first of all, sorry for the huge delay on the project, i am currently waiting for the firast 2 pcb's to arrive, as they are currently on a plane to my country as i type this.

i also ordered a new casing, one which is a bit more durable (thicker walls and such) i needed to redesign it completely, as the old model had some errors which were hard to solve. (will look almost the same)

next, i had an idea last weekend of implementing interrupted events for apps, but i don't know how to implement it exactly, but i'm going to give it a shot :)

MicroSD support will NOT be implemented because of the following reasons (even though the screen breakout has a microsd slot):

- slow interface in combination with the screen, as the custom pcb's use a bitbanged interface (spi had some errors)

- power consumpion is just too huge for the tiny (still 500mAh) battery in the current design.

i hope to get my pcb's coming week, otherwise i won't make it for the deadline to shoot another video for the contest.

anyhow, that's it for now, i hope this will be enough information for now. :)
