I really don't believe Larry is foolish enough to try and push gesture control at this point. In any case, I'm pretty much satisfied with the campaign. LHLabs has been really accommodating, considering how demanding the community is. I mean, we have entire wings of the community asking for a huge variety of features, while we have a whole separate wing that is asking for NO MORE CHANGES/ADDITIONS. I think the fact that LHLabs has been so willing to deal with the anger and infighting is remarkable.
In any case, my main qualms have been addressed, basically. I'm still unsure what's going to happen with the UI, but honestly, I've used some of the worst UIs around in earlier hifi players, so as long as it's at least DX90 level, UI-wise, then I can't complain.
At this point, there is no way that the stretch goal won't be reached in time (which was my main remaining qualm about the player), so I think I can safely back out and watch this run its course.
I have an AK240 killer, sound-wise, for a ridiculously good price, which will finally look the part. That's really all I wanted for the campaign anyway (and maybe to introduce more people to portable hi-fi, which this seems to have done, at least a bit).
Good luck with all the features that you all still want! I'll probably stop pushing the indiegogo thread and answering questions. See you in 16 days, lol!
