Hey all,

I am in the process of cleaning up some old projects and I have a couple of
development devices that I no longer need for so I thought I would see if
there is interest here.

The first is a Gigabeat F with JTAG and UART soldered out the side with a
ribbon cable - it is missing the side and bottom panel but is otherwise in
one piece. The touch pad is sensitive which makes it difficult to use
through the menus, but I might have another digitizer I can send with it
along with some other spare parts. It has a 30GB hard drive.

The second is an Olympus M:Robe 500 with JTAG soldered out the top (with a
small cut in the case to accommodate the ribbon cable). From what I recall
JTAG is a bit twitchy though. The Olympus comes with a stand, remote
control, and a homemade USB cable. There is a 20GB hard drive in this
device and I have replaced the flash so it has a fully replaced bootloader
- boot time from fully off is about 10 seconds or so. The boot process is
a little iffy though - sometimes the screen tweaks out and it has to be

Both would come with a power supply if I can find them.

I do not have time to hack on them anymore so they are free to a developer
that would give them a good home (if anyone is even interested). I don't
mind shipping in the USA for free - anything else would have to be
