Alibaba is weird as hell, a few years ago I remember seeing listings for all sorts of wacky shit like fucking PLUTONIUM materials. (hi NSA) Here are related links from a year or so ago:

Now don't get me wrong, those sellers could have been "honey pot" sting operations or whatever, but when you searched that shit on alibaba awhile back, that shit came up. Now it doesn't, but when you google alibaba+plutonium, there are interesting links that now link to nothing.

http://www.aliexpress.com/cheap/cheap-plutonium-metal.html acts like it thought you meant "platinum shoes" but what's up with that URL ?

For what they're aiming for?... An X1 is the smarter option. Because at that price point? Razers entry in to the competition is tough to beat.
Even still snapdragon 805 isn't as good as k1 although It close. But the forge will be a big competition for ouya unless the up the specs

Ouya will lose out. The first generation didn't appeal to the right people, and with options to stream your pc library for ~$100? They NEED that power.

I know they need the power but I was just saying snap 805 is about equal or a little weaker than k1
Yup. I'm just saying that for the price, the forge would be the better option. The Ouya is/was marketed to be an android console. Didn't work out. The UI was sloppy and it was outdated day 1.
