Lunch time, and I redesigned the PCB, as well as added some extra stuff.

Skipping R4 for manufacturing, will go straight to R5.

Fun fact: The original iPhone PCB went through about 10,000 revisions, imagine that… Picture attached at the end.

I am estimating my hardware to go about ten revisions, until we get to Beta R1. Does that mean I'm three orders of magnitude better than them? Stay tuned!

Check out the first iPhone alpha mockup board, very educational.
