Sadly, not only the writer of the article got it wrong. Some of the
commenters on the Wired blog are following the lines of people who get
it wrong. (for instance, the 'no music' comment... A mediaplayer was
in the works, right?) (and the Moko/Moco == Bugger in Spanish is
getting old too) :)

It's great to hear that there are so many people interested in this
thing. Gives me hope that this project has a chance. :)
