Name that Ware June 2007

The ware for June 2007 is shown below. Click on the image for a much larger version.

This particular ware was delivered to me as part of a devkit for a very cool open source hardware project that you may have heard about recently (and no, I’m not talking about chumby). I think I’ve said enough. :-)

And no, no iPhone photos–too easy to guess, and also no point in presenting what I already knew would be plastered all over the net. This is in addition to the fact that I actually have little desire to blow over half a g on an iPhone–I think my next phone will be a Blackberry 8800. Call me old fashioned, but for mission-critical technology like a phone, I prefer tried and true over trendy and new! And if I ever change my mind, I will appreciate the fact that millions of other people will be debugging and field-testing this brand new phone platform for me over the next few months…

    Of course, this would be my third time winning (although I have yet to decide on my prizes for the first two), so hopefully someone else will chime in soon. :)

    it’s for 245d1848842ab22ab444b0aec9b50db4, url which shows the board is 58b6824fa51ad48f4915adb56693c22e .

    But i’ve cheated a bit – I’ve met a person working on that project who told me that they have sent you one of them. And you later confirmed to me that you have received that :)

    A USB multifunction hub that includes a 10 and 20 pin JTAG.

    Would guess the open source phone like the openmoki.

    specifically I should have said Neo1973 debug board:

    I was going to guess OpenMoko on the premise of open source hardware alone.

    On a side note, I love all of these open hardware designs, but what projects have made it out of people basements and garages into the hands of people wanting to just play with them. I’m a tinkerer and I could never build such a complicated device with my skills, I can do some basic stuff, but you give me a piece of hardware and I’ll hack the hell out of it on the software side.

    What I’ve noticed on these projects is that the hardware might be nifty and genuinely amazing, but its almost as if there are too few people capable of the whole “bootstrapping” from hardware to software, and the projects suffer from a eventual lack of interest from the “do-it-all” maintainer. I would not blame him either, some of these things are an incredible undertaking.

    Whats your take on this bunnie?
