone, and new side-project of ours. More news coming in the future...

(If you have experience with FreeRTOS or mbed, and are interested, please get in touch!)

Wow, we did not expect the level of interest you all have had in the #PineTime!

More info:
- Cost will be approximately 25USD
- Charging dock included in price
- Built-in heartbeat monitor
- Case built of Zinc alloy and plastic
- Battery life measured in days
- Sorry, can't run Linux itself. SoC is nRF52832, which uses a Cortex-M4 core. That's why we need FreeRTOS :)

@jalcine And in the longer essay about Free Software, RMS presents an ethnical framework which we can use to evaluate contributing the maximum good to the world.

That was also a revolution for me. Before that, I'd felt like everything in my ethical life was simply fed to me. School felt like that too. But RMS showed me a way to think on my own.

These ideas shifted my entire thinking, about everything.


@jalcine RMS's work, ethic and philosphy changed my life. If not for RMS, there is a significant chance I would be dead.

It was partly the Free Software ethics, but the work itself. He didn't just ask for a better world, he created it. For me as a teenager, that was a revolutionary idea- that I could personally change the world in that way. I didn't need permission from some company or government. I didn't need to protest, I could simply do it!


They: "Oh Jens you seem like a normal adult dude, what do YOU listen to to get in the mood for art? I am sure its something really high brow and current."

Dear Internet, I'm still confused about when to use QStringLiteral or QLatin1String

“For almost 20 years I have served both right and left governments indifferently.” - spoken like a proper public servant. Indifferent.
