                                • Wayne talks with 'bdug; who throws a thought that maybe we need to rebrand away from Canonical. Has their 'abandonment' created more negative than positive for UBports project?

                                • Wayne and Joe slip into bad fake French

                                • Careful what info you are looking for because - you will likely find it

                                • Rats on restaurant tables are fun to talk about

                                • Wayne whips out m130 palm and logitech fold up keyboard (photo)

                                • What hardware do we actually need?

                                • Is the Fairphone irresistible enough to be the convergent device ?

                                • Will Joe try to take the screen off fp2? Check out how easy it is!

                                • Dock + unity8 + 'Stationdock' + hardware = new simple approach

                                • Why has no one done this yet? Price? Experience?

                                • Wayne has compassion for Canonical's dropping of Ubuntu Touch

                                • Congratulations to Fairphone for getting device as far as they have!

                                • Is Fairphone price too high?

                                • Would raising enough capital for 'Newco' and having a beefy marketing branding approach be enough for success?

                                • Is brick and mortar store for 'Newco' a needed addition (Tesla, Apple model)?

                                • Proposed simplified solutions:

                                • Mobile environment: smartphone + fold up keyboard and mouse

                                • Stationary environment: smartphone + Station dock, + full keyboard and mouse, +screen of your choice

                                • Big Daddy Dock and Baby Dock!

                                • What happens if you lose your device? Home Box! Freedom Box!

                                • What about a federated, non internet, bluetooth and encrypted sync system?

                                • What about a .iso flash clone system for device on Home Box?

                                • "What about making the device less valuable instead of more valuable?" - Joe
